Bray Wyatt promised to reveal a new addition to the Firefly Fun House this week on SmackDown, and the current Universal Champion introduced the WWE Universe to yet another version of the Universal Title.

The new title has the Fiend’s face instead of the big WWE logo in the front, and the side plates have been replaced by Hurt and Heal inscriptions on the belt.

Earlier this week, Bray Wyatt was revealed to be the top merch seller on WWE shop and WWE didn’t waste a single second before introducing the new title on their official shop. The belt is currently advertised as a special edition belt, handcrafted by popular horror movie artist Tom Savini.

Savini also designed Wyatt’s current mask for the Fiend character, and will only be designing limited quantities of the terrifying belt.

The belt is currently priced at $6499 on WWE shop, plus delivery charges, which makes it one of the most expensive items to be ever listed.

It will be interesting to see if this exorbitantly priced title attracts buyers and whether WWE will tone down the pricing in the coming days.

Bray Wyatt promised a major announcement on SmackDown, but that didn’t translate to ratings for the primetime show on FOX. The show averaged a total of 2.322 million viewers, according to the initial reports, which is down from the 2.54 million viewership for the go-home show for Survivor Series last week.

SmackDown ratings have been topsy-turvy ever since the blue brand moved to FOX on Friday nights, but a 2.3 million viewership is extremely low for a primetime show. These were the same numbers SD was drawing during its time on USA Network, a comparatively smaller channel.

The final ratings for all the shows, including NXT and AEW, will be out next week due to the Thanksgiving holidays.
