Top 5 takeaways from this week's RAW - October 2nd, 2017
How does this week's RAW change the direction of the WWE?
Raw was entertaining this week, with a lot of storylines being developed, meaning that the show was multi-layered, something that the WWE creative team doesn't always get right. The Red brand is gaining momentum towards TLC, their next PPV, and potentially Survivor Series which is on the horizon.
Overall, this week's edition was an entertaining RAW and one of the better editions I have seen in a while.
#1 We will be seeing the Shield Reunite
The Miztourage was not the strongest of opponents for a reunited Shield, and to be honest would not have got the WWE fans' pulses racing. That said, the combination of The Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro is a totally different matter.
These three could pose a realistic threat to the Shield, and after the beat downs that they opportunistically provided, would justify the "Hounds of Justice" reforming to seek out retribution.
Given that Survivor Series is around the corner, it will be interesting to see how long they drag this storyline out and whether they aim for TLC, the next RAW PPV, or hold off to the bigger stage.
A big match at Survivor Series could be the reason why WWE got the faction back together
