Despite both Superstars being drafted to different brands, Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt will compete in a Universal Title rematch at Crown Jewel.
Suffice to say, the ending to the Universal Title match at Hell In A Cell was one of the more controversial finishes so far in 2019. The point of a HIAC match is that anything goes. That its competitors are not allowed to escape until there's a winner. So when the match was stopped after Seth Rollins swung a sledgehammer at Bray Wyatt, fans naturally didn't respond too well.
WWE effectively booked itself into a corner with the match. It was too early for Wyatt to lose as The Fiend but also didn't make sense to make him Universal Champion. No matter, as that match is now in the past and the beauty of WWE is there is no time to sit and dwell on what went wrong. The carousel never stops turning.
So why on Earth has WWE decided to book a rematch between Wyatt and Rollins? That's right, this week on Raw WWE revealed the debacle that was the pair's match at HIAC will be happening again. This time it will be a Falls Count Anywhere affair rather than inside a cell, and the rematch will go down at Crown Jewel.
The other major issue with this is that Rollins and Wyatt are now supposed to be on different brands. Wyatt was drafted to SmackDown on Friday while The Architect was Raw's first pick on night two of the draft. The fact that WWE is already booking inter-promotional matches between the two brands does not bode well, and perhaps we are not entirely rid of the Wildcard Rule after all.
Despite the hype WWE has put into this latest iteration of the draft, it doesn't seem as if the two sides are going to be as separate as fans might have been led to believe. On top of Wyatt versus Rollins, announcers on Raw hammered home that The Kabuki Warriors will be allowed to appear on both shows due to them being Women's Tag Team Champions. Plus, Natalya and Lacey Evans now appear to be a team despite being drafted to different shows.
