While The Shield has their backs against the wall, it's not an unfamiliar situation for them. For years, The Shield thrived on having their backs against the wall as its helped them bring out their aggressive side. And isn't that what they're most famous for?
The Shield didn't become the most popular faction in WWE by whining and complaining. They achieved it by being master tacticians, unrelenting aggressiveness and doing everything they could to get their way.
That's what makes The Shield so unique. Each member brings something different to the table, compensating for each other's weaknesses. Dean Ambrose is the mouthpiece, the lunatic and the wildcard of the group. Roman Reigns is the silent powerhouse of the group while Seth Rollins is the architect and the mastermind of the group.
With years of singles experience in their resume, imagine what they can bring together as a group. We look at The Shield's dominant run and five groups that they've put away, some comfortably, some not-so comfortably.
#5 The New Age Outlaws & Kane
