The Fiend Bray Wyatt finally got his hands on the WWE Universal Championship after a laborious main event in Crown Jewel. The outcome of the match came as a surprise to many fans as SmackDown now has both the top champions of the company.
However, there could be a reason why WWE booked it to happen.

This could get Wyatt as well as the Universal CHampionship back to RAW. Shifting the attention to speculation of different nature, Dave Meltzer stated on the Wrestling Observer Radio that the company may not even have Wyatt with the title for long and he guessed that the Superstar could even drop the championship at the upcoming Survivor Series PPV.
