WWE raised a few eyebrows last week by breaking up The Shield. Some called the move premature, but after watching the most recent episode of Raw, it seems the breakup could benefit all involved.

Here are five reasons why splitting up The Shield was the right call:

The Original Shield

The original Shield was great. You knew every time they came to the ring, something special was about to happen. Now, it's just more spread out. Reigns and Ambrose can do their babyface thing, while Rollins does his heel thing. It ultimately places more talent in more spots across shows, which is a good thing. Instead of just one or two Shield segments, now there will be at least two and maybe three.

Rollins proved on his first episode of Raw as a solo heel that he has what it takes to be successful. Maybe he's not the ideal bad guy, but he's talented enough to make it work. His first heel promo was spot on and he seems to already be feeling his way into a groove with his new character. Plus, he can always turn back if its not working.

Even though it sucks that the original Shield is done, another member can always be added. It appears Ambrose and Reigns will just be doing there own thing in the near future, but the addition of another member can't be ruled out. If the right guy is chosen, the new Shield could even be better.

Ambrose and Rollins appear to be headed for some singles matches in the near future. Those bouts are sure to tear the house down, as both guys are great workers. Eventually you have to think Reigns will get in the mix as well. Either way, great grudge matches are coming to your living room at MITB and possibly through SummerSlam.

The writing is on the wall. Eventually Ambrose will turn on Reigns and go off on his own. This will leave Reigns as the sole babyface, which is exactly what WWE wants. It has to happen at some point, but hopefully the two-member Shield makes it through the summer. There's no reason to completely implode the group at this point in time.
