Goldberg def. “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt to become the new Universal Champion
RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA — Goldberg is once again Universal Champion, having handed “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt his first loss to relieve him of the title in WWE Super ShowDown’s shocking main event. No, this is not a drill.
Much like Goldberg’s title victories, the match was nasty, brutish, and short. The title bout featured a trade-off of Spears (Wyatt took four) and Mandible Claws (Goldberg suffered two), as unstoppable force went head-to-head with immovable object. When Goldberg kneed and headbutted his way out of the second Mandible Claw, he had an opening, and he converted, planting Wyatt with a Jackhammer to stun the world and win the title.
“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt didn’t stay down for long, making it to his feet while Goldberg celebrated his win. But instead of making a move against the new champion, he vanished into the darkness and left the icon to celebrate. And as Goldberg begins his second reign as Universal Champion, he once again returns to the vaunted pinnacle of the industry. The irony, of course, is that he may be next — but that’s a challenge for another day.
