Next Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017, SmackDown Live gets their turn in the pay-per-view spotlight with Hell In A Cell in Detroit, Michigan. Then, two weeks after that, it is Raw’s turn to shine in Minneapolis, Minnesota with TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. And although no matches have been announced yet, one match that many people have assumed would be happening is The Miztourage vs. The Shield. But, that may not be the case.
On Raw this week, The Miz will be defending his Intercontinental Championship title against Roman Reigns and it is widely assumed that Reigns’ former Shield partners—and current tag team champions—will intervene in some way during the match (presumably to help Reigns). From that, it would make sense that it would lead to The Miz and his Miztourage (Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel) feuding with The Shield leading to a match at TLC.
However, while that may be the current assumption, Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet says that a Miztourage/Shield fight at TLC is not set in stone, and The Miztourage may just be the ones that bring the Shield back together.That might not spark a feud that continues to Tables, Ladders & Chairs, however. Although, there is no information as to who The Shield would face at TLC if it isn't The Miztourage.
Sources tell us The Miztourage being their opponents is NOT set in stone at this point. Sounds like they may just be who brings them back. https://t.co/nxqfb9nuT0— Ryan Satin (@ryansatin) September 26, 2017
The Shield broke up about three years ago when Seth Rollins turned on his two friends with the help of a steel chair and a selfish desire to be a champion on his own. Since then, the three members have gone on to all hold the Championship Belt on their own at different times, but the desire for a Shield reunion is something that the WWE universe has been clamoring for pretty much since the moment they broke up.

Wrestling News is also pointing out that the WWE is hoping to use the huge fan support for a Shield reunion to help keep Raw ratings up against the strength of Monday Night Football and increase the chances of selling out the upcoming Tables, Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view in three weeks.
