5 burning questions we have after WWE Survivor Series 2017
I think it's fair to say that after all the hype leading up to the event, Survivor Series lived up to expectations and then some.
No match on the show seemed to drag and, quite surprisingly, the audience that usually zones out during extended WWE PPVs kept the interest levels up right until the very end.
Now, Raw may have pipped SmackDown Live courtesy a screwy finish to the men's 5 on 5 Elimination match and some of the other results may have been quite predictable, but that still doesn't take away from a solid showing overall.
But why did things turn out the way they did? Is this the last we've seen of the Shield? What can we expect Triple H's role to be in the coming weeks?
There are still a few questions that need addressing after the pay-per-view and that's exactly what this article is about.
So, without further ado, here are 5 burning questions that we have after WWE Survivor Series 2017.
#1 Is the Shield going to split?
Short answer, yes.
First off, The Shield wasn't reformed to give the fans a genuine nostalgia trip like DX, the Brothers of Destruction or other such teams of lore did as and when they would reunite.
The Shield was reformed for a single reason, and that was to get Roman Reigns over by association.
Almost everything major going on in the WWE today is geared towards project Roman Reigns and making damn sure that he isn't booed out of the stadium when he defeats Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34.
Will it work?
Well, it certainly seems to have improved the situation as the audience has warmed to the dude a little bit.
But continuing with The Shield storyline after a point only hinders Roman's singles push to the stratosphere and the WWE can't have that.
So while the payoff for The Shield's reunion was extended till Survivor Series after Roman couldn't make it to TLC, I do certainly expect Rollins and Ambrose to pick up where they left off in pursuit of the Raw Tag Team Championships and Reigns to move on by himself.
