It is well known that Dean Ambrose will be leaving the WWE after WrestleMania this year following the expiration of his contract.
Where or not you believe it's real or storyline, WWE doesn't have The Lunatic Fringe advertised for many shows, if any at all, after this year's Showcase of the Immortals, but they do have The Shield advertised for shows.
Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins have been advertised as The Hounds of Justice in a triple threat match at several shows during WWE's European tour after WrestleMania in matches vs Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, and Bobby Lashley.
In order to make these matches an even six-man tag team match, one superstar will be made an honorary member of The Shield for the bouts.
According to Wrestling Inc, Braun Strowman will fight alongside Reigns and Rollins vs McIntyre, Corbin, and Lashley as an honorary member of The Hounds of Justice.

WWE fans that have been following The Shield over the years will know that this isn't the first time which a superstar has become an honorary member of the iconic stable.
Kurt Angle was an honorary member of The Shield at TLC in 2017 as Reigns was forced to miss the show due to an illness.
At a live event a few weeks later, Triple H became an honorary member of The Shield for the same reasons.
As we know, WWE cards are always subject to change, but if Ambrose does end up leaving the company, it is unlikely that Strowman becomes his full-time replacement in The Shield.
It's unclear as well as to how much longer WWE wants the current storyline with The Hounds of Justice to go, as the company has always viewed the group as three singles stars.
With Rollins expected to capture the Universal Championship at WrestleMania as well, it's quite possible that these shows currently advertised could be the last time we see The Shield together as a group, original members or not, for some time.
