Ultimately, in their original booking, it was to be Brock coming back to feud with Finn, while saving Roman for WrestleMania…When this original idea was brought up their plan was to us the Wyatts and the Miztourage to build the 2 groups and at this point, it does not look like the Wyatts as a group will be happening.
