Mystery solved? Things have gotten a bit more interesting over the last few weeks in WWE, with one of the bigger stories over the year starting to take shape. That would be the question of who has been trying to attack Roman Reigns, who has survived someone trying to attack him with both a forklift and a car. Daniel Bryan and Rowan have been searching and had their conclusion this week.

This week on SmackDown Live, Bryan and Rowan unveiled the man they said did it, an unnamed man who happened to look quite a bit like Rowan himself, even down to the long red beard. This was the result of Buddy Murphy accusing Rowan of being the attacker, a claim which he later recanted. Murphy faced and defeated Bryan in a singles match on SmackDown Live.

I don’t think this is what was expected. Check out the reveal of the attacker:

Opinion: I don’t think it’s any secret that this is likely a red herring to move the story forward towards its ultimate goal. There’s nothing wrong with that though as there is no need to rush the story for the sake of having a match take place at the next pay per view if they aren’t to that point yet. Let the story go in a natural direction and see how much better it can be.
