Perhaps the most dominant character on Monday night Raw programming is The Fiend, Bray Wyatt. He has re-debuted in a scary avatar putting a mask on who’s on a mission to take out WWE legends. Plus, back at Summerslam, he picked up a big win against Finn Balor. It is evident that the WWE creative team will be pushing him to build him in a strong way. Also, he could get a title shot in quick time.
As per the recent reports, The Fiend Bray Wyatt could be next in line for the Universal Championship. The Golden1 Center in Sacramento, California, the host venue of the October 6th Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, posted a tweet claiming The Fiend Bray Wyatt is will be competing for the red-strapped title. He will be challenging either Raw Tag Team Champion Braun Strowman or RAW Tag Team & WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins to a Cell match at the PPV event.
With the momentums that The Fiend Bray Wyatt have, right now, we can consider him to be the next Universal Champion and the one to take the title away from Seth Rollins. Ringsidenews.com additionally reported via Brad Shepard that “WWE was considering if/ when Wyatt wins a title that they could give him a special design. A custom title belt for The Fiend could be a thing a terrifying beauty.”
So there’s has to be major plans around the monster down the line as 2019 approaches the fall. Hell in a Cell is going to be the first PPV event following WWE Smackdown’s move to FOX hinting that big things could be in-store on that night including a new champion on Raw in The Fiend Bray Wyatt.
However, WWE is yet to decide whether the demonic character will get the chance to challenge for the Universal title or not. As for now, the host arena website of Hell in a Cell has advertised Randy Orton vs. WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre listed. Even before this, we will get Clash of Champions on September 15th where Seth Rollins is set to defend the Universal Title against Braun Strowman. They will also team up that night to defend their RAW Tag Team Titles against the team of Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.
