As the strongest trio currently in the WWE, The Shield take part in a battle of the generations against Kane and The New Age Outlaws at WrestleMania XXX this Sunday.

Undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with, the group - which comprises of Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose - have been part of some extremely big matches together.

At last year's WrestleMania, The Shield stamped their authority on the might of the Big Show, Randy Orton and Sheamus in a six-man tag match. 

This win clearly proved the capabilities of the three men together, but who could succeed as the most successful individual?

In November 2012, The Shield made their debut by performing an attack on Ryback - despite looking like three members of security - in the defence of CM Punk.

From then on, the most vocal and therefore seemingly the leader of the group was Ambrose. Now, however, despite currently being the United States Champion, he appears to be the least prominent group member. 

Last year Ambrose made his singles debut against the might of The Undertaker, a match which he lost via submission. He was however able to overcome Undertaker's brother - Kane - on an episode of Smackdown some weeks later.

There have been a lot of rumours circulating about the idea of Roman Reigns being part of the main event at WrestleMania 31, with WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross saying Reigns could be the World Champion by that time.

Reigns has emerged as the more vocal member of The Shield lately, as well as impressing many during Survival Series and in the Royal Rumble by setting the record for most eliminations in a single Rumble with 12. 

28-year-old Reigns eliminated both of his fellow members of The Shield and eventually became runner-up in the match after being eliminated by eventual winner Batista.

For the time being though, the focus lies with Rollins, the first-ever NXT Champion who stood out when The Shield switched to WWE.

Rollins certainly made his mark at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view in a match against The Wyatt Family. Performing a series of extremely risky moves, his elite technical ability has done wonders for enhancing his dominance as The Shield's leading member.

Rollins also impressed at the Royal Rumble. Having been the second entrant into the match, he managed to achieve the second longest time behind Punk.

Whoever the leading singular member of The Shield is classed to be, there is no question of the impact they have had as a trio having been billed against several of the biggest names in WWE.

Although they have only been part of the industry for 18 months, we are certain to see plenty more in the future from these rising stars.
