When it comes to professional wrestling, people tend to know more about singles superstars and sometimes tag even teams, but very rarely one would find a 3 man team headlining events. Every 3 man stable has a leader and that team is either made to push the leader or the whole group.
The Shield has 3 superstars in it, namely Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. All these superstars have a huge hand in taking WWE to the level they are and every one of them has a definite skill set. No one would argue that this stable has been loved by millions across the globe.
So, in this slideshow, we discuss the 3 reasons why The Hounds Of Justice can be regarded as one of the best 3 man teams of this generation.
#3 Their individual skills
All the members of The Shield have different skill set and move set, and we that is what makes them one of the best in the business.
Reigns has been not been the fan favourite in the WWE for the past couple of years. He definitely has the looks to be the face of the company, but his promo's let him down sometimes.
Over the past couple of years, after that promo battle with John Cena, he has quietly improved the quality of his promos. His move set is also brilliant, considering the size of the man. He is not that technical, but his moves signify his bad-ass persona.
Seth Rollins is more of a clinical and technical wrestler. He has all the moves in the book to make him an unstoppable force. His agility and reflexes can be compared to the best in the business.
His promos are also quality and he has been brilliant at that since his NXT days. His energy is indispensable to The Shield.
Last but not the least, Dean Ambrose. This guy is walking example of the phrase never give up. He can take the worst of all beat downs, but still stand on his feet. Ambrose is the most resilient of the three.
Coming to the promo part, he is one of the best in the WWE at it and clearly the best among the three. His heal days just compliment this fact. All of them three are different in their own ways and that's what makes their matches so entertaining to watch.
#2 Individual Dominance in the WWE for almost 7 years
Roman Reigns is a Grand Slam champion, that is he has won all the titles available in the WWE. He is 3-time-WWE Champion and he is a one-time-Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, Tag Team Champion and Universal Champion.
Seth Rollins is a one-time-NXT Champion, Money in the Bank winner and United States Champion. He is a two-time-WWE and Intercontinental Champion. He has won the Tag Team titles four times over the years.
Dean Ambrose is a one time WWE Champion and United States Champion. He has won two Raw Tag Team titles and 3 Intercontinental Championships. He is also a one time Money in the Bank winner.
So, over the last seven years, the three of them together have won 24 titles which just shows you the dominance of three.
#1 The quality of feuds and matches
Over the years, we have had some brilliant feuds involving The Shield. During their early days, they worked as heels who dismantled anyone that came in their way. From WWE Champions to jobbers, all suffered the wrath of the Hounds of Justice.
Then the first big feud that comes to mind is one with the Wyatt Family. Wyatt Family lead by Bray Wyatt was also considered as a brilliant 3 man stable and these two teams gave us a few matches to remember. In 2014, we witnessed the first of their many great matches over the years.
The second feud that comes to mind is the one involving Evolution which was led by Triple H. This feud also led to the splitting of The Shield. That unforgettable moment of Seth Rollins selling out his brothers which WWE sold perfectly.
The Shield has proven it from time to time that they are the real deal and they proved that again at WWE Fastlane. All the three members of this stable have gone on to become huge superstars and they thoroughly deserve it.
