Am I the only one that thinks Punk isn't involved with "The Shield"

What if this isn't Punks "revolution" or "group of change"

What if its Cena pulling the strings in The Shield? I might be wrong but its a good guess, from my understanding Cena never beat Punk? Correct me if im wrong, but what if "The Shield" is protecting CM Punk from dropping the title to anyone until Cena gets back into the title hunt. Cena could want revenge or to redeem himself from all the chances at the title or its steaming from jealousy?



We know punk hates us internet wrestling fans, he constantly throws shots with heyman at us on RAW and even through twitter. Punk has even trolled us before in ROH before he left for the WWE. I highly doubt Punk would agree to do a storyline where it seems so obvious that hes apart of something, i could be wrong...

Thoughts?!

It's plausible. But right now, I'm not going to make up any crazy theories. I'm just going to sit back, and go along with the ride.

1. Cena will never turn heel while Vince is still in control of the company.

2. If he was with the Shield, then he would have won the title at SS.

I think Punk will ultimately be revealed as the mastermind behind all of it. Considering what they said last night, but so far WWE is doing a good job keeping people guessing. I wouldn't be at all disappointed if they were just out for self and destroyed Punk as well.

It would make perfect sense, and that's why I don't see it happening.

The Shield claims they're not affiliated with Punk, but it's obvious that they're protecting him. They're protecting the title from Ryback. A few weeks ago, they teased a Ryback vs. Cena feud and went out of their way to make Cena appear intimidated. I noticed it instantly and was shocked because Cena hasn't had that look on his face in six years. Even when he was feuding with Brock Lesnar, he usually had a cheesy grin. It's obvious that John Cena is scared of Ryback. I think they're also trying to make him look a little jealous of Ryback. He'd want to have a group of guys take him out before he can beat Punk for the title so he doesn't have to worry about Ryback stealing the spotlight as the top babyface. He also thinks he has a better chance of beating CM Punk than Ryback. He's keeping The Shield secret and he deliberately picked wrestlers that seem somewhat similar to CM Punk so that no one would suspect him. If he gets caught, Cena's squeaky clean image is ruined. It's a fantastic story and it makes a hell of a lot more sense than them being CM Punk's lackeys. Even the "Shield" gimmick makes more sense with Cena. He's always claimed to fight for truth and justice. That's why it won't happen though. WWE isn't known for writing stories that make sense, let alone really good ones. Besides, they're still living in a fantasy world where John Cena is the most popular wrestler, even though that hasn't been the case since early 2011.

Although it sounds great I don't see that being the case considering.. it's WWE. However, this does open up my eyes on the possibility that The Rock might lose at the Royal Rumble.

The Shield said they weren't working for Punk. They never said anything about working for Paul Heyman.

One shortfall. Cena turning heel is unlikely.

You Winnipeg idiots are looking far into it. Go with the flow, working for Paul Heyman. Noticed he wasnt there at the end. Jk

What if no one was behind it and they were a newer version of Nexus?
I don't like repeating storylines, but I'd love to see these guys on a crusade to take over the WWE.

Well, but if it was Cena, why did the Shield allow Punk to pin him at Survivor Series?


I'm not sure what I'd rather like to see. The Shield revealing that they've been working for Heyman and Punk or them being out there without anybody else pulling the strings. I'd love a swerve, but I don't really believe it'll happen.

To make the suspicions of Cena leading them look more bogus. It was just one loss.

If Cena pulls the strings there is no reason for them (Ambrose/Rollins/Reigns) to let Punk retain the title. Why should Cena would want to lose the match and not to win the title. If he wants to lose he can do this alone.

I don't think they're working for Punk. They will attack him one week, but Cena won't turn heel.

This is a reasonable reason why the Shield is here. From someone else on a different forum.

So what's going to happen?

The Obvious
1. Paul Heyman hired The Shield to protect Punk because deep down he feels Punk is too weak to hold on to the title by himself. The way Heyman is always seen clutching the title to his chest might suggest that he is using Punk to forge himself a position of power. Eventually Punk discovers this and starts to doubt himself. This causes Punk to lose to the Rock at the Rumble. Heyman dumps Punk, BAM Punk face turn (too soon?). Heyman could then get Lesnar involved somehow.
