As to the poster above re: needing to see bigger things from the shield. It's been needed for a long time now. To me, their debut was strong, Ryback's character was still green I'll say. The perceived injustice was apparent. After that, their attacks vs just about everyone else were way too random for me to jump on the storyline. Especially without getting in the ring in an actual match. Them jumping the rock and cena... Eh, I guess you could say there were injustices w both. The rest of the roster... Give me a reason for the beatdown, give it a story for the universe to get behind and say 'yeah, they're right!'. The potential is there. Turn the page and let's see if they can live up to it.
I still think the Shield is a wildcard in terms of what is going to happen next, and I like it that way. They're not rushing it along like the Nexus and so far it's working quite well IMO. They've all been booked strong despite using a pack mentality, and despite not really getting much info on them or consistent air time they're still regarded in the WWE as a top force on the heel side. A win for them at the chamber ppv would do wonders. Sadly, I expect them to lose badly very soon, basically killing their credibility.

You may very well be right. I was clamoring all last year for Ambrose to be on WWE, but, to my surprise, the wait and execution they used debuting him turned out very well. Same could happen with whatever the next phase of the Shield happens to be. I just think the WWE needs to be careful about overusing the same tactic over and over again without any clear path forward. Again, I'll wait and see, but they expiration date on their current phase has passed in my opinion.

Also, I want to see Ambrose evolve and give promo's/interviews that are more psychologically rooted. Right now it's all about "The Shield" and kind of restricts his character development to a degree. So in summary, I hope to soon see him in the WWE as "Dean Ambrose" and not just "Dean Ambrose of the Shield".

Someone should have told me Undertaker was going to be at the Super Bowl. I would have tuned in.

WWE vs NFL - Invasion 2.0

For those watching the Super Bowl - this is the arena that's supposedly hosting Wrestlemania 29.

Yep. Lights went out, gong hit, 'Taker was there.

Then the lights stayed out and Jericho's music hit, but JeriTroll struck and he didn't appear.

i was thinking the game was really WWF-ish... Ravens beat the hell out of the 49ers, Lights go out, 49ers hulk up for the comeback, bad call by the referee(s) and Ravens find a way to win. Only thing missing was McMahon restarting that SF play near the end.

Vince McMahon took advantage of the injury angle shot at Raw last week and had hip surgery on Friday. He is at Raw today and moving around via crutches. He came in early and was seen overseeing production pieces for the Fandango character.

Surgery on Friday and there on Monday, damn. Fandango debuting tonight?

I imagine them trying to make Fandango into the PG version of Val Venis.
