The professional wrestling industry lost one of its biggest gems in the form of Bray Wyatt hardly two days ago. It is impossible to take him away from the minds of the WWE Universe and the tributes are flowing each day for ‘The Eater of The World’. Fans are not oblivious to the impact that he has created on the fans as well as on his co-stars.
A user took to social media (X) to share a glimpse of how Bray Wyatt affected the fans’ love towards Roman Reigns. Sharing a clip from their match against Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio, he wrote, “For one night only, it made Roman Reigns as a tolerable babyface because of Bray“. The two-minute-long clip also became a source of some of the most powerful segments in the ring.
In the latter half of the video, Bray Wyatt held Alberto Del Rio for Sister Abigail. As the referee started the countdown, Sheamus walked his way towards him. However, he was stopped by Roman Reigns who pushed him away with a spear following Bray’s order. The finger-pointing captivated everyone’s heart including Sheamus who labelled the move as “incredible“.
Roman Reigns has thrashed all the records of modern-day pro wrestling when it comes to having title runs. However, many from the WWE Universe want to see the change of belts. This, in turn, has invited a lot of hate for The Tribal Chief. However, his rivalry with Bray Wyatt had given the WWE Universe multiple moments to cherish for a lifetime.
Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt rivalry over the years
Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt have a very bitter-sweet relationship. While there were instances where the duo could go to any extent to walk out as the better man, there were situations that put the two to pair up. In both scenarios, the two stars shone out exceptionally.
Their rivalry first began at Money In The Bank 2015 when Bray’s interference stopped Reigns from marking his win. Consequently, the two faced off numerous times in the ring in singles as well as tag team matches. After over 4 months of heated rivalry, the two closed each other’s chapter after Reigns defeated Wyatt at Hell in a Cell.
