There is tons of speculation from fans about the mystery partner at Sunday’s Night Of Champions. Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez talked about some possible names but it should be noted that the names are pure speculation and they have not reported any of them as fact. If word gets out before Sunday night then we’ll post an update here.
Kane could be the mystery partner. In fact, Kane was advertised locally for last week’s Raw and he was advertised for the show after SummerSlam but plans apparently changed. Erick Rowan should be ready to return soon so he is a possibility.
Another name that could be possible is The Rock but I would consider him a long shot since Rock is very careful to pick his spots and coming back for this match might not be ideal scenario for him to make a return. It should be noted though that Roman Reigns teased that Rock could be back soon. He teased that in an interview prior to SummerSlam and that led to rumors that Rock could have returned at that show. Of course, it all depends on what Rock wants to do and it depends on how busy his schedule is.
Another name that might make sense is Samoa Joe. Joe is not contracted to the main roster but that could always change if Vince McMahon decides to bring Joe up. Also, Daniel Bryan has been cleared by his doctors but it’s up to WWE doctors to clear him to return to in-ring action and the recent concussion lawsuits might play a factor as to when and/or if WWE ever clears him to return.
