There definitely is strength in numbers.
Since bursting onto the WWE scene at last November’s Survivor Series, The Shield has made life more than uncomfortable for WWE’s top babyfaces. They have taken WWE’s top babyfaces and made them look more like jobbers. Their pack mentality definitely puts the odds in their favor whether they charge the ring under cloak of darkness—as they did on Raw and at last month’s Royal Rumble—or calmly walk down the steps through the fans on their way to the ring.
There is no doubt that the trio of Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins has caught the attention of WWE stars such as John Cena, Sheamus, Chris Jericho and Ryback. On two straight nights, The Shield defeated combos of those Superstars in three-man tag team matches. And from the moment they first set foot in WWE, they have made Ryback their personal plaything, knocking him around like one of those WWE Brawlin' Buddy toys.
Nothing has been set in stone yet, but it has to be a gimme that The Shield will play a major part at WrestleMania 29.
In the past, WrestleManias have served as both starting and stopping points in programs. But in The Shield’s case, it will serve as a launching pad for dominance through the rest of 2013 and beyond.
Let’s take a look at how they could dominate.
