This week’s episode of SmackDown Live ended in a mystery as Roman Reigns, who was going to issue a SummerSlam challenge, was attacked by an unknown person.
While how this mystery attacker angle affects the SummerSlam
plans involving Reigns is not known, it appears we may now have an idea about
his future after the upcoming PPV.
Local advertisements are a promoting Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan for several shows this fall including the upcoming Raw and SmackDown tapings from Madison Square Garden in early September.
This match is also being advertised for many Live Events and
one such event is the September 28th Live Event from Toyota Center in Prescott
Although not confirmed, these advertisements suggest that
these two stars are going to be engaged in a rivalry after the SummerSlam PPV.
This won’t be the first time Bryan and Reigns would cross paths as they have had a short feud in 2015 which concluded with a match at the Fastlane PPV before WrestleMania.
Reigns challenged Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 31. He had put up his title shot against the Beast on the line for his match against Bryan at the show.
It’s not known how WWE plans to kick off this feud between Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns and it would be interesting to see if the mystery attacker angle ends up being the start of this rivalry.
