Bring on the Shield
What's better than a heel? ...a group of heels, clearly.
The Straight Edge Society, led by CM Punk, was cult-like. Punk was their Messiah, and they were willing to do anything to protect him and their way of life. The Nexus, led by Wade Barrett (and later Punk), was a group of rookies forcing their way into the WWE no matter the consequences, and great talent like Barrett, Heath Slater, David Otunga, Daniel Bryan, and Justin Gabriel carved a path for themselves because of it.
Now, as "Sierra. Hotel. India. Echo. Lima. Delta." hits the speakers, its instant recognition with The Shield prepares audience members for the chaos that is sure to ensue. Beginning with sneak attacks, The Shield is now being offered legitimate matches against crowd favorites like John Cena, Sheamus, Chris Jericho, and Ryback. These "super groups" they've made still haven't slowed down The Shield's momentum, and Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins have been cutting excellent promos to coincide with the matches.
Heading into WrestleMania, The Shield has made many enemies: Rollins was the victim of an RKO by Randy Orton a few weeks ago, and Reigns was taken out by Big Show's WMD. Hopefully this will lead to another tag match, giving The Shield the opportunity of a lifetime to take on some of the best wrestlers in the WWE on the biggest stage you could possibly ask for.
