The Shield compared to the Freebirds: Following last night’s Raw both JBL and Jim Ross compared The Shield to legendary trio the Fabulous Freebirds… JR Tweeted: “The Shield brings a refreshing, intense dynamic to @WWE. The three distinct styles operating as a unit reminds me of The Fabulous Freebirds” JBL Tweeted: “I’ve never seen a group step up faster and do better quicker on a top level then The Shield. Reminds me of Freebirds-who I knew well.” The Shield were given back to back victories at the Elimination Chamber and last night’s Raw. ____________________________________________________________ Superstars discuss new WWE belt design: Several WWE and associated stars took to Twitter to comment on the Rock’s new WWE Championship belt design… David Otunga: “The new @WWE Championship looks like a giant Super Bowl Championship ring. Looks expensive. @WWEUniverse #RAW #RAWLafayette” Jim Ross: “Everyone complaining can rejoice…@TheRock is unveiling a new championship title. #WWE Customized, no less. #controversial? Yep.” Bo Dallas: “New WWE Title I digg it #keepitclassy” BG James: “I appreciate all the feedback about the new title, honesty is mandatory in communication and I thank you, but it’s the New Title! #OUDK” JBL: “The unveiling of MY old championship belt! Was changed when Cena took it from me and NOW it is back-well kinda….looks great!” Paige: “Now THATS a title. #NewWWETitle #WWE #RAW” Edge: “Way better than that spinner shipwreck” The design has been waiting in the wings for months and images were leaked last year, however it’s been slightly modified since then. It seems each holder of the belt will get personalized side plates. ____________________________________________________________ Scott Hall arrives at airport for DDP Yoga: Here is a photo of Scott Hall arriving at the airport to join DDP and Jake Roberts to begin his rehab and Yoga regime… It’s going to be tough if Hall is staring out in a wheel chair. ____________________________________________________________ Harlem Shake at TNA house show: TNA filmed a “Harlem Shake” at the Sunday house show from Morgantown, West Virginia.
