The Shield could be getting a new member

It has become a forgone conclusion that Roman Reigns will soon turn face and break away from The Shield. Although, it has not become clear where that leaves Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.

According to F4Wonline.com, Reigns will probably split from his partners in February, but when he does, that may not mean the end of The Shield, as WWE has discussed bringing in a new member to replace Reigns, with Mason Ryan being discussed as a potential candidate.

To me, this seems like a bad idea. When Reigns finally does go out on his own, he is going to be a huge star, that leaves anybody who replaces him to forever be “the guy who replaced Roman Reigns”. If Reigns pans out as a star, it’s tough to imagine anybody succeeding in that role. I think Ryan is as good a candidate as anybody, he’s got the look, and he could play a similar character, but Reigns should immediately enter the title picture after WrestleMania XXX, and that’s going to set a high bar. If that’s the case, Ryan is going to constantly be compared to Reigns, and that would do Ryan no favors.

What do you think? Would you like to see Reigns be replaced in The Shield? Who would you like to see replace him? Or would you rather The Shield just disband? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
