The Shield's reunion might have been one of the greatest moments of 2017, but it was quickly derailed by poor booking practices, constant changes to the original identity, viral infections, and now a shoulder injury to Dean Ambrose could leave The Lunatic Fringe out for months.

Of course, that means WWE is either going to have to break The Shield up and have the two remaining Superstars go their separate ways, or find a replacement for Dean Ambrose while he recovers. With that being said and the rumour of Jason Jordan being the one to take that role on, here are five much better options for WWE to pursue.


#5 Bray Wyatt

Bray Wyatt hasn't had a feud of note this year
Bray Wyatt hasn't had a feud of note this year

Let's be honest here, Bray Wyatt has continuously slid down the card ever since losing his WWE title match at WrestleMania 33, and while Wyatt has had a few victories after that, they pale in comparison to the losses he has taken. With that being said, and the likelihood of him losing to "Woken" Matt Hardy in mind, it's pretty obvious he needs a big change here.

What WWE need to do here is end Wyatt's feud with Matt Hardy early, which would probably result in the freeing of Sister Abigail from Wyatt's body, and turn Wyatt babyface after the feud. How WWE accomplishes that is up to them, but they could explain that Sister Abigail was the one making him evil and break the hold she has on him during the feud.

Not only would this idea be a great way to boost The Shield right now, especially since it gives them a once in a lifetime opportunity to join forces and fight alongside Bray Wyatt, it also saves Wyatt from falling further down the card. In the end, it also gives The Shield an extra edge to them that will be very fun to watch for wrestling fans.
