The Shield will be on SmackDown Live this week, per report

WWE on YouTube

When The New Day showed up on Monday Night Raw last week, they did so representing SmackDown Live but it wasn’t an attempt to repeat the prior invasion. Instead, they simply cost Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins the Raw tag team titles.

Roman Reigns is set to return to WWE television this week in what WWE is calling yet another Shield reunion. It’s an obvious set up for a Shield vs. New Day match at Survivor Series on Nov. 19 in Houston.

It makes sense, then, that The Shield would somehow return the favor and show up on SmackDown to disrupt whatever New Day has going on, which, at last word, was a planned match against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Per PW Insider, the word is The Shield will indeed be at the show.

As for a full invasion, that remains to be seen.

Then again, The Shield showing up is a big enough angle, no?
