WWE Crown Jewel: Wrestling Twitter goes into overload after The Fiend Bray Wyatt defeats Seth Rollins to become Universal champion

Fans have criticised WWE in the past for treating these Saudi Arabia shows like they are glorified house shows, but nobody can say that on this occasion.

Not only did Tyson Fury and Cain Velasquez make their WWE debuts from different sports, but we saw a new world champion in the main event.

The Fiend is your new Universal champion

The Fiend Bray Wyatt won the Universal title from Seth Rollins with a match that largely mirrored their Hell in a Cell offering, but the closing moments were awesome.

The Fiend has been one of the most popular characters in wrestling since debuting after WrestleMania and the company have done a masterful job of keeping him exciting.

Wyatt was drafted to SmackDown in the draft that took place a couple of weeks ago, but now he holds the main title on RAW it seems as though one of him or WWE champion Brock Lesnar will have to move.

The Fiend dominated the early stages of the match with Rollins, but the Beast Slayer fought back and hit countless Curb Stomps to get near falls.

When he dropped Wyatt onto some electrics, everyone assumed it was over. That was until The Fiend rose from the ashes, aptly on Halloween.

Rollins was booed throughout the majority of his feud with The Fiend, but now he gets the chance to move away from trying to be a babyface against the most popular wrestler in the business today.

With The Fiend set for SmackDown tomorrow, we should learn more about his next move then.
