** According to Wrestling/CMPunk, the early concept for the stable was a security team built around Punk to protect his heel run as WWE Champion, with the initial members proposed being [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], Wrestling/TheBigShow, and one call-up from FCW/NXT (most likely Wrestling/SethRollins). Punk instead suggested that it would be fresher if all three men came up from developmental, specifically naming Seth Rollins, Wrestling/DeanAmbrose and Wrestling/ChrisHero as his guys. WWE liked the idea, but didn't like Chris Hero, so instead of him they got Wrestling/RomanReigns, and the Shield would eventually be distanced from Punk in the final product of the storyline. Roman Reigns himself, however, disputes CM Punk's claim here.
** Prior to signing with the WWE, Tyler Black (Seth Rollins) had been offered a deal by TNA. Jon Moxley (Dean Ambrose) also had a tryout for them as well. It really makes you wonder what would have happened to them and to Roman Reigns had either signed with TNA instead -- the Shield itself might've never existed.

*** It's worth noting there's something the members often claim, that towards the end of their run in developmental they came together in a pact that whether they would be working as allies or as enemies, they would all make it to the top of WWE. Hero has never been said to be part of this pact. Aside from simply the brass not liking Hero and preferring Reigns from the start, it's possible someone informed them of the already-close bond between Punk's other choices and Reigns and this solidified their decision to go with Reigns instead of Ohno, and it was only after that choice was made that the call-ups were first told what was going on.

* RealitySubtext: On numerous DVD commentaries, Shawn Ryan has stated that the character of Detective Dutch Wagenbach is largely based off of the real life/personality of Jay Karnes, the actor who plays the character. This has led to much teasing between Ryan and Karnes (who are long-time friends) on the DVD commentaries, whenever Ryan points out that just about every failed relationship the character Dutch has over the run the series is based (loosely) off of a real life failed relationship Karnes had.

Claudette was a male character whose gender was flipped when they couldn't find a male actor to play the role.
