The Fiend is the strongest gimmick going on in WWE programming heading into the WrestleMania season. If the rumors are to be believed then he is all set to main-event the biggest stage of them all for the first time ever.

As per the earlier reports, Roman Reigns is going to be his supposed opponent at the upcoming show set on April 5th in Tampa, Florida. Meanwhile, the road to the marquee spot for The Fiend has been an interesting one.

Seth Rollins Complains About The Fiend’s Red Light During Matches

As noted earlier, The Fiend has a post-feud effect on his opponents, to date. It started with Finn Balor back in 2019 summer. After Balor was defeated by The Fiend at SummerSlam he went back to NXT and turned heel.

Same norm was followed for Seth Rollins who digested a tremendous amount of boos from the fans and turned heel in due course on Monday Night Raw. Daniel Bryan has also felt the same effect after an attack by the demonic persona where he had to turn babyface. The American Dragon was back to stretch the ongoing feud until 2020 Royal Rumble where a championship rematch is in-store.

CM Punk Comments Vulgar On The Miz Over Social Media

In addition, The Miz has shown the effect as well who has turned back into a heel after his min-feud with The Fiend has been over. Thus, WWE is trying to leave a fallout on all the opponents of the Universal Champion.

According to Tom Colohue, this “post-feud effect” of The Fiend wasn’t the original plan, at all. Plus, the change in Miz’s persona must have something to do with the return of John Morrison. This man had an illustrious history with The Miz which could be reinstated on SmackDown.

Overall, the post-feud effects have happened based on storyline angles and WWE capitalized on it to strengthen The Fiend character,

“It started off pure coincidence but when it comes to this Miz heel turn, I think maybe the change was leaning towards [John] Morrison and it was planned, and you see several elements building to it.

But [Miz’s heel turn] was also a little bit sudden, so I think they’re leaning into what is happening with Bray Wyatt, as they did with KofiMania and like they did with the main event of WrestleMania 35. They saw the way the wind was blowing and they leaned into it.”
