The Shield’s domination of the WWE has only just begun.

That’s a bold statement considering The Shield’s journey since their debut at Survivor Series. They are undefeated in six-man tag matches and achieved milestone victories at Extreme Rules.

Dean Ambrose brought The Shield their first championship by defeating Kofi Kingston for the United States title. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns ended the night by taking the WWE Tag Team titles from Team Hell No, which makes them the first faction to have all members hold titles at the same time since Evolution in 2003.

The Shield continued their dominance by defeating Team Hell No and Kingston in a six-man tag on the May 20 edition of Raw. They’re showing no signs of slowing down, and they consistently bring excitement to the WWE.

Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns electrify the crowd in any match they’re in. They bring an unpredictable element that is sorely lacking in the wrestling industry today.

Their passion for the wrestling business shines through not just in their matches, but also in their promos. The Shield captivates us with straightforward promos thanks to their delivery along with the fact that each character is distinct from the other.

Ambrose is the technician of the group, which is why it makes sense for him to capture the first singles title of the three. Rollins is the risk taker, as he dives through the ropes with ease. Reigns is their soft-spoken powerhouse, who quickly became a factor of the group since their debut.

Each man doesn’t sound like the other, either. They bring their unique skills to every facet of the wrestling world, almost like an A-Team, minus Hannibal Smith of course.

They are united by one goal: bring justice to the WWE. The Shield has the United States and World Tag Team titles in their possession. Every wrestler that has done battle against Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins has failed.

It doesn’t look like The Shield will slow down anytime soon.
