Conflicting reports have surfaced regarding a potential on-screen rivalry between WWE’s Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns and the recently returned Bray Wyatt.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t of Wrestling Inc. Marco Rovere), Reigns vs. Wyatt is an idea that has been discussed internally within WWE due to the strong reactions Wyatt has gotten since he returned to Extreme Rules this month.

fighting team (h/t Rovere) later reported that a WWE creative source said that Reigns vs. Wyatt is not currently being considered. The source reportedly said, “Where would we go from there?” regarding a feud between Reigns and Wyatt, and that the company “learned from Fiend’s run” that the angle wouldn’t work.

Reigns is the top star of the company, and is about to be champion for 800 consecutive days. That’s essentially the length of his run as a heel as well, and he’s made it more popular than ever with WWE fans.

Despite being a three-time world champion and one of the most popular WWE Superstars of the last 10 years, Wyatt was surprisingly let go last year amid a series of budget cuts.

He remained a free agent for over a year, but the door for his comeback was opened when Vince McMahon stepped down from his roles as chairman, CEO and creative director.

Triple H became WWE’s chief creative officer in McMahon’s stead and went to work bringing back several Superstars who had been let go from the company. Up to this point, Wyatt’s comeback has been the biggest of them all.

Anticipation for Wyatt’s return built up for several weeks with “White Rabbit” vignettes and hints via QR codes. When the return finally happened, it was heralded as one of the biggest and most memorable moments in recent WWE history.

Fans have shown their appreciation for Wyatt’s return by making him the company’s top merchandise seller ahead of Reigns and The Bloodline, according to Meltzer (h/t Rawat Shivangini of Ringside News).

It can be argued that Wyatt has already established himself as the best babyface in WWE, perhaps making him the ideal foil for Reigns at some point.

For now, Wyatt’s character appears to be battling his inner demons rather than another Superstar as Reigns prepares to defend his title against Logan Paul at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on November 5.
