On Sunday at WWE’s Elimination Chamber PPV two of the most exciting and unique teams on the modern era will go face to face; The Shield will face The Wyatt Family.
The Shield debuted at Survivor Series 2012 and for months went on to dominate and destroy everyone and everything in their path, including The Undertaker and John Cena. They didn’t lose for a number of months and at one stage they all held championships. Dean Ambrose won the United States Championship and still holds the title to date, while Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns won the Tag Team Championships. The Shield have a unique entrance, a unique promo style with the handheld camcorder gimmick and a great style to boot.
Rollins is the fast paced, athletic member. Ambrose is the crazy, unorthodox member. Reigns is the powerhouse. Each element meshes extremely well in matches and The Shield’s 6-man tag team matches have been a highlight of WWE programming since their debut match at TLC.
The Wyatt Family debuted in summer 2013 after a number of vignettes teased their debut. The Wyatts are a creepy, cult-like team who are led by Bray Wyatt. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan make up the muscle of the team and they are often seen doing Wyatt’s bidding.
Again, The Wyatt Family have a unique entrance but instead of entering through the crowd like The Shield, they enter with nothing but a lamp guiding their way to the ring and a rocking chair in tow for Wyatt to sit on. The Wyatt’s don’t have varying styles like The Shield, instead they are primarily based on power with Wyatt and Harper being deceptively quick.
Over the last few weeks, WWE have teased The Wyatt Family challenging The Shield at Elimination Chamber with a number of tense stand-offs that have had the crowd buzzing at the prospect of the match.
Both teams are incredibly popular and even the mere hint of a brawl between the two has elicited big reactions from the crowds. On Monday’s RAW, the two teams finally went at it in a brawl to close the show but on Sunday at Elimination Chamber there should be a fantastic 6-man tag team match featuring the present and future of the WWE – Roman Reigns is being primed for the big time, in case you missed it.
The match at Elimination Chamber is so big it could be saved for WrestleMania but on Sunday we should get a WrestleMania quality match; it has excitement and intrigue, power and athleticism.
Wyatt vs Reigns. Harper and Rowan vs Rollins and Ambrose. The Shield vs The Wyatt Family.
