WWE is going to put their Universal Championship on the line at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. In spite of so much pushback — they’re holding the event in KSA anyway. After all, they already had the card booked and it’s a stacked one indeed.
But, unfortunately, they had to change up their plans for the Universal Title match because Roman Reigns announced on Raw that he has leukemia and it is back after 11 years in remission. Now the Universal Title will be placed on either Brock Lesnar or Braun Strowman at Crown Jewel.
Barnburner sent out a report on their Twitter feed with what they knew about the Crown Jewel event last night. Within the report, they said with certainty that “Braun Strowman will win.. feud with Drew McIntyre.” While we saw a feud with McIntyre coming — the Universal Title win is pretty interesting.
So don’t be surprised if Braun Strowman walks into Crown Jewel as a Monster Among Men, but he leaves as Universal Champion. After all, he will need a big win to get him over as a top babyface again — which is something WWE desperately needs after losing Roman Reigns and defeating Brock Lesnar is exactly how WWE went about pushing Reigns to that next level too — so it might just work with Strowman as well. After all, the last time Braun was in Saudi Arabia, he won the Greatest Royal Rumble.
