When Mason Ryan first appeared, the Spanish announcers actually called him "Batista 2."

Mason has switched up his look since he disappeared after Nexus 2.


I don't think he'd get any Batista chants now.

Still, I think that there's no reason to messing around with the Shield members. The longer the team sticks together as heels, the bigger the switch becomes. The Shield need to have another run with the TTC.

Ryan has improved a great deal on NXT, so is probably deserving of a second chance, and working in a smaller group would probably help him a great deal.

I agree with the notion the Shield needs to stay as a group for a while longer yet. If they want to turn Reigns face to see if he sinks or swims then they need someone else in the group before he leaves not after he turns as it's a feud setup instantly with him feuding with his old mates.

Yeah see I think the only way the move of Roman Reigns going on his own becomes tolerable is if he is kicked out and replaced by someone Rollins and Ambrose claim is a better fit, and Ambrose and Rollins become tag champs beforehand.

Then following that to help Reigns get some momentum back after getting kicked out and replaced, they can have Ambrose drop the us title to Reigns.

Not only that, but there needs to be a rule in creative that Shield doesn't change ever again, unless it is to drop the replacement guy to re-add Reigns. Just stop fucking with the Shield's roster.

I would much rather see The Shield turn face and start feuding with The Authority and The Wyatts.

Changing the Shield is a fucking stupid idea. These are three guys that came out of nowhere to run over all of WWE's top stars, and you want to change it up to put in a guy who was CM Punk's lackey two years ago, before Punk was a top star? Come on. They should absolutely break up, around Summerslam time, possibly the PPV after. Do it Evolution-style, but without the burial. Reigns wins himself a #1 contenders match, Ambrose (still US champion) costs him the gold, bam, there's your new US title feud. Rollins can go either way, but preferably he'd side with Ambrose and they'd go on to tag together while Reigns has a US title run that actually matters, if that's possible any more.

The Shield should stay the same, or it should end. There hasn't been a stable this good since Evolution (no, The Wyatts don't count, it's not a stable as much as Bray Wyatt and friends), you don't fuck with it. The Nexus changed up their roster too many times, and it fizzled in to nothing. The Shield don't need to become the new New Nexus.

Id rather them break up and just be knwn as a faction that had no weak link and top to bottom everyone was amazing, thqn them muddy it up with mason. He has a good look, but hes not half the talent reigns is.

The Shield have become one of my favorite things about the 'E today. I wish I could've been tuning in whenever they had first debuted and followed all their antics but I certainly love all that I see. It's inevitable but I'm going to be so sad when they break up.  I really hope that the rumors of Mason getting considered as a replacement/new member are false. I want the Shield to be remembered for those three only. For after they break up, it's kind of hard to tell what they'll do. I know Reigns is slated for a huge push but I really want to see a bright future for Rollins and Ambrose as well.

Ambrose proved this last Monday night why he is the one with the most polish. The guy is a natural on the mic.

Agreed! I have to say he's my favorite of the bunch. Good talker and worker. I really need to check out more of his indy work. Love me some Rollins and Reigns too but there's something different about Ambrose.

In my humble opinion, Ambrose right now is what Orton right now should be. A completely manipulative, unpredictable, entertaining son of a b****, where you never know if he won´t take you out right now with something you didn´t even see coming. Orton is boring, mostly. 

I can see why they want to push Reigns, the dude´s a freaking monster. However, I fear that he would sink when it comes to singles mic work. He may have some linguistic qualities he´s withheld so far though... who knows.

Rollins, imo is the most spectacular worker of the three, he is technically sound, he is quick like a hiccup and he can do the high flyin´ as well if needed. Also, he´s definately the second of the guys when it comes to the microphone, right after Ambrose. I can see him go far eventually... I would also like to see a feud between Ambrose and ROllins over the US Title, if it comes to one of them changing alignment....

Agreed, Ambrose has the potential to be a top heel. He's just got that look and mannerisms. I've watched some of his CZW stuff and he's just off the wall. He's got a Joker-esque feel to him but he's really spectacular at that type of character. He always makes me smile every time he's on screen. I really want to see that feud with him and Punk ignite.

Reigns is certainly a beast. His superman punch is so awesome. Like you said though, where he gains in power, the others have more experience in the ring and promo work. I think he'll get there though but I don't think he's ready for that massive push yet.

Rollins has got some serious technique to him. You have to love that ninja roll his does during the entrance. Like Ambrose, I need to watch his indy work more. I do know Rollins and Ambrose had an excellent feud in FCW. I've watched a couple of their matches and the chemistry is awesome.

It's kind of hard to tell if they're going to all go their separate ways or a two remain together. Rollins hovers between the two like a peacemaker so they make keep him with Reigns. They were tag champs together so the bond is there. We'll see how it goes.
