This is the best thing that could have happened to The Shield it keeps them very relevant as they continue to learn/improve their craft in WWE and you know they are staying as hired guns for HHH for the foreseeable future.
I'm loving the angle so far you just know eventually those 3 are getting their asses handed to them along with HHH & Orton, who, over the past few weeks has shown he is piss poor on the mic and generally in promos (facial expression & body language) for me. He really is a boring guy even with the heel turn and title on his shoulder.
This will run until WM, gaining momentum big time at Battleground IMO. This is where I can see Ziggler, Show and Miz becoming physically involved in the rivalry and also VKM becoming the rival to HHH to beat his "power trip" and show he's the real man in charge in the WWE.
