Bray Wyatt and Goldberg’s WWE Super ShowDown match ended up splitting the blue brand’s top program into two separate matches.
Roman Reigns will now face Goldberg for the Universal Title. Bray Wyatt’s Fiend will take on John Cena in a WrestleMania rematch.
During 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff discussed just how surprised he is by WWE’s decision to take the title off such a hot commodity. The Fiend’s character showed all the possibilities of becoming a huge name for the company’s future. Defeating him in Saudi Arabia seemed to divert from that trajectory.
“Given the trajectory of The Fiend character, I was really surprised. Nothing against Bill. He’s not a full-timer. He’s a part-timer, and Bill pretty much sh*t the bed last time he was in Saudi Arabia so I found that shocking particularly as quickly as they did it. A lot of that may have been due to the fact that Bill is not really the right guy to go out there and have a 20-minute match with a guy like The Fiend. I don’t know. It’s interesting though.
WrestleMania is going to be the biggest show WWE can make it. WWE is also trying to sell the streaming rights to the show of shows.
We’ll have to see who Vince McMahon books to win at the show of shows this year. Odds are the part-time Superstars won’t be around that often after performing on the grandest stage of them all.
