The Shield,
What a statement WWE made by having The Shield make their original entrance on Raw.

Sometimes the simplest things can be the most powerful and WWE had been shying away from doing The Shield's original interest at first, they made sure to do it this week on Monday Night Raw. Not only did doing that create a fight like feel to the opening segment of the night, it also gave the night a nostalgic feel of sorts.

Again, having them walk through the crowd might seem like something very simple, but it contributing to the aesthetic of the night that few other things would have. Furthermore, it gave fans quite the surprise from the get-go, which had to leave many of them gasping in amazement as they saw The Hounds of justice ascend to the ring.
