The Fiend Bray Wyatt Becomes Universal Champion at WWE Crown Jewel



WWE traveled to Saudi Arabia for the fourth time earlier today and presented one of the best shows that the country has ever seen. While the show had already seen the 24/7 Championship change hands twice on the show before the main event, it was The Fiend who truly stole the show when he defeated Seth Rollins to become Universal Champion for the first time.

Rollins and The Fiend collided in a Falls Count Anywhere match where the referee wasn’t allowed to end the match for any reason, there had to be a pinfall. Bray Wyatt was electrocuted at one point in the match and then seemingly set on fire, but the referee was forced to allow the match to continue.

Rollins had already proved that fire was no match for Wyatt, who was able to rebuild the Firefly Fun House after he had burned it to the ground during an episode of Raw a few weeks ago.

The fans had pushed WWE to give Wyatt the title after Rollins had seemingly turned heel through his actions in recent months and now the company has finally listened to its fanbase and decided to equalize on the popularity that The Fiend currently has.

The issue now is the fact that Monday Night Raw no longer has a World Championship, since both Brock Lesnar and Bray Wyatt are on SmackDown, although the red brand does still have one trade option following the draft.

This means that Lesnar could be heading back to Raw with the WWE Championship, or The Beast could be losing the title soon so that it can be taken to Raw. This win is the first World Championship for Wyatt as The Fiend and now leaves Raw without a title for the first time since 2016, just before the Universal Championship was officially introduced.
