Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns set to form a tag team to take out Rowan and Harper

Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan are to form an unlikely partnership

Just less than a year ago, Daniel Bryan completed a shocking transformation as for the first time since 2012, he took on a heel character.

Lowblowing his way to victory over AJ Styles for the WWE Championship in the SmackDown before Survivor Series, Bryan's heel turn was a surprise at the time, but as it turned out, it was a much-needed revitalisation for his character.

The 'Yes Movement' had become a bit stale, and once his feud with The Miz started to become watered down, the time was right to pull the trigger on the 'New Bryan'.

Not even a year on though and it looks like that heel run has come to an end.

A partnership with Erick Rowan that materialised in January of this year came to an abrupt end a few weeks ago when it was revealed that Rowan was behind the attacks on Roman Reigns, which infuriated Bryan.

Rowan proceeded to assault both men after being antagonised by Bryan, and after re-uniting with Luke Harper at Clash Of Champions, attacked both Bryan and The Big Dog on this weeks SmackDown.

So what happens next in this storyline?

Well according to the Wrestling Observer, per Cageside Seats, Bryan and Reigns are going to team together for an undefined period of time, presumably to take on the raging force that are Rowan and Harper.

That is a big surprise considering the initial planned match for SummerSlam was supposed to pit the two men against each other, but Harper's return has thrown a spanner in the works.

Bryan is now set to form a tag team with Reigns to take on the behemoths

If Bryan and Reigns forming a tag team does indeed come to fruition, it surely means that Bryan is abandoning his heel character that he did so well to form and is reverting to a babyface - or perhaps a 'tweener'.

Like the apparent decision of WWE or not, it's certainly an intriguing proposition, and you can probably expect to see the two team up at Hell In A Cell to take on the former Bludgeon Brothers.
