* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: This is pretty much their hat. Not only do they do it often, they're actually better at it than your average "Pack of wolves" heel group who just jumps unsuspecting wrestlers from behind and uses its numbers advantage to serve up the beatdown. See DangerouslyGenreSavvy above.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** You'd think these guys sat around reading Sun Tzu's ''Art of War'' in their spare time or something. They've established a pattern of focusing all of their attention on one target and never stopping their assault until they know ''he can't get up.'' And if they must separate, they leave their biggest and most powerful guy (Reigns) to make sure no one reaches their feet while Ambrose and Rollins knock around whoever's still standing. As a result, they almost ''always'' have a numerical advantage against whoever they're fighting. Additionally, if a guy starts fighting back, Ambrose or Rollins almost always gets the opponent in a position where his hands are away from his body. Once the torso is left open, '''[[RammingAlwaysWorks CUE SPEAR.]]'''
** On the June 9, 2014 episode of ''Raw'', Reigns and Ambrose lay down a beating on 3MB, but Heath Slater manages to take only a few licks and escape up the ramp (a common {{heel}} tactic during a brawl). Ambrose continues to pummel Jinder Mahal and Drew [=McIntyre=], and while Slater strolls up the ramp (all while still facing the ring, due to Ambrose's distraction), Roman Reigns ''goes through the crowd, around the tech area, and up the side of the stage,'' meeting an unknowing Slater at the top of the ramp and flanking him with a Spear. Not only is this an ''actual military tactic,'' it also resembled [[IKnowMaddenKombat a defensive football player blitzing a quarterback from the outside]]. Reigns' gridiron background and mercenary attire might not be just for show.

* BreakupBreakout: Surprisingly averted. Near the end of their tenure, it was pretty clear that Reigns was chosen as WWE's next top babyface, and began giving him a bigger emphasis. However even after their dissolution and Reigns` thrust into the spotlight, Ambrose and Rollins have both had notable success. Rollins` betrayal of the team led to him becoming the top heel of the company for a while, and he even pinned Reigns to win his first WWE Championship. Ambrose is the "least" successful of the three, but he's ''the'' EnsembleDarkhorse and easily one of the company's most popular stars since Wrestling/DanielBryan and every match he participates in is always a fan favorite.

[[spoiler:Eventually, it reached a point where all three men were world champion within ''three minutes'' of each other. Reigns lost the title Rollins (again), only for Ambrose to cash in and win the title off him, finally cementing the Shield's status as the most successful stable in recent WWE history since Evolution]].

At one point during the time the stable was active, each member held a WWE title: Ambrose was WWE United States Champion (and holds the record for longest reign of any United States champion since WWE acquired the title from WCW), and Reigns and Rollins were WWE Tag Team Champions together under the banner of the Shield. Rollins also held the NXT Championship early on in the Shield's run.

* {{Irony}}: Each member beat another who lost to the other member in order to capture their first WWE World Heavyweight championship. Rollins defeat Reigns who later defeats Ambrose who defeats Rollins.

* MeaningfulName: The Shield name's inspiration, while obvious, becomes more significant when you remember both the FX show's Strike Team, which they more resemble as heels (taking bribes and protecting clients based on who pays the most), and the Marvel Comics agency, which they more resemble as faces (efficiently dispensing justice from the shadows).

** Wrestling/JohnCena once rallied the entire locker room to come out on the Shield to let them know they weren't going to let them continue to get away with their attacks. This probably would have spelled the end of the trio, if it weren't for the fact that they ''never did this again''.
*** FridgeBrilliance: Of course not. Not long after this event, the Shield were brought on as the muscle for Wrestling/TheAuthority, and Cena (probably the only person in the locker room that would have had the pull to try this again) went down with an injury. Perhaps the only other person who would have the clout to deal with them was CM Punk, and he was too obsessed with Paul Heyman at the time to deal with the Authority. Everyone was too scared of getting fired to mount up any resistance against them.
