-- It's no secret that former Shield member Roman Reigns is being groomed to be the eventual "Face of WWE."

WWE is currently plotting Reigns' rise to the top of the mountain, with Daniel Bryan's current hiatus playing a factor. While Reigns is still being protected and is being built up slowly, his push is now being accelerated faster than originally planned.

Following the recent breakup of The Shield, Reigns will continue working with former Evolution members Randy Orton and TripleH. As we reported last month, Reigns is scheduled to face Randy Orton at SummerSlam before moving on to a program with Triple H.

It's possible we'll see Reigns feud with Seth Rollins this fall and he's already an early favorite to win the 2015 Royal Rumble.
