The Shield could be set for a shock reunion if recent reports are to be believed.

As reported by the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is strongly considering ending the feud between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns after questioning themselves over the decision to dissolve the group earlier this year.

Fan Favorites

The trio of stars burst onto the WWE scene in 2012 claiming to be in pursuit of justice and quickly became firm fans favorites with the WWE faithful as they took it upon themselves to challenge a host of star heels.

Their successful run however was brought to a premature end with the shock decision by the WWE hierarchy to create a feud between Rollins and the other two founding members. This occurred June 2 when Rollins, under Triple H's orders, turned on his allies with a steel chair.

Since then all three superstars have begun their own separate paths in the WWE with Reigns most recently challenging for the Heavyweight Title at Money in the Bank which was eventually won by John Cena.

Back Track

However, it seems that the WWE's head honchos may be back tracking a little on their decision to split a potentially lucrative trio.

The idea, as has been mooted, seems to be for The Shield to remain on their individual paths before reuniting in 2015 for a brief period of time. This would then serve as the blueprint for a similar scenario to be played out year on year as a way to keep the brand alive.

As well as having added merchandising value for the WWE, those in charge clearly feel that there could be a legacy created here akin to the DX team's longevity as a collective.

Immediate Future

At present however it looks like the WWE will continue to promote Roman Reigns as one of the rising superstars in the organization with the obvious hope of building him up to be future title holder.

It will be interesting to see whether the WWE makes it so that if the currently cold relationship between Rollins and the others thaws over time however in order to facilitate a future reunion.
