The possibility of The Shield breaking up anytime soon has been taken off the table creatively, reports The Wrestling Observer. The trio was supposed to have split up by now, according to the new report, had WWE gone with their original plans when they started teasing it several months ago. WWE Creative is not discussing the idea at all right now, and it's being said that WWE management wants to keep together for a while going forward.
In other WWE Creative news, The Observer is reporting that, as of now, WWE is looking at John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro and Sheamus as the top four babyfaces in the company moving forward. We had previously reported that Cena and Bryan were being viewed as #1 and #2, but Cesaro and Sheamus have now been added to the list.
The last time a list was made internally, it supposedly had Randy Orton, Batista and Roman Reigns near the top, right behind Cena and Bryan. With Batista's return going much differently than expected and Reigns remaining a member of The Shield, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Cesaro and Sheamus took their place.
