The Shield turned to the light side last week. That's perfect!
They were already favorites even when they played the "heels," because who could honestly not love their act?
Now, with this recent turn The Shield should somehow get under The Authority's skin and siphon off a little Daniel Bryan energy to make them even more loved.
Each superstar in that group stands out.
Dean Ambrose is still the United States Champion, and his psychotic personality makes him the most interesting of the bunch, so it will be amazing to watch him develop in coming months.
Most likely he will have to defend that championship soon as the one-year mark approaches. How will that be booked? Will he face a strong challenger or another champion?
Seth Rollins is fast and has a nice variety of moves at his disposal. His mic work is very good, similar to that of CM Punk. His future seems bright, and the fans love him.
As for Roman Reigns: He is the one poised for an impressive push this year, as WWE made it quite clear lately that they want him strong. His Royal Rumble performance is proof.
However, as mentioned before, taking the time to properly establish this character is vital. There have been many disappointments in recent years, and therefore working to prevent future ones is essential here.
Fans want to see The Shield; fans love The Shield. So changing their attitude was the first step. Now all that the company needs to do is steer them in the right direction and the rest will happen on its own.
They are that good.
