Bray Wyatt vs Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman announced for the Universal title at WWE Payback. The Big Dog made his intention to reclaim the title at SummerSlam.
SummerSlam 2020 marked the return of Roman Reigns. The Big Dog was originally scheduled to face Goldberg at Wrestlemania. Instead, he backed out of the event due to concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
Braun Strowman filled in for him and beat Goldberg to win the Universal Championship for the first time in his career. Soon after he found himself in a feud with former leader and mentor Bray Wyatt. Wyatt managed to prise the title out of Strowman’s clutches in the main event of SummerSlam. However, he, along with Strowman, were soon brutalized by Reigns who made his intentions very clear.

Some fans may believe that this is a little early for Reigns to insert himself in the main event scene. However, technically he was already there when he left and is owed a match for the title he never lost.
One has to feel for Wyatt and Strowman though. It is likely that the former will lose his title just a week after losing it. Strowman on the other hand, seems to have been included just to eat the three count in order to protect Wyatt. This would mean two crushing losses in the span of a week for a man the WWE want you to think is a monster.
However, this is all just speculation at this point and there’s a good chance we’re getting ahead of ourselves. For now, we will just have to wait and see how this unfolds and where it leads to.
