Update on John Cena’s Eye Injury, WWE Looks at Potential New Members of The Shield

– WWE’s website has a new article up with the editors looking at potential third members for The Shield now that Seth Rollins turned on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. They listed Adrian Neville, Big E, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, John Morrison and Daniel Bryan as potential replacements. They wrote the following about Morrison, the only one named that is not currently signed to WWE:

“Now, listen. If you lose a high-flyer, you’d better grab one to replace him and no WWE Superstar adheres as closely to the Seth Rollins blueprint as John Morrison. The WWE Universe went gaga for Rollins’ aerial tactics throughout The Shield’s dominant run, but The Prince of Parkour was scaling structures and confounding opponents long before The Architect threw on his Kevlar. Granted, it’s hard to tell if the former Intercontinental Champion’s mindset — to say nothing of his sartorial tendencies — would exactly adhere to the aesthetic of The Shield (though we’d pay good money to see Roman Reigns in a chinchilla coat). But the in-ring transition would be smooth, and might even be an improvement in some places. Rollins was big on self-sacrifice — a younger, lither Mick Foley who swapped a button-down for bulletproof. Morrison, with his kicks that flowed like rubber but hit like rock, was efficient without taking too much out of himself. There’s no doubt that his inclusion in The Hounds of Justice could well make Rollins and The Authority eat their lunch, or at least their words.”

– John Cena barely wrestled at Sunday night’s WWE live event in Rochester, Minnesota. He teamed with The Usos to defeat The Wyatt Family. Cena only came in only at the end of the match, hitting his signature moves and getting the pin on Bray Wyatt. Cena’s eye is still swollen completely shut.
