- The Shield has been impressing a lot of people in WWE with their recent work, including WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross and WWE announcer JBL. Both JR and JBL compared the 3-man group to the legendary Fabulous Freebirds. They tweeted:
JR: “The Shield brings a refreshing, intense dynamic to @WWE. The three distinct styles operating as a unit reminds me of The Fabulous Freebirds”
JBL: “I’ve never seen a group step up faster and do better quicker on a top level then The Shield. Reminds me of Freebirds-who I knew well.”
As noted earlier, Chris Jericho also called The Shield the future of WWE after wrestling them last night on RAW.
“Expanding my administration, welcome Mr. Maddox. Ready to share my wisdom with @bradmaddoxisthewwe”
Maddox, who was trending on Tweeted during RAW, tweeted:
“I’m trending. And I’m Assistant Managing Supervisor. One is for money and one is cause I’m cool”
