    Reigns talks about original Shield plans

    On their debut and one of the original ideas officials had for them:

    “Yeah, we debuted at Survivor Series — the coolest part of that is we were supposed to have like shields. It was really… for lack of a better word… it was really lame. We had like, literal riot shields… fiberglass riot shields with the word “Shield” written up it. We were like…’everyone will know who we are…geez’. We just pictured… trying to get into the ring with these things. Like, for years now… you go into the ring a certain way, and you’re not usually carrying a huge, plastic shield. So, we just had this terrifying nightmare of not being able slide in and we’re like stuck..we can’t get in and we’re looking up and there’s Ryback standing over us, and we’ve completely blown the whole debut. So, immediately, Vince was like ‘What, are you guys wussies? You need that?’ We’re like ‘No’. And he’s like ‘Good, leave them’, and we just ran in there and we beat the dog piss out of Ryback and put him through the table.”

    I remember people being mad about the rumors of them being called The Shield initially.

    Seems to have worked well.
