From the WWE Rumour Mill: Another Raw star to be added to TLC Main Event against the Shield
Injured Raw star to return and be added to TLC main event?
What's the story?
The odds are already stacked against The Shield at TLC 2017 with Intercontinental Champion The Miz, former tag-team title holders Sheamus and Cesaro and the "Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman as their opponents but on the October 16th Monday Night Raw things are set to get a whole lot worse.
In case you didn't know...
The rivalry between the Shield and The Miz, Strowman & The Bar seems to be reaching a fever pitch with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose facing The Bar in a title match and Roman Reigns facing Braun Strowman in a steel cage.
All of this before their TLC 2017 tables, ladders and chairs match.
The heart of the matter
PWInsider.com has reported that there are plans to stack the deck even further against The Shield at the TLC pay-per-view.
The plan for tonight's Raw is that a mystery opponent will be added to The Miz's team in the main event, making it a three on five handicap TLC bout.
Unfortunately, they were unable to tell us who would be added, but at this point, the early favourite seems to be a returning Samoa Joe
No word yet on who the mystery opponent might be, but Samoa Joe has been on the verge of returning. Start your theories now.
This would make the TLC main event match 5 vs 3 against the Shield's favour, not including the Miztourage which would be an interesting as we've never truly seen The Shield as total underdogs in a storyline.
This would be an interesting move because even with the addition of Braun Strowman I think everyone thought The Shield would be winning at TLC, but add another person to the mix and things suddenly become less clear-cut.
