Upset Alert: Usos and Christian Defeat The Shield on Smackdown 6-28-13

by Brian Phelps

This past Friday on the June 28th, 2013 edition of Smackdown, The Usos and Christian defeated The Shield CLEANLY in what has to be one of the biggest upsets of the last couple of years. While I am happy for Christian and even more for the Usos, I must say that the booking makes no sense.

What WWE is telling you is that John Cena, Daniel Bryan, and Kane could not defeat The Shield.
Ryback and Team Hell No could not defeat The Shield.
Chris Jericho and Team Hell No could not defeat The Shield.
The Undertaker, Kane, and Daniel Bryan could not defeat The Shield.

But... Christian and the Usos defeated The Shield clean? This is what doesn't make sense sometimes about WWE's booking style. They spent the last 8 months showing us that the biggest names in the business such as John Cena, The Rock, The Undertaker, Ryback, etc could not stop the Shield... but now they expect us all to believe that the Usos who most of the time can't even make it on the Pay-Per-View cards and long time upper mid-carder Christian can beat them. 

Is this more a case of the rise of The Usos or the start of the marginalization of The Shield?
