Is there any greater injustice in WWE then the part-timers coming back for big money season and main eventing in WWE? Or is the great injustice the fact that WWE has to use the part-timers in matches, often against each other, because of the state of the roster?

Either way, it sounds like this is a job for The Shield.

The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H, or even Brock Lesnar, are all options for The Shield.

WWE needs an established legendary name to work with three young stars of the future that would be logically explained in storyline.

It sounds too easy to be attempted, but let's indulge in the idea for a minute and get our hopes up.

I'll take The Undertaker out of the fold first because the undefeated streak provides the justification for his opponents to be main event level stars.

Brock Lesnar is a heel, so I'll take him out of the mix too. But The Rock and Triple H provide interesting options though.

The Rock will return to the ring in January at Royal Rumble, likely against CM Punk. We don't know if The Shield will still be getting linked to CM Punk at that point, but if they are, there is obvious opening for conflict with The Rock to begin. In addition, they can harp on the injustice of The Rock leaving wrestling for Hollywood and coming back for big money matches.

Another interesting match to imagine would be a conflict between The Shield and The Rock.

The Shield member Roman Reigns in related to The Rock. The Rock isn't going to take on The Shield by himself, so what's John Cena doing for WrestleMania? The Rock and John Cena teamed up together before.

WWE will be able to bill and sell tickets with Cena and The Rock together in the same match. The ability for a big time rub to these three NXT stars who WWE seems to have high hopes for is enormous.

I'm not suggesting that it should or would happen, but just to evoke thought, entertainment and comments on this column, dare we think of John Cena turning on The Rock in the middle of WrestleMania in favor of The Shield?

You're probably more likely to see all of this on your video game, but its fun to think about.

Then there is Triple H.

In addition to being “The Game,” he is recognized as having power and being the future leader of the company.

A script for injustice, the welfare of the company and the rights and wrongs involving Triple H provides options galore.

The biggest injustice of all would be if The Shield isn't furthered and put over at WrestleMania.
