After being delayed due to Roman Reigns being out of action with a viral infection, The Shield's in-ring reunion will take place on Raw tonight.

WWE announced today that Reigns, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose would be teaming against The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus in a six-man tag match on tonight's show. The Shield were originally supposed to face Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman & Kane at last month's TLC pay-per-view before Kurt Angle had to replace Reigns on short notice.

Reigns is returning to television for the first time since October 16th tonight. He was also absent from WWE's European tour as he waited to be cleared to return from the illness.

Cesaro & Sheamus won the Raw Tag Team Championship from Rollins & Ambrose in Manchester last week, with a distraction from The New Day playing a part as they faked another SmackDown invasion of Raw. WWE will follow up on that tonight and on SmackDown tomorrow, likely setting up a Shield vs. New Day match for Sunday's Survivor Series PPV.
