WWE: Which Member of the Shield Has the Most Potential?

John Nizinski@@jniz73Analyst IIIFebruary 28, 2013


A few months ago, a group called The Shield took the WWE by storm. They are made up of three members: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.

The impressive trio has made a huge impact and the sky is the limit for them. However, as all WWE factions do, they will split up one day.

So when the Shield does eventually break up, which member has the most potential? Which of the three young Superstars will have the best career and have the most success in the future?

When the group first appeared in the WWE, the member that most people knew about was Ambrose. He made a nice name for himself in the independent promotions and was also seen in an altercation with Mick Foley outside of a hotel at WrestleMania 28.

Ambrose seemed to be the leader of the group at first and he would easily have the most success. However, the more we have seen of the group, the more we have seen just how special each Superstar is.

Initially, Reigns felt like the typical muscle of the group. He has a deep voice and didn't appear to have great mic skills. Another issue might have been that most larger superstars are stiff in the ring.

However, the more we have got to see of Reigns, the more we can see that is not the case. Reigns is able to hold his own in the promos and is extremely athletic inside the squared circle.

His recent work with Sheamus in the six-man tag team matches have left fans excited for a potential singles match between the two. 

Rollins has also proven that he can handle himself with a microphone in hand and inside the ring.

From what we have seen, Rollins has a high motor and keeps a high pace in his matches. He also seems to be creative and innovative with his moves.

He has some high flying ability, which is always exciting for the fans.

Ambrose comes off as a perfect heel. Reigns and Rollins could both be turned face when the group splits up, but I think Rollins will be the first to change over to a face.

Personally I think Reigns will have the best WWE career. His size and athleticism puts him in a perfect position to thrive in the business. He is a former Canadian league football player and cousin of the Rock.

It also feels like the more time Reigns is given on the microphone and in promos, the more ability and personality he has.

So what is your opinion?
