WWE were doing everything right. They were booking Wyatt as a monster. His attacks felt sinister and he felt unbreakable. He kept kicking out at 1 after every pin attempt and it was a little bit surprising. Brock Lesnar, the most unstoppable figure in modern WWE has taken pinfalls after 3 curb stomps, but it somehow took Wyatt over 8. Wyatt still didn’t lose by pinfall, but by a bogus DQ because Seth hit him with a sledgehammer? DQ Inside Hell In a Cell? Wyatt proceeded to murder Seth Rollins post match with a mandible claw which caused Rollins to bleed from the mouth.
While the post match attack was sickening and gives The Fiend’s credibility back, we cannot excuse WWE after they put themselves in such a situation. They didn’t want Rollins to lose and they didn’t want Wyatt to lose, so why book this match so prematurely? No one for one second asked for Wyatt to be Universal Champion until WWE booked the match.
Reason Why Wyatt Didn’t Win
Wyatt probably didn’t win because WWE weren’t prepared to have Wyatt as a champion. Rollins is a much safer bet as a champion, and heading into Survivor Series next month, it would be better for Wyatt to not face WWE Champion Brock Lesnar who has to rebuild himself as champion after the issues against Seth Rollins this year. Having Lesnar beat Rollins in the inter-brand Survivor Series match to redeem himself from his two losses would make sense.
