– Mick Foley has published a new Facebook post about The Shield. Here’s part of what he wrote:

“I don’t know if there’s going to be a true split between the SHIELD. or if the weeks long rift is going to turn out to be a false alarm. I think there has to be an eventual parting of the ways, if only because it’s been obvious from the start that all three members – Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose had promising singles careers ahead of them. But if/when that split happens, the WWE Universe will be ready for it.

In a business where things seem to move at warp speed, where we sometimes are in such a hurry to turn out a product that we forget to take our time with it, storylines can often jump onto our screens on our screen like a quick, microwaved meal – they gets the job done, but without any real passion in the craftsmanship, and ultimately, completey unmemorable. But WWE has taken the time to put the right spices into this angle, and when it emerges from the oven, it’s going to fully seasoned, and baked with that old world cratsmanship – something we can all savor for a while.”

    That would so sell.

    I agree with you, ideally they’ll have the dream match against the Wyatt family (I’d have Wyatt cut a promo stating that he owns this ring “his yard” leading to the Shield’s music hitting and them storming the ring) before having a relatively amicable break up and then going their separate ways so there’s the lingering potential for the 3 of them to joining up again. My main concern is that many talented workers are already lost in the shuffle, and that now there’s only one top title its highly likely that as 3 solo guys they’ll struggle to break through into that upper tier.

    Thanks Dan. Then a second appearance at WM for the Sheild would be that next step to appear to have some integrity as a faction and garner more respect from me, but I guess I’d like to see all or just a couple break out.

    They had a match last year vs Orton, Big Show and Sheamus with most of the focus being put on whether Show could be trusted and teasing a potential Orton heel turn. The closest thing the Shield got to a proper “Wrestlemania moment” (other than the win) was their crowd entrance through such a big crowd.

  • Shawn OB

    I’d like them to have a match as the Sheild at WM just because so they can establish themselves as a successful faction in the history of WWE. As far as my memory is for last years WM, they haven’t had one.
