I have mixed feelings about the Kane/Daniel Bryan/Randy Orton vs. The Shield match, but mainly favoring the negative side. Yes, it was a great match, and did a great job putting all three winners over before their respective PPV matches. However, defeating The Shield clean on Smackdown after a six-month semi-undefeated (including the hiccup of them losing by DQ before Extreme Rules) streak was a bad idea.
The Shield ran roughshod over the WWE, defeating a total of eight world champions (John Cena, Kane, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, Sheamus, Big Show and The Undertaker). This win should have been saved for a PPV, with a proper build around it. Say what you want, but The Shield is starting to lose some stock as well. Yes, they are still very over, but the WWE has created a glass ceiling over them, and have not been as creative with them as the first few months of their tenure (very similar to how they booked The Nexus). Hopefully we will see more intriguing angles for The Shield in the months to come. If not, we will see more losses than wins, which would be terrible seeing how WWE really had something going with them.
Do you think The Shield should have lost clean on Smackdown? Sound off below.
