WWE News: Daniel Bryan Reveals Potential Attacker Of Roman Reigns On Smackdown
The headliner of last night’s Smackdown Live appeared to be the big revelation by Daniel Bryan about the mystery attacker of Roman Reigns. So we have witnessed a big man with his face covered at the backstage waiting to reveal his identity. Before we know about him, Bryan had to square off in a match against Buddy Murphy, as per the schedule. It turned out to be a solid contest that went in favor of the former Cruiserweight Champion.
Buddy Murphy started the contest by hitting a drop-kick and keeping his opponent out of the ring with a high-fly. But the veteran Daniel Bryan came back with the submission moves like Rings of Saturn and the LeBell Lock. Murphy countered a Tree of Woe attempt with a sit-out powerbomb to come back. He neutralized Rowan with a superkick followed by the Murphy’s Law on Bryan to pick up the biggest win of his career.
But he could barely enjoy the moment after heading to backstage as Daniel Bryan and Rowan chased him and delivered an onslaught attack, out of frustration. As Smackdown was approaching an end, Roman Reigns entered their room to find out the potential mystery attacker who was a bearded man just looking like Rowan. The Big Dog looked fully confused as the show went off the air leaving the question unanswered.
Are we seeing DOUBLE?!

The saga featuring Roman Reigns has been quite interesting that started even before Summerslam. He suffered an attack where someone tried to bury him under some metal structures and thereby destroy his life. This was not it as the very next episode of WWE Raw witnessed another such attack where the mystery attacker tried to run over him through an SUV car.
Buddy Murphy informed Roman Reigns that Rowan and Daniel Bryan could be behind these attacks. Even online reports also suggested that a feud between Bryan and Reigns is about to begin proving those words to be right. But The Planet’s Champions was not happy about it and ambushed Murphy at backstage, last week. This also set up a match between the two of them on Smackdown, last night, as confirmed by WWE.com,
“Last Tuesday night, Daniel Bryan & Rowan forced Buddy Murphy to admit he lied about seeing Rowan at the scene of a car accident that nearly maimed Roman Reigns. Tonight, WWE’s Best Kept Secret will look to restore his name against “The New” Daniel Bryan on SmackDown LIVE. Murphy proved he would not be one to back down when he challenged Bryan to this match over the weekend. Will Buddy be able to get a measure of retaliation after Bryan & Rowan recklessly brutalized him last week?”
But the night did not go down smooth for Daniel Bryan, as expected. He suffered a huge loss against Buddy Murphy that was unexpected. Plus, the lookalike of Rowan brought on Smackdown is a clear-cut setup to misguide Roman Reigns which should be out, soon.
