Brothers will band together against a twisted family at WWE SummerSlam, as Roman Reigns will team with Dean Ambrose to take on the recently reunited Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper.
Since costing Reigns the Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match in June, The New Face of Fear has targeted Reigns by taunting him with photos of his daughter and repeating the mantra, “Anyone but you.” Wyatt and Reigns squared off at WWE Battleground, and as The Big Dog looked to have his adversary beat, a hooded Harper emerged to aid his former leader.
The next night, Wyatt made it clear that he and Harper were still family, and Reigns seemed to be fighting an uphill battle. That all changed when The Lunatic Fringe emerged to support his friend, resulting in a chaotic brawl following Reigns’ match against Harper. When Wyatt and Harper emerged on the following SmackDown to cost Ambrose his match with Sheamus, it became evident that they had not taken Ambrose’s meddling lightly.
The Eater of Worlds elaborated on his reunion with Harper by recounting how he found his comrade as a “damaged man,” and “fixed him” so he could one day set him free. Harper, in turn, credits Wyatt for saving him from what he perceives to be the world’s cruelty. Wyatt warned Ambrose to stay away from his issue with Reigns, but the former Shield brothers have proven that their bond, too, is unbreakable.
Refusing to back down, Reigns laid down the challenge for a “family war” on the August 6 edition of SmackDown. In doing so, he promised that Wyatt, who accepted the challenge later that night, would be “picking the teeth out of his beard” when The Big Dog and The Lunatic Fringe got done with him and Harper.
