- The all-time attendance record for the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is 78,344 for the 1997 Sugar Bowl game, however the building has been reconfigured since then. A sellout for the New Orleans Saints football team is 73,209. For a WrestleMania, since so much of the stadium is blocked off for the stage and other production equipment (more than what they make up by having seats on the field), a legitimate estimate of how many fans they can accommodate will be around 65,000 fans. WWE typically exaggerates the WrestleMania attendance by up to 10,000 to announce they have broken the venue’s all time record.

– Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have been getting rave reviews behind the scenes in WWE. All three members of The Shield are seen as having breakout potential, with Reigns having the look and intensity of a top tier guy, Rollins being a great worker and Dean Ambrose having the β€œit” factor that sets him apart from everybody else. Ambrose has been given the strong compliment of compared to a modern day Terry Funk.

    All 3 are future stars. Reigns will grow into the role of a big heel, Ambrose looks like future WWE Champion already and Rollins just feels like the next shawn michaels or jeff hardy.

    At first I thought of the Shield as a mix of a modern NWO/Nexus, but they have proved me wrong. All 3 of these guys are really stepping it up and if done right Dean Ambrose will be a tremendous heel singles wrestler once they break them up. I think Reigns can get up to main event status cause of his look and Rollins wrestling skills are entertaining but I think he will be the odd man out and stay mid-card, get the Kofi Kingston treatment

    I hope two members win the tag titles with the third member taking the intercontinental or united states title.

    Dean Ambrose looks like the true star to me. They’re all fantastic, but Ambrose looks so crazy, he just might make it in the WWE, big time.

    Everyone has a purpose in The Shield
    Dean Ambrose is the leader, the talker, the Joker, the weird and twisted dude
    Seth Rollins is the daredevil, the hard worker, the extreme enigma, the guy with aces up his sleeve all the the time
    Roman Reigns is the guy with family background, look, power, beast mode attacks and recently from what I saw… intensity, the spear he executes is similar to Edge’s in power and intensity

  • Dan

    Reigns has impressed me the most. I knew the others were good, but Reigns was considered too green and many saw him as taking the spot of someone like Chris Hero/Kassius Ohno, and yet he’s looked far from being the weak link of the group.
