The Shield looks fantastic with just three members, but that doesn't mean it won't grow.
Ever since the NXT trio debuted at Survivor Series, there has been a lot of speculation that at least one, if not more than one, member will be added to the group.
While The Shield doesn't necessarily "need" more members, the WWE's "more is better" attitude may make it happen anyway.
Could it be an established veteran that steps up as the faction's leader, or could it be another NXT star who joins The Shield's quest to take over the WWE?
Of course, it may end up being no one at all, but should the WWE go that route, there's no shortage of potential candidates to join the group.
Here are 7 potential candidates for The Shield's fourth member.
