Roman Reigns on potential plans for The Shield in the Royal Rumble

So about The Shield in the Royal Rumble this year...

Although WWE has yet to officially announce their participation in the match, it is expected that Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Dean Ambrose, the collective known as The Shield, will be involved in the Royal Rumble match scheduled for the pay-per-view (PPV) of the same name on Sun., Jan. 26, 2014, at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

They would join this list of official entrants.

Assuming they get in, though, what are some potential plans for them? Reigns recently talked to the folks at Busted Open Radio on SiriusXM 92 and had this to say when asked if he were to find himself in there with his comrades:

"Oh that's simple. We're all in there together. Nothing changes for us. It's business as usual. We're gonna eliminate everybody and we're going to do it with the most efficient teamwork possible. And then once we get to where it's us three we're gonna have to figure that out then. The gloves may come off or maybe we'll make a stand. Maybe we'll do something no one's ever done before. We walk out of that sucker; who knows? That's gonna have to be up to everybody to tune in and pay attention. Cause we're gonna put on a good show."

That's an intriguing proposition, unlikely as it may be to ever come to fruition. It's far more likely that the Rumble is used to advance the growing story that Reigns is the dominant member of the group who is poised to break out on his own as a major singles star.

Speaking of which, there's been a lot of talk that he could be the new face of the company by the end of 2014. His thoughts on that?

"I don't know about the 'face' of the company. That's kind of being used right now. I'd like to come up with something a little more fresh. You know Randy Orton is doing that whole 'face' of the company thing. I think I'm better than him so if we can get a one upper situation, that's... maybe the 'backbone' of the company. Maybe the 'balls' of the company. Something cool like that, you know? I don't know about the 'face' of the company. Maybe the 'man' of the company. That sounds about right."

Will you believe if Roman eventually reigns over WWE? And how would you like to see The Shield used in the Rumble?
