WWE Night of Champions 2015: The Wyatt Family vs. Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & Mystery Partner full match preview

Six-man Match

The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper & Braun Strowman) vs. Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns & MYSTERY PARTNER

Wherein we all wonder what the Shield bros have up their sleeve to counter BigAss McStrongman.

The Road to Night of Champions

We were all having a pretty good laugh after SummerSlam, right along with Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns. LOLBRAYLOSESONPPV. What a cad. His promos don't even make sense.

Just when it looked like the obligatory Raw rematch was going to go the exact same way, the lights went out, some creepy horror noises played and we met Sister Abigail's Black Sheep. But it went much worse for Ambreigns than it did for you or I.

An attempt by Ambrose to face the monster Braun Strowman one-on-one the next week didn't go too well. But that's not even the worst of it. Since the match was announced as a six-man...the style four of the men in this bout were famous for back in the days when Seth Rollins wasn't a traitor and Erick Rowan was healthy (and not a super-genius who made his own wine)...Bray has his instructed his family to destroy anyone who even appears to be allying themself with Ambreigns.

First, Randy Orton was layed out for a simple backstage chat with the friends. Then, The Eater of Worlds showed off his teleportation skills when he and the fam snatched Jimmy Uso from out of a match against The New Day and into Strowman's death hug.

The Big Dog wasn't happy that The Lunatic Fringe brought his cousin into their war with The Wyatts in the first place. It seems like he's placing the blame for Uce's incapacitation on Bray for now. But the cult leader is a master of mind games - his now months long feud with Reigns being one psychological tactic after another - so it remains to be seen if he tries to use that as a wedge between the "brothers" as we head to Sunday's pay-per-view (PPV).

For now, Dean & Roman are in good spirits and dealing some tricks of their own with regards to the "partner of their choosing" for Houston. But Wyatt's last words from this week's SmackDown are probably still ringing in their - and whoever might stand by their side - ears.

What's at Stake?

The addition of the man my partner in crime likes to call BigAss McStrongman has made Bray and his cause feel like a threat for the first time in a long time. We still don't know what his game is, or why he's been so determined that it be "anyone but" Roman Reigns for the last several months, but consistently getting the upperhand has been a good look for he and Harper since SummerSlam.

Night of Champions would be a good place for that to continue, too. The bigger the mountain the good guys will have to climb, the more over they'll be as a result, so re-establishing the Family with the help of Strowman is smart business.

As good as the build has been, the biggest risk might be in having Ambreigns' partner disappoint. Even though they've set up a reason for it, Orton probably wouldn't excite folks too much, nor would someone like Mark Henry, ever with his Texas roots.

Names like Kane and Rowan have slightly more value given past ties to Bray and the "whose side is he on?" effect that their appearance would generate.

And then there's the chance that this will be when we finally see a turn for one of the babyface Shield-exs...
