Following the controversial ending to last Sunday’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, WWE decided that the best option was to push forward and begin looking at the Survivor Series pay-per-view instead.
Last night, the company announced that Seth Rollins would be defending his Universal Championship against The Fiend once again on November 24th at the penultimate pay-per-view of the year, before seemingly changing their mind.
WWE sent out the following tweet on their official Twitter account ahead of tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw, but they later deleted the Tweet, so now it is unknown as to whether or not the match will actually go ahead.
It was reported yesterday that Bray Wyatt suffered a legitimate injury at Hell in a Cell and that could be the real reason why WWE decided to take back the announcement since it’s unknown what his current health status is.
The company could also have decided to let the fans settle down following last night’s match before they announce anything for Survivor Series, especially since Crown Jewel has to happen before then on October 31st and Seth Rollins has already been announced as the captain of Team Hogan.
It’s a strange turn of events for WWE to announce a match of this caliber and then decide to delete the Tweet, but if Wyatt’s injury last night was one that will keep him sidelined for a long stint, then it could be why the company has been forced to remove the announcement and think of a plan B.
Wyatt took some horrific hits last night from ladders, steel chairs and even from a toolbox, not the mention the 11 Curb Stomps, so if he is injured and unable to compete at Survivor Series, then it wouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
