The Shen Wukong synergy stats shown here demonstrate the areas of his gameplay that do better (or worse) when paired with Wukong, compared to his overall stats. Significant differences are areas of focus that highlight how his gameplay changes when paired with this other champion.
Overall, Shen sees a large worsening in his KDA (ratio of kills and assists to deaths) when paired with Wukong. His KDA fell from NaN to NaN. This negative change shows that Wukong helps Shen perform worse in ranked League games. Yet, the small difference demonstrates that this performance change is only marginal.
When Shen is paired with Wukong, he sees a marginal improvement in his complete damage dealt. This change could demonstrate that Wukong provides protection for him to dish out more damage or that his support also helps extend the match's duration. Similarly, when Shen is played alongside Wukong on the same team, he usually scores many fewer killing sprees compared to when he plays without Wukong. This is contrasting evidence that he is worse when playing with Wukong.
Moreover, when Shen plays with Wukong on the same team, he on average receives a little more damage than when he fights alone. Receiving more damage may mean that Wukong does a poor job of covering Shen in team fights.
There is no universally accepted best synergy for Shen that will always be his top synergy. However, Wukong is a decent ally for Shen. By locking into the same side as Shen, he increases their win rate by 1.9% to 51.8%. This demonstrates that there is pretty good synergy between Shen and Wukong that allows them to perform better together than alone.
Wukong has a lower difficulty than Shen. That means you don't need to be careful when finding Wukong comrades to go into battle on the same side as, as they will require a relatively low level of skill to be able to do well with you.
Working on the same side, you should expect to witness an overall large increase in your team’s capability to tank a lot of damage. Together, these two might be able to provide enough cover for their team's carries.
Conversely, by grouping Shen and Wukong together, you will not be giving your other allies enough magical damage output. Make sure to pick other champions on your team that nullifies this disparity in this pairing's abilities.
Regardless of the ability of your Wukong teammate, you need to focus on increasing your income, staying alive by avoiding foolish fights, and taking down objectives. If you do this, you will do well anyway.
