Just how high could each of the three members climb in the next year? You never know.

    I think Reigns and Bray Wyatt are fantastic but agree that they have a way to go before they reach greatness; they are both impact players right now and we will find out in time if they are capable of capturing the attention of fans in one one one action. Reigns showed potential against CM Punk and Wyatt had a brilliant encounter with Daniel Bryan, but that is all i can recall from both. Wyatt will have his chance to shine at WrestleMania XXX of course against Cena. I am really excited for that match. If Evolution is an over-sight, maybe even Reigns vs HHH at SummerSlam?

    I like your idea of one of the Shield having the MITB briefcase. That would add yet another layer and would be the ultimate tease of tension and eventual break-up.

    I am not sure where Lesnar would fit in. After Taker who would be next? Batista will self destruct before then; with those tight jeans cutting off his circulation. I look at the roster and can't find a viable feud for Lesnar. Maybe Punk returns for a Summerslam rematch....now that is fantasy booking haha
    I think the way to go with Lesnar would be give him the title shot he wants in the storyline and have him face Bryan for the title; gives him something big and builds on Bryan's reputation as the ultimate underdog.

    Reigns vs Triple H has potential; I believe it was being mooted as an alternative when CM Punk walked out before they settled on the path they're on now. It would work well because Triple H could lead him through the match like Punk did; if of course his ego doesn't get in the way.

    The potential of The Shield, both as a whole and individually, is limitless if handled correctly; just hope one of them doesn't get lost in the aftermath because it would be a real shame.

    As for Punk; God I hope they tempt him back soon. Whatever the rights and wrongs of his walkout (and I think he was right; he made a stand for his principles. WWE would be in real trouble if more talent could afford to do so) I feel the show is missing a big piece of the puzzle in his absence.

    Well now some time has passed and the road still sucks! I support your ascertion that the talent pool sucks...from their own doing, however! I wrote over 2 yrs ago there were no surprises, due to poor plans and internet spoilers. Their attempt at surprises were old actor/wrestlers in Main Events and winning titles.

    Nothing big to look forward to, unless STING interrupts Taker's match

    WWE has become their own worst enemy, using part time, old and washed up wrasslers to win titles and Main Event PPV. They have failed to create and promote new and younger talent in a sustainable manner. The wasted chances with Ryback, Ziggler, Cesaro and Daniel Bryan in favor of promoting their name and company by having the tired-assed Rock and his catch phrases come out of retirement and take spots from other guys...repeated now by Bautista. Talent performs day-in-day-out and gets replaced by these guys...Taker ( wrestles a couple of times a year)...with predictable outcomes. Then Dusty's spawn and Old Aged Outlaws win titles! Cena, Michaels, HHH, Rock and Austin were middle of the road, mid-card guys that chances were given to...they established themselves...developed credibility and eventual gold and glory! Time to move on...out with the old, in with the new!

    Based on how they have been being used...feud with Kane and apparently the Heel Americans, Old Aged Outlaws and Roid-A$$hole...they will remain together a while. This will lead to a clash with the Authority and eventually some faction involving HHH, Bautista, Orton and maybe Flair!

    Yeah i know how you feel; I've had 4 Blogs unpublished. The Shield are far too pivotal on RAW to separate them now. They have so much to offer as a face group; as you said possibly aligning themselves with Vince to start an uprising against The Authority. On one of my neglected posts i had written about Summerslam and the card i would like to see. I think that with The Shield taking on the Authority and Batista and Orton inevitably leaving the title scene due to their mundane characters. Why not build towards HHH re-assembling Evolution and have a very high profile match at the 2nd biggest event of the year: The Shield vs Evolution. This could be the moment where Reigns is betrayed by Rollins and Ambrose. What do you think? You think that would be a possibility?
    It's an interesting thought; especially as they need to find something for Batista and Orton to do. If reports are true about WWE having plans to use Ric Flair some more, based on them registering his name as a trademark, then you could have Flair managing Evolution with Vince in The Shield's corner to give it some extra intrigue. But even then I feel that would be too soon to break up The Shield; they were popular as heels so imagine how popular they would become as faces with a major push and the WWE machine behind them.

    In an ideal world (or at least my fantasy booking) I'd like to see a one of The Shield (let's say Reigns) take the title at a major event like Summerslam while another member holds the Money In The Bank contract. Then it would make the break up mean a lot more; especially if it's unclear where the third man sits in all this. Is he for the champion or does he feel the member who got the title is too big for their boots and needs showing. I thought the most interesting part of the teased breakup was how Seth Rollins reacted; it provided an interesting dynamic. To me it could be like when Evolution turned on Orton; only bigger because they wouldn't have to satisfy Triple H's ego this time around.

    But I have to cautiously say I don't think Reigns, or Bray Wyatt for that matter, are quite there yet in match quality; the singles match between the two on Raw wasn't great in my opinion. They've both taken part in great matches but that was against better and more experienced opposition; at least the elongated face run would give Reigns the chance to improve more before being thrust into the spotlight. Don't get me wrong; I think he could be a huge star. But push him too soon it could damage him in the long run.

    But your match idea has money written all over it; though whether it could garner the reaction of The Shield vs The Wyatts I'm unsure. But it all depends on how much WWE put into it; and given that Triple H would be involved then it's likely to get everything behind it. The only stumbling block in my opinion is Brock Lesnar; traditionally Summerslam is where they wheel him out again to boost the buy rate. Recent rumours have alluded to Batista vs Lesnar this year; but that was when they thought Batista's comeback wasn't going to be received in the way it was.

    So, to sum it up, I think it's a great idea; but can WWE hold course with a long term booking plan like that in this day and age is the question. I hope they can; but recent evidence says no.
