The legendary rivalry between The SHIELD and The Wyatt Family catalyzed several future storylines, including one featuring Bray going to war with Roman Reigns. The two began this angle when Bray cost Roman the win at the Money in the Bank even just as he reached for the MITB briefcase.

Long before he was ever known as The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns had to establish himself as a top-tier singles star. En route to becoming the megastar he is now, he had to go through superstars like Bray Wyatt. Roman and Bray met inside of Hell in a Cell for what became a legendary match. Despite not winning the match, Bray's performance brought the best out of Roman, helping him evolve into the main event star he is today.

WrestleMania 36 was strangely unique in that the annual event took place inside an empty WWE Performance Center. Due to the COVID restrictions, no fans were allowed inside the venue, which created an environment that superstars were not accustomed to. Needless to say, fans needed some form of entertainment and WWE delivered a great show behind closed doors.

Cena and Wyatt took the fans on an incredible ride, unlike anything they had ever witnessed before. The Firefly Funhouse Match revisited some of the most iconic moments and storylines of years past. The nWo was resurrected during the match, and Cena brought back his Prototype gimmick as well. In the end, Bray came out on top with the win in a spectacle we will never experience again.

After winning the match, Orton and Wyatt found themselves in an unlikely alliance that resulted in a great tag team run. However, the two stars would eventually fall out, causing Bray to venture off on his own.

As the WWE Universe headed into The Elimination Chamber, John Cena had the odds against him as he put his title on the line inside the Chamber against five other stars who had their sights set on their own title reign. After over 30 minutes of exciting action, Bray Wyatt emerged with the title, marking his sole WWE Championship reign.

After the referee ejected Luke Harper and Eric Rowan, Bray was left all alone to show Daniel why he made a grave mistake by turning his back on The Eater of Worlds.
