Ever since Braun Strowman arrived on the main roster, The Wyatt Family have dominated both Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.
It was clear that that the two teams were set to meet again, and on Saturday night the WWE confirmed a huge match for Night of Champions.
THE LONE WOLF
The WWE were never going to have a handicap match between the two teams. Reigns and Ambrose need a partner and the WWE started the hype on Saturday night.

Based on images making rounds on social media, the mystery partner is rumoured to be none other than NXT’s own Baron Corbin.
There’s a slight chance that the image has been altered, although it’s being rumoured that the WWE accidentally posted the image including Corbin before changing it.
Many expected that it would be former Wyatt Family member Erick Rowan who joins Ambrose and Reigns. However he hasn’t recovered from his injury so the chances are he won’t be playing a part in the match at Night of Champions.
IS CORBIN THE RIGHT CHOICE?
Based on the options the WWE currently have available, Corbin is probably the best choice to go with. He offers something different to other options the WWE have available.
Many lists circulating online featured the likes of Rowan and even a masked Kane .In reality they simply aren’t the correct fit for a match like this or even a good fit to team with Reign and Ambrose.
Big names should still be considered if Corbin isn’t the final plan. Names such as Randy Orton will always pop up because of the importance he has in the company and his experience could be vital.
Cesaro is another addition who could play an important role. Although this would be a big step up for him to showcase his skills further, he doesn’t really fit into the feud.
If the WWE want to stick to an NXT superstar, then you cannot rule out somebody like Samoa Joe.
He is a machine, and this would be very well-deserved for someone who has such a big reputation. He could definitely make a good go of trying to take down Strowman.
If we think further outside the box, the Demon Balor could also be in consideration. The only issue here is that too many big NXT stars are moving to the main roster too soon, leaving a big gap on NXT.
WHAT DOES CORBIN OFFER?
If you’ve never seen Corbin in action then don’t expect a technical masterclass from him. He’s still got a lot of learning to do.
If you think about it, he’s very similar to what Reigns was not too long ago. He hasn’t got a lot of in-ring ability but he makes up for it with an impressive look and explosiveness.
I do think Corbin is a good choice. There are options available but I don’t think any of them will offer a huge surprise much like Corbin will.
A lot of the main roster fans won’t have seen him in action, so he’d definitely get a reaction. He’s coming off a loss to Samoa Joe at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn so the pressure will be on him if he does make his main roster debut.
He stands at 6’8”, so he can definitely look like a legitimate threat to take down Strowman. If anyone can go toe-to-toe with Strowman, then Corbin would be a top pick.
