* [[IronicEcho "Small, but genuine."]]"Natural. But small."]] Tina goes undercover as a prostitute to break up a sex-trafficking ring, and one of the ringleaders makes this comment about her breasts. When the sting is in action, she grabs his crotch and repeats the line to him.

** One of the first times the audience sees just how dedicated Vic is to his friends is when he finds a prostitute, Connie, lying half-naked in a room after shooting a john in Season One. After she cries to Vic that she got scared that the man might have hurt her (and shot him for no reason), Connie begs to Vic that she needs to be found innocent because of her son. Vic protests, citing that he can't help her out of the mess. Connie then convinces Vic to ''beat the crap out of her'' so the shooting looked like an accident, letting her keep custody of her son.

* An individual moment for Roman Reigns: in his traditional Survior Series elimination match (with The Shield and the Real Americans vs. the Usos, the Rhodes Brothers and ReyMysterio), he becomes his team's sole survivor, eliminating all the opposition (save for Jey Uso) with spears. Notably, he finally eliminated the returning Mysterio to win it all. To wit, if it weren't for Seth Rollins getting a Blackout on Jey Uso, Roman Reigns ''would have swept an entire five-man Survivor Series team with Spears''.

* The hits just keep coming for Roman Reigns, as he manages to pin Wrestling/CMPunk twice in one month. The second time was during a three-on-three tag match on the 1/13/2014 RAW - most notable for a particular spot where CM Punk gets hung over the bottom rope (think [[ReyMysterioJr 619-style]]) and Reigns tags in, jumps down to the floor and delivers a ''running front dropkick from the floor directly to Punk's head.'' For a guy that weighs in at 265 pounds and is known as the group's powerhouse, it was an insanely athletic move that displayed that Reigns has [[LightningBruiser well above-average agility to pair with his size and strength.]]

* [[spoiler:Despite being tragic when it comes to the characters, Seth Rollins' shocking betrayal of the Shield on June 2, 2014]] becomes this in a meta sense. Now that the company is preparing and positioning Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose into a key compelling storyline while playing to each individual's strengths, it's becomes clear that WWE believes in all three men as major players in its future.
** Dean Ambrose's reaction promo to the above event. His rage is nearly palpable, and not only does he tell [[spoiler:Seth Rollins]] he plans to rearrange his face, but he does it in [[ToThePain graphic and grisly (and you could argue non-PG) detail.]] It was a heel promo being cut by an AntiHero face, and the crowd was absolutely eating it up.

* Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2016 - four years after The Shield's debut: Ambrose is up against Reigns and Rollins as part of the Smackdown vs. Raw Men's Traditional Elimination match. [[spoiler:Doesn't stop another Shield reunion from happening, as for the first time since the split, all three members are on the same side of the face/heel spectrum. After being eliminated from the match early on, no thanks due to AJ Styles' refusal to break the pin fall, Ambrose returns the favor and attacks Styles after the match's halfway point but is held back by security. Rollins and Reigns aid Ambrose and call for another Triple Powerbomb, putting Styles through the German announce table and giving Rollins the opening needed to eliminate Styles from the match.]]
* Roadblock 2016 - [[spoiler: After Roman gets screwed out of the WWE Universal Championship by Chris Jericho, Seth Rollins comes out and the two proceed to blast both parts of Jeri-KO through announce tables. What makes this so awesome is it was preceded by Rollins and Reigns doing the old Shield fist-bump, and after they'd finished destroying Owens what gets played? Not Roman's theme or Rollins' but the original Shield theme.]]

* ''Survivor Series'' 2017. The Shield vs Wrestling/TheNewDay, a dream match between two of the best stables in WWE and it does not disappoint. Special highlights goes to the end when the New Day hit a double Midnight Hour on Ambrose and Rollins only for Reigns to break it up at the last minute by spearing Wrestling/BigE onto Wrestling/KofiKingston. Then after waylaying Big E and Wrestling/XavierWoods, including Ambrose hitting Dirty Deeds to Big E on the ring floor, the three set up Kofi for their Triple Power Bomb ''off the turnbuckle'' to score the winning pin.

** In Season Seven, Aceveda mercilessly beats down campaign-funder and drug tycoon Cruz Pezuela in front of his boss, then pulls a gun on Mackey when he tries to intervene. When Aceveda finishes talking down to Pezuela for thinking of him as his "errand boy", he rubs in Mackey's face the fact that, by doing this, he has screwed up the last chance Mackey had for working in law enforcement ever again, with a smile on his face.

* ''TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs'' 2017 - Roman was unfortunately sidelined with a medical issue, which forced Wrestling/KurtAngle to take his place for the match, but in spite of that, the Shield never missed a beat. Kurt proved himself to be an ''excellent'' substitute for the afflicted Shield member, and had some truly great moments. But Seth and Dean both deserve tremendous credit. Not only did they take most of the bumps, but they still managed to get some offense in, and looked like bona fide stars in the process. No matter how much punishment their opponents (Wrestling/TheMiz, {{Wrestling/Sheamus}}, [[Wrestling/ClaudioCastagnoli Cesaro]], Wrestling/BraunStrowman, and {{Wrestling/Kane}}) put them through, they kept getting up, kept fighting, and ultimately scored the victory in the most theatrically entertaining match of the night.
