WWE SmackDown: 5 reasons why Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan teamed up again
Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns teamed up once again this week after Bryan tried to intervene and save the latter from a two-on-one beatdown at the hands of the 'King' Baron Corbin and Shinsuke Nakamura.
The angle worked well, and the company booked a tag team match for later on in the night which saw Bryan pin Nakamura to pick up the victory.
The closing moments of the show were similar to the end of their tag team match at Hell in a Cell. Reigns and Bryan shook hands before exiting.
This showed that the two men were on the same page and the company could be looking to build upon this in the next few weeks.
In this article, we will look at the five reasons why Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan teamed up once again to take on the heels.
#1 To give a meaningful segment
Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan competed at Hell in a Cell in a tag team match where they formed an unlikely team to take on Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. The two men were successful in overcoming their opponents and put an end to their rivalry.
Now that the WWE Draft is over, it seemed like both men were without any direction or feuds at hand. This was obviously a problem for the company, as the WWE Championship is held by Brock Lesnar who is already engaged in a feud whereas two top babyfaces had nothing major to do on the brand.
The angle allowed them to first have Roman Reigns compete at the beginning of the night and also test a potential long-term rivalry between the two men.
At the end of the night, Bryan pinned Nakamura which has now opened up a lot of opportunities for the company. SmackDown can now focus on building Nakamura vs. Bryan for the Intercontinental Championship, while they can give Reigns someone like Corbin to focus on.
