Quote  You may remember there appeared to be a feud brewing between then-NXT star Dean Ambrose and Mick Foley back in early 2012. Foley says he's thinking about discussing what happened on his comedy shows. Foley tweeted the following about Ambrose during tonight's SmackDown:

"After listening to @TheDeanAmbrose do commentary, my 10 year old turned to me, and said "Dad, he's a good talker." Indeed he is. I'm thinking about addressing my unresolved issue with @TheDeanAmbrose from #Wrestlemania 2012 as part of my 2014 live shows. #Smackdown"

Now i would be quite happy to see this .....

Ambrose has been mediocre at best in the Shield and all of the build up suggested that he would be the "one to watch" - i saw quite abit of his stuff with foley on youtube and thought it was excellent.

Hopefully we get a cactus jack v ambrose match at the end of it.

I dont really see Ambrose doing anything high profile if the shield break up as all of the focus will be rightfully on roman reigns so this could be a way to keep him in the spotlight and on tv regularly

I still maintain that Ambrose is the star of the group, but then, you #Heel, and I are about the only guys here that still see Ziggler as main event too... we also both have Wyatt sigs and avatars. So me agreeing with you means nothing. Heheh.

Why the hell is wwe breaking this group up?

They are great as a tandem and if you break them up, you have to rebuild them all individually from scratch and if they go the route of replacing Reigns in the group, it will probably work out as well as The New Nexus did. Not to mention I don't think Reigns has what it takes to be a great babyface character.

Mick Foley has admitted that doctors have told him he can't wrestle again. Have you seen him walk? He's got a serious limp these days. Even after losing some weight and doing the DDPyoga thing,

Ambrose could be like Daniel Bryan and CM Punk. But he's going to need to be at the right place at the right time. Ambrose is the best talker out of the bunch (although I'm sure that both Reigns & Rollins could improve if given the opportunity.)

Because the formula of breaking up great tag teams was super-successful 2 or 3 times in the past. That is if you count "successful" as meaning that 1 member of a team went on to be a big time main eventer while the other member(s) of the team went on to become answers to trivia question. Of course there's been far more times that breaking up a great tag team resulted in none of the guys becoming main eventers.

This gets into my argument for why I think that the Shield is better off together for at least another year. I think Reigns has great potential, but as a singles guy right now he'd get lost in the mix as he doesn't have a well-developed character yet.

Quote If the rumored Roman Reigns face turns plays out, there have reportedly been talks of having NXT talent Mason Ryan fill the vacant role in The Shield.

Nothing is confirmed as of this writing but it has been discussed in recent creative meetings.


Doesnt surprise me, he would be a good choice to provide the muscle to back up the skill of Ambrose and Rolins, this could also be another factor for a Reigns face turn - the fact they want a way to reintroduce Ryan to the main roster. I wouldn't have a problem with it, Mason Ryan has shed a bit of mass and has polished his in-ring skills in NXT, as Ive said before though I'd also like to see Adrian Neville in the group.

If they do keep The Shield going then they will probably go for a guy with a bit of size because the size of Ambrose and Rollins as well as having to replace Reigns.

Going to wave the Cesaro flag but that's a long shot.  

Would be decent if it was Cesaro but if anyone it would probably be someone like mason ryan

How did that whole Batista-Mason Ryan comparison start? I have seen the meme, but was that the start of it?

He debuted a little while after Batista left and he looked just like him (outside of the tattoos).

He was jacked up, had a beard and if you just took a quick glance at him he looked just like Batista.
