Major Opponent Announced For Bray Wyatt At Starrcade

Bray Wyatt will meet perhaps his biggest challenge yet on the Dec. 1 Starrcade event in Duluth, Georgia, where he'll go up against one of his former allies.

The Infinite Energy Arena's official website recently listed the matches for the card. Wyatt is slated to defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman in a steel cage match.

Strowman and The Fiend, of course, spent several years together with The Wyatt Family. The Monster Among Men split from the stable when he was moved to Monday Night Raw in the 2016 draft.

Wyatt is set to defend his Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan at the Survivor Series pay-per-view next Sunday. It was also recently announced that he'll face Rey Mysterio in a steel cage match at the Nov. 30 event in Mexico City.

So it's a long stretch of top-tier opponents for The Fiend, but the signs obviously point towards him retaining up until Starrcade at least. It simply wouldn't make sense for Wyatt to be listed for all of these championship matches if he was going to drop the title over the next couple of weeks.

It also sounds like Wyatt could eventually clash with The Miz (his original opponent for the show in Mexico City), en route to a showdown against Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 35. We'll just have to wait and see how everything plays out.

Strowman Can Help Enhance Wyatt's Push

Wyatt is arguably the hottest thing in WWE right now, but if he defeats the likes of Bryan, Mysterio and Strowman, it will only increase his value and overall push. Pitting Wyatt against a larger and stronger opponent will make for some great theater, even though it's safe to assume that The Fiend will win.
