Reason Why Goldberg Dethroned “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt At WWE Super ShowDown



Goldberg lost the Universal Championship to Braun Strowman in a quick, highly physical encounter this past weekend at WrestleMania 36. The Myth delivered four spears but that wasn’t enough to keep The Monster down who fired back with four powerslams to clinch the title.

Goldberg himself enjoyed a 37-day title reign by dethroning “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt this past February. The masked monster, who held the big red belt for 118 days suffered a shock maiden loss at the hands of the veteran in an epic contest at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.

WrestleZone reports that Goldberg dethroning Wyatt in The Middle East was a last-minute call. The bold decision was made to protect The Myth’s image as a superhero.

“We were told that Goldberg going over was a last-minute decision, apparently because Goldberg didn’t want to risk damaging his image. It was noted that Goldberg bargained for creative control and pushed for the title win because ‘The Fiend‘ was a monster and the younger fans needed to see him come out victorious, or it would ruin his character”

Goldberg’s latest title run officially cemented him as a 2-time Universal Champion. He is also the only Superstar above the age of 50 and the only Hall Of Famer to hold the prestigious championship twice.

Goldberg has been open in the past about believing kids saw him as a superhero, and it appears he felt keeping the mystique alive was critical this time around as well. Furthermore, it was explained that Bray eventually agreed to put him over, which might have gained him some more favor with the locker room. As far as when we could see Goldberg back in a WWE ring, that might not happen for a long time, if at all.”

Hopefully, Goldberg will return to WWE for the company’s next Saudi Arabian pay-per-view later this year. For now, it’s in the best interests of WWE to keep The Myth away and protect his mystique.
