Earlier this week, we witnessed the 2012 WWE Survivor Series, one of the premier pay per views of the year for the WWE. As reported here at Rant Sports, the night of the pay per view, the WWE Championship triple threat match between CM Punk, Ryback and John Cena ended with Punk receiving the assistance from three unknown “guns for hire”. We soon found out that said assailants were none other than Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose from NXT.
NXT is the online/Hulu only show on the WWE televised weekly rotation where it has turned from “reality show like” competing ground to a developmental ground for future talent to be called up to the “big leagues”.
It appears that these three have a name for their soon to be developed stable. That name is “The Shield”
The name parallels well with the job that has been given to these three in terms of protecting the WWE Champion and making sure that he continues to walk out of the arena still holding the WWE Championship. You can say that these men are SHIELDING CM Punk.
No word if these three have been officially hired by Paul Heyman or not, but chances are this is very likely. We saw them for the first time at the Survivor Series and then we saw them again on Monday Night Raw closing out the show. With these three men involved so close with CM Punk, it is only evident that we should see more of them as the story unfolds.
