The Shield may well be the hottest storyline going in WWE today.  

And at TLC, they are in their first sanctioned match in WWE when they face Team Hell No and Ryback in a six man tag team match.  But don't think for a second that the Shield will only be a factor in their tag match.  

How else will the Shield affect this TLC?

For starter's, the most likely match in which they might interfere is the John Cena vs Dolph Ziggler World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank ladder match.  The Shield might perceive Ziggler having to risk his Money in the Bank contract to be an "injustice," and cost Cena his chance to win.  

They might also interfere in the chairs match between Big Show and Sheamus, but the reasoning behind their interference just isn't there.  

Although, another possibility is that The Shield simply uses TLC as a venue to disrupt everything in WWE by threatening to disrupt the entire show.  

There are so many ways that The Shield can change the course of the show and so many possibilities for what they can do to exert influence.  The question truly is, how will they choose to alter TLC and what will their motivations be?  

It seems likely that The Shield will interfere in Cena vs Ziggler, but what other matches seem likely?  

If there was any one match, besides Cena vs Ziggler, I would guess Kofi Kingston vs Wade Barrett.  Barrett seems like the kind of wrestler that the Shield would support, if in fact they have an agenda.  If they are more about chaos, however, then anything can happen.  

So with these matches right around the corner, how do you think the Shield will affect WWE TLC?
