It's the company's most watched clip since the Hardy Boyz return.

The Shield reuniting on Raw this week has become the most-viewed WWE YouTube video since April.

The clip, which sees the faction's original cast working in tandem for the first time since their split - a backstage segment last year excepted - has garnered 3.7 million views in the 24 hours since it was uploaded.

This makes it WWE's most popular YouTube submission since a video of the Hardy Boyz making a surprise return at WrestleMania 33 earlier this year.

The trio will now square off in what is sure to be a chaotic four-on-three handicap Tables, Ladders & Chairs match with The Miz, Sheamus, Cesaro and Braun Strowman at October's Raw pay-per-view of the same name later this month.

With their long-awaited reconciliation coming just in time for Survivor Series, it's probably safe to say they will also be in five-on-five traditional elimination match action against a team led by either Miz or Strowman.

If there's a downside, it's that the crowd's goodwill on Monday was very obviously in aid of Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, with Roman - despite the company's best efforts - still unable to command a positive fan reaction.

Perhaps, this time round, it will be The Big Dog who takes a chair to his friends' backs.
