The Shield is one of the most popular WWE factions of all-time and their recent reunion has had the WWE Universe abuzz with nostalgic delight. Ever since debuting at Survivor Series back in 2012, the trio of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns ruled the roost for a year and a half.

So, what was it about these three men that captured the imagination of professional wrestling fans all over the world? How did they succeed where so many other groups - like The Nexus - before them had failed? Well, that's what we're here to find out today.
