The Fiend wins the WWE Universal title at Crown Jewel

WWE pulled a major title change at the conclusion of the Crown Jewel pay-per-view as The Fiend Bray Wyatt defeated Seth Rollins in a falls count anywhere match to become the new Universal champion.

This was Wyatt’s second attempt at getting the title after his first one at Hell In A Cell ended in a very controversial fashion, a decision which was universally panned by fans and critics. WWE promised that this time around, there will be a winner as the match cannot be stopped for any reason whatsoever.

Rollins delivered eight or nine Curb Stomps to Wyatt at the top of the stage and then super kicked him off the platform as Wyatt fell down with the area exploding. After Rollins went down the stage to cover Wyatt, another explosion happened which hit Rollins in the face and The Fiend rose from the dead, hit the Mandible Claw and a Sister Abigail and covered Rollins for the win. The whole match took place under the annoying red lights.

It will be interesting to see what happens with Wyatt as he is part of the Smackdown roster and the WWE Universal title was for Monday Night Raw. Wyatt will be a guest of Miz TV tomorrow on Smackdown on FOX.
