Con: Lack of other factions on Raw
While having one of the most popular indy acts under your thumb and on your biggest show is a good thing, the lack of other three men factions on Raw could quickly spell the team’s due. Sure, WWE could put the new Shield team against The Balor Club, but doing so doesn’t sound very exciting and the team probably wouldn’t have many booking options moving forward.
Of course WWE could create another faction to battle The Balor Club, which would be a great excuse for a few NXT call ups, but that’s just wishful thinking right now. In the end, its going to be interesting to see how WWE books a team like this moving forward.
