#5 A loss would have hugely derailed Braun Strowman's momentum
Braun Strowman won the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 36 by defeating Goldberg, after being called up as a last-minute replacement for Roman Reigns. It is safe to say that it was the biggest victory of his WWE career so far and he has a lot of momentum on his side.
With Bray Wyatt being his first challenger and Money in the Bank being his first title defense, a loss here would have hugely derailed all his momentum. It would have established the fact that WWE only wanted him as a transitional Champion to put the title back on Bray.
Braun Strowman chased the Universal title for a long time before finally getting his hands on it (no pun intended) and now that he is the Champion, he surely deserves a proper reign with it.
