WWE Monday Night Raw preview: October 9, 2017
Hell in a Cell will naturally be a tough act to top, but it's not because of a dearth of action lined up for Monday Night Raw.
With a potential Shield reunion poised to happen, will the unholy alliance between the Miz and the Bar push the Hounds of Justice over the brink and force them to join hands?
Or will the new-found common ground between the Intercontinental Champion and the former Raw Tag Team Champions prove to be too strong to undo, as they seek to pile the numbers game upon Roman Reigns once again?
Having defeated Bray Wyatt, both as the Demon and as the man, how will Finn Balor fare when he is met with a sinister challenge that the WWE Universe has only heard of but never seen before in Sister Abigail?
And despite defeating each of the Raw Tag Team Champions in consecutive weeks and laying down a beating on Enzo Amore, Braun Strowman's quest for a competition is far from quenched.
Who will the Monster among Men target this week as he continues on his comeback trail after his defeat to Brock Lesnar at No Mercy?
Visiting all of these talking points and more, here is our preview of this week's episode of Monday Night Raw.
If the silent understanding between Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to close out last week's episode of Raw was anything to go by, the Shield may be on the verge of reforming again.
Despite being the Big Dog and the conqueror of Undertaker and John Cena, Roman Reigns clearly cannot deal with three men at once.
And after being on the receiving end of a brutal beating two weeks on the bounce, he seems to have enlisted familiar faces to help him out.
Will the Shield present a united front, even as Miz TV brings the Intercontinental Champion and the Bar on the same page?
Or will Roman Reigns, yet again, have to face the wrath of the three men on his own?
