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.

    They CANNOT Break up. There one of the best teams since NWO..The WWE cant just break them up after a year. give them another year or two.. so they can dominate the wwe ..possible hold the Tag Titles, World Title..and get a DIVA, Possible Kaitlyn, to join them and hold the DIVAS Title.

      I agree with you. I think these guys still have a lot left in them, that’s why they want to bring in a new member to replace Reigns when he leaves. But it won’t work, it’s the three original members who make them great.

    Curt Hawkins Possibly Replacing Roman Reigns In The Shield

  • Guest

    The feeling this week is that when Roman Reigns does his babyface turn and split from the Shield, likely in February, that he’ll be replaced with a new guy in the group. The name Curt Hawkins has been thrown around as a possibility.
