It’s not hard to see why The Shield; collectively made up of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns; are getting some good pop as of late. These guys used to be The Authority’s hired guns, but it turned out to be the other way around. These guys are completely over with the fans, and the response is downright positive.
I have been a fan of those guys for a long time, since their WWE debut and dominating with their brand of justice and great promos along the way. Not everybody can have the big time impact they have had in recent weeks and roll with it. The list can go on and on. Their war with The Wyatt Family really solidified themselves as the anti-heroes of WWE to new degrees. Love them or hate them, these guys can go to war with the best of them.
Their match against Kane and The New Age Outlaws will be interesting because you got the superstars of the future on one side and the Attitude Era’s biggest stars on the other. It should be a great match with lots of vicious brawling and less technical wrestling. This war will put the Shield over as fan favorites big time. It’s up to the creative geniuses at WWE on how they can sustain this momentum full time, because the direction is a little out of sync with the Internet Wrestling Community and the marks who root for the ex-Indy guys in WWE and not some of the established wrestlers in the promotion. Call me biased, but I think this idea should work.
