The Shield is currently undefeated as a group in the WWE, which includes matches against the top stars of the company. Eventually, the group’s run is going to end.
When it does, the Superstar who is responsible is going to deserve a push or already be a main event star.
Who will be the lucky star?
Could it be someone like John Cena, who has a history of ending heel factions? Or someone managed by Paul Heyman, who has been linked to The Shield in the past?
Here, I will break down the five WWE Superstars who have the best chance to end The Shield’s run and undefeated streak.
Believe it or not, but The Shield’s match at WrestleMania with the Celtic Vipers and Big Show is not official yet, according to WWE.com’s WrestleMania match list.
Regardless, it seems inevitable that Big Show will join Randy Orton and Sheamus against Ambrose, Rollins and Reigns. While Sheamus and Orton have been feuding with The Shield for a couple of months now, Big Show’s issues with the group have only recently begun.
Big Show was a monster heel until he accidentally got involved with The Shield’s attack of Orton and Sheamus. Now, slowly, Big Show has begun to turn to the good side, but not completely. He still can’t get along with the Celtic Vipers, but the World’s Largest Athlete is still focused on ending The Shield’s run.
Whether or not CM Punk is the man to end The Undertaker’s streak, he could focus on ending another streak after WrestleMania 29.
CM Punk is also managed by Paul Heyman. Therefore, the setup to feud with The Shield could be similar to that of Brock Lesnar. Heyman could choose to lead The Shield against Punk. This could also lead to a CM Punk-Brock Lesnar match that many WWE fans would enjoy.
The Undertaker’s streak is one that has lasted many years, but The Shield’s streak is a more realistic one for CM Punk to end.
Brock Lesnar is about to finish his feud with Triple H at WrestleMania 29, but he is signed to WWE for two more years. Perhaps his next feud will be against The Shield.
Lesnar’s manager, Paul Heyman, has been linked to The Shield in the past, which may make one question how Lesnar would be pitted against the group.
The most logical situation would see Heyman turn on Lesnar and lead The Shield, as was expected for a while.
It wouldn’t be the first time Heyman turned on Lesnar, which would be interesting. Why would Lesnar trust Heyman again?
With Lesnar as a powerhouse type of Superstar, he could be the one to end The Shield’s run without Heyman in his corner.
After John Cena wins the WWE title at WrestleMania 29, perhaps his feud with The Shield will reignite.
Cena was involved in a six-man tag match at Elimination Chamber 2013 against The Shield, but he had to move away from that feud in order to face The Rock for the WWE title.
Cena would make a ton of sense to end The Shield’s run, as he has done it to a group before in WWE.
John Cena can be credited for ending Nexus’ huge run at the end of 2010. After Cena defeated Wade Barrett at WWE TLC 2010, Nexus chose CM Punk as its new leader. This change in management was the beginning of the end for Nexus.
Can John Cena begin a feud with Ambrose, Rollins or Reigns that ultimately spells the end for The Shield?
As discussed earlier, Triple H and Brock Lesnar are going to be ending their feud (hopefully) at WrestleMania 29.
Depending on the outcome, Triple H may or may not be retiring. If WWE and Triple H decide to continue his wrestling career, The Shield would be a logical next opponent for the COO.
The Shield could very easily play a part in Triple H’s match with Lesnar. The Shield and Lesnar are linked to Paul Heyman. With the No Holds Barred stipulation, The Shield could get involved.
Even if The Shield do not help Lesnar against Triple H at WrestleMania, The Shield could still attack Triple H for all of the injustice he is responsible for as the COO.
Chances are that Triple H wouldn’t mind giving himself the honor of ending The Shield’s run.
Who do you think will end The Shield’s run? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
