Many people subscribe to the theory(first posed by Celestial D. Dragon) that Shiliew has obtained Diamond Jozu's devil fruit, and will use his new power to take down Mihawk, eventually leading to a Zoro vs Shiliew fight for Zoro to become the greatest swordsman in the world and avenge his mentor.
Many people also believe Shanks will eventually die in the series at the hand of Blackbeard to serve as extra incentive for Luffy to take down Blackbeard. If Shanks and his crew were to have an all out battle with the Blackbeard Pirates, I can definitely see a scenario where Mihawk aids Shanks in this battle. In this scenario, Shanks would be taken out by Blackbeard and Mihawk by Shiliew.
We could also see the Kid pirates allying with Blackbeard since we know they want to take down the Red Hair Pirates, fall to the Straw Hats in a fight that features Luffy vs Captain Kidd and Zoro vs Killer(saw this theory first in a RogersBase video).
Could you guys see something like this happening in the story? If it did happen it would probably end up being my favourite arc...
