#4 Erick Rowan as Roman Reigns' mystery attacker (WWE SmackDown 27/8/2019)
The summer of 2019 saw one of the most intriguing storylines in recent WWE history, as Roman Reigns was subject to a couple of attacks from out of nowhere. This angle had a lot of potential and had some bright spots. Samoa Joe teased a babyface turn and Buddy Murphy looked like a star.
However, the reveal was ultimately a disappointment. Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan were the main suspects, but it turned out that the former Bludgeon Brother did it all on his own. This was a mistake, as Rowan had a very clear ceiling as a singles star in WWE. He isn't even in the company anymore.
Who should have been revealed: Daniel Bryan
Bryan still had a lot to give as a heel in WWE and should have had an excellent program against Roman Reigns. The two could have had a brutal Hell in a Cell match in October but instead, they teamed up to defeat Rowan and a returning Luke Harper.
Murphy would have also been a better choice, but he was set as a babyface after his star-making performances against Reigns and Bryan on SmackDown. WWE just did not follow them up with anything for the Australian. Daniel Bryan being revealed as the attacker would have instantly made this angle great.Published 22 Sep 2020, 12:47 IST
