- The feeling is that when Roman Reigns turns babyface and splits from The Shield, likely in February, that he will be replaced with a new member in the group. Mason Ryan's name has been discussed. - source NoDQ
Honestly, I don't hate the idea. One generic WWE prototype guy leaves, another generic WWE prototype guy joins. It's a wash. Also, it gives Reigns someone else to run through instead of destroying Ambrose who I believe needs to be a bit more protected by the booking team.
