• Original Plan For The Fiend’s Universal Title Win, Why It Got Changed Multiple Times

“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt captured the Universal Championship in the main event of WWE Crown Jewel 2019 pay-per-view.

However, that wasn’t the original plan. Vince McMahon made a lot of changes regarding the Universal Championship plans.

According to The Dirty Sheets, below is the original plan and all the changes that were made before & after The Fiend finally captured the Universal Title:

– The original plan was for The Fiend to win the Universal Title from Seth Rollins at Hell In A Cell 2019. The Fiend vs. Seth Rollins rematches were booked for Live Events and RAW dark main events all the way to December.

– However, Vince soon realized this would lead to Brock Lesnar vs. The Fiend at Survivor Series 2019 (according to the “Champion vs. Champion” format at Survivor Series) and that is something Vince doesn’t want to do as he wants to protect both men.
