Brothers will band together against a twisted family at WWE SummerSlam, as Roman Reigns will team with Dean Ambrose to take on the recently reunited Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper.

Since costing Reigns the Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match in June, The New Face of Fear has targeted Reigns by taunting him with photos of his daughter and repeating the mantra, “Anyone but you.” Wyatt and Reigns squared off at WWE Battleground, and as The Big Dog looked to have his adversary beat, a hooded Harper emerged to aid his former leader.

The next night, Wyatt made it clear that he and Harper were still family, and Reigns seemed to be fighting an uphill battle. That all changed when The Lunatic Fringe emerged to support his friend, resulting in a chaotic brawl following Reigns’ match against Harper. When Wyatt and Harper emerged on the following SmackDown to cost Ambrose his match with Sheamus, it became evident that they had not taken Ambrose’s meddling lightly.

The Eater of Worlds elaborated on his reunion with Harper by recounting how he found his comrade as a “damaged man,” and “fixed him” so he could one day set him free. Harper, in turn, credits Wyatt for saving him from what he perceives to be the world’s cruelty. Wyatt warned Ambrose to stay away from his issue with Reigns, but the former Shield brothers have proven that their bond, too, is unbreakable.

Refusing to back down, Reigns laid down the challenge for a “family war” on the August 6 edition of SmackDown. In doing so, he promised that Wyatt, who accepted the challenge later that night, would be “picking the teeth out of his beard” when The Big Dog and The Lunatic Fringe got done with him and Harper.

Which team will prove to be the stronger surrogate family? Watch WWE SummerSlam, live on Aug. 23 at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network, to find out.

When Roman Reigns won the 2014 Superstar of the Year Slammy, it seemed the WWE Universe had picked its new icon.

His post-Slammy coronation has yet to come, though. Reigns watched the man who stabbed him in the back, Seth Rollins, stand tall at the end of WrestleMania 31 in what many believed would be Reigns’ moment. His attempt at redemption fell flat at Money in the Bank, thanks to Bray Wyatt.

#8  Roman Reigns

Remember that early episode of “Total Divas” where Eva Marie and JoJo had a minor freak-out when they ran into Roman Reigns in the gym? Right then you could’ve tagged the 2015 Royal Rumble Match winner as WWE’s next big thing, because what other guy could intimidate a roomful of dudes while making Maxim models go weak in the knees just by showing up? Reigns is a rare breed, the kind of performer who can have a faceoff with Brock Lesnar or a walk-on as a reality show heartthrob and appear just as convincing in each. Believe that.

If you’re looking for a Superstar to follow in 2015, the line starts behind Roman Reigns.

The WWE Universe can’t take their eyes off him. That became clear when, despite being sidelined for nearly three months due to injury, Reigns was voted as the 2014 Superstar of the Year. The people have spoken; they see his potential to one day become “the man.”

Dissecting the year Reigns had, however, isn’t as important as studying the building blocks of what could be a historic WWE career. From his rapid recovery to his Royal Rumble and Survivor Series records to his dominating efforts against Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and others, the former Shield strongman has proven he can overcome nearly any obstacle.

Can Reigns build upon those past successes to reach the summit? The WWE Universe’s gaze will undoubtedly remain upon him in 2015 until the answer comes into focus. — MATTHEW ARTUS

ALIGNMENT: “I think I’d be both [a hero and a villain] like Wolverine. He’s a hero, but it’s not really by his choosing. He’s still edgy and kind of a loner. So a bit of a lone wolf hero.”

POWERS: Health regeneration; ability to control metal

COSTUME: “I’d probably keep it similar to what I wear now. I like to think I have the coolest gear in all of WWE history and I’m willing to argue that until the day of my death.”

ARCHENEMY: “Captain America. He sucks.”

ALTER EGO: “I don’t think I would hide it. I would just be in Superman mode the whole time. There is no nerd version of my superhero; he’s just a man all the time.”

WEAKNESS: “No weakness. I would never explain my weakness. You can’t do that, it’s ridiculous.”
