With the Shield reunion pretty much confirmed, here are the best matchups for them. The Shield reunion is happening people! Remain calm! OK, it hasn't been confirmed yet but it's all but certain following the closing shot of last Monday's Raw. All three members of the former faction stood side by side in the locker room, all wronged by the same wrestlers, no words needed just some reassuring, mutual nodding. It's the reunion that the WWE Universe has been waiting on the edge of their seats for, plus it's a surefire way to get Roman Reigns back in their good books. It's a win-win for everyone, right? With other plans in the pipeline for Reigns at WrestleMania 34, it's likely that the reunion won't last long, but maybe that's a good thing. In the meantime, there's plenty for Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, and Dean Ambrose to do in the few months that they'll likely be reunited.
The Miz, Sheamus, and Cesaro
Following No Mercy, The Miz and Roman Reigns' paths have drastically changed direction and managed to cross with one another. The Intercontinental Champion requested The Big Dog as a guest on Miz TV, and he got his way. That request led to the two quickly realizing that they simply don't like each other. Elsewhere on Raw, the brand's Tag Team Champions are embroiled in a rivalry with Sheamus and Cesaro. The Europeans are the ones who Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose took the titles from after all. With all of that in mind, what better way than to get The Shield back together again than to force them all on to common ground? This past week on Raw, Sheamus and Cesaro inexplicably decided to assist Miz in beating down Roman Reigns, so now John Cena's conqueror has a reason to side with his former brothers.

The Miz pairing up with Sheamus and Cesaro is being done for another reason rather than just a shortcut to get Reigns, Rollins, and Ambrose on the same page. As of last week, it looked like The Shield's biggest foes were going to be The Miztourage. No offense to Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, but that match doesn't exactly scream big time. Either at TLC or Survivor Series, The Shield will likely take on The Miz, Sheamus, and Cesaro, that's the pay-per-view caliber match. In 2017, we the fan don't like waiting for anything though, so we'll need to see The Shield flex their muscles before then. Expect a match between the fan favorites and The Miztourage on Raw one week soon just to give us a taste of what to expect for their big pay-per-view return.
Let's say that The Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro fall victim to The Shield at TLC. It's the next Raw pay-per-view, so it's extremely likely. Shortly after that, both the Raw and SmackDown Live rosters will be heading to Houston for Survivor Series. If the event is anything like last year's show, then it will revolve around the stars of Monday night being pitted against those on Tuesdays. If so, then what better match than a six-man bout between The Shield and New Day? Both teams will likely still be their respective brand's champions by that point, plus New Day's performances as of late have more than earned them that spot. If WWE deems it necessary, they can throw in two more stars on each team to make it a traditional Survivor Series bout, but it really wouldn't need that.
The Wyatt Family
There is a very strong likelihood that once Rollins, Ambrose, and Reigns have taken care of The Miz's pesky antics and all his helpers that they will then shake hands and once again go their separate ways. There is also a very real chance that won't happen, not straight away anyway. Last week on Raw, WWE made a return to the recurring intrigue that is Sister Abigail. We all believed that Randy Orton laid the source of Bray Wyatt's mystical powers to rest earlier this year, but apparently not. With Sister Abigail by his side, who knows the force that Wyatt may become, and who knows who might realign themselves with The Eater of Worlds. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan may rejoin forces with Wyatt, and we all know that those three men can be relied upon to have great matches with The Shield.
Let's be honest, there's really only one trio that we want to see The Shield face during their upcoming reunion, and that's these guys. Yes, we've seen a version of The Club already manifest in WWE, but it was nothing much to write home about. Plus they came and went in those three baron years without The Shield as a unit in WWE. Once we've seen Roman and friends tear through all of the above, then how great would it be to see Finn Balor turn heel and reunite with his former New Japan brothers? If you ask us, this should be the match Reigns is booked in for WrestleMania, not the oh so predictable rematch with Brock Lesnar.
