4 Things WWE got right last month (November 2019)
December, the final month of the year, has arrived and WWE will be hoping to end the year on a high note. With this week's blockbuster RAW episode, the company certainly got off to a great start. TLC will be the only pay-per-view of the month and it is set to take place on December 15th.
November was a monumental month for WWE, as several changes were made after the brand split. Survivor Series, one of the company's biggest pay-per-views, took place last month, delivering an outstanding show with all three brands. Moreover, a few titles also changed hands in November.
Let's take a look at four things WWE got right in November.
#4 The brand switch of world titles
When WWE introduced the Universal Championship in 2016, it was unveiled on RAW, making it the Red Brand's primary world title. The WWE Champion, on the other hand, officially became SmackDown's world championship. However, the scenario changed last month, as the Universal Championship and the WWE Championship switched brands.
Brock Lesnar was attacked by Rey Mysterio at Crown Jewel, giving 'The Beast' a reason to quit SmackDown and pursue Rey Mysterio on RAW. The two men produced a spectacular feud, and faced off at Survivor Series.
The Fiend was also put in a bizarre situation after winning the Universal Championship at Crown Jewel, where he beat Seth Rollins. Bray Wyatt was already swapped to the Blue Brand in the draft, and a SmackDown Superstar wasn't eligible to hold the Universal Championship, which was then the top title of the RAW brand. When Lesnar quit the Blue Brand, it was clear that Universal Title would move over to SmackDown and become the top title there. It was certainly a brilliant move from WWE, considering only the midcard titles switched brands before.
