Survivor Series 2019: 5 Reasons why The Fiend retained the WWE Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan
WWE Survivor Series 2019 has been quite the show thus far, with a lot more good than bad through the duration of the show until this point. Pete Dunne and Adam Cole had one of the best matches of the year, where Cole retained his Championship.
So, one wondered if Daniel Bryan would be the man to dethrone The Fiend to become the new WWE Universal Champion. Of course, this was not to be because, after a competitive match, The Fiend came out on top.
I was pretty confident that it would be The Fiend who would emerge victorious in this particular contest. And I will illustrate why with 5 reasons in this very article.

#5 The Fiend is the hottest thing in the wrestling business
Never in the history of WWE was it a place where the best in-ring workers were pushed to the top, at least until Superstars like Daniel Bryan changed the game completely. While that is a great thing in a way, it has also resulted in the killing of strong 'characters,' something that draws a huge fanbase to the product in days of the past. The Fiend is the last of the old school 'characters' in a sense, and maybe the strongest one that the company has, at this point in time.
Because of the crossover appeal of The Fiend, this is a Superstar that connects with audiences who may not necessarily be hardcore wrestling fans, and WWE's approach is probably to push the man right now. His merchandise sales are off the roof as well, and the fact of the matter is that, at this moment, while WWE has a lot of great workers, The Fiend is one-of-a-kind. WWE will want to make such a character the face of its flagship blue brand!
