Roman Reigns is the enforcer for The Shield.

The group, which debuted at Survivor Series, consists of Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Ambrose and Rollins are more than ready to join the main roster based on their successful runs at NXT.

Is Roman Reigns ready for the WWE’s main roster?

Reigns and his teammates haven't done much in the WWE. The only exception is their TLC war against Team Hell No and Ryback.

Other than that, not much can be said about Reigns.

He hardly talks, letting Ambrose and Rollins cut the promos. His only move set consists of the powerbomb and spear.

The philosophy for Reigns seems to be “less is more.” It’s the right move for The Shield’s big man.

Ambrose and Rollins are the more complete guys in their wrestling ability. Ambrose personifies the total package of a wrestler, while Rollins has great wrestling skills.

Reigns is a man who doesn’t need to show everything that he can bring to the table. Not yet.

He has the size and the look the WWE wants. He’s a big guy who carries himself as a force to be reckoned with.

WWE.com bills Reigns at 6’3” and 265 pounds. Reigns is all muscle and isn’t afraid to throw his weight around.

Reigns, son of WWE Hall of Famer Sika of the Wild Samoans, also has the business in his blood. He comes from a lineage of wrestlers that includes Rikishi and Yokozuna.

He gives The Shield “bite” to all of its “bark.” This is the same man who powerbombed Ryback on multiple occasions. This is the same man who tackled Kane through the barricade at TLC.

Reigns is more than ready for the main roster. His ability and raw strength prove it.

It’s only a matter of time before Reigns becomes the total package. If he lives up to his potential, he’ll be more than ready to become a driving force in the WWE’s future.
