Why not up the stakes? One of the most intense rivalries leading up to SummerSlam 2020 has been “The Monster” Braun Strowman vs. “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship. These two former members of the Wyatt Family have created a build to this match, unlike anything we have seen in a while.
However, it would appear that more is needed to settle this score.
This morning on Talking Smack, it was announced that the match between these two will now be a Falls Count Anywhere match. Check out the final moments of Smackdown last night:
When Strowman and Wyatt last crossed paths, the Universal Champion returned to his old stomping grounds at the Wyatt Swamp, where he endured a snake bite, being tied up in a chair, and a haunting image of Alexa Bliss.
Sporting his old Hawaiian shirt and cackling maniacally, Wyatt took advantage of his “homefield advantage” to send Wyatt head-first into the murky swamp and stood tall at the conclusion of The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules.
On a recent episode of SmackDown, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt trapped Alexa in the ring and applied the Mandible Claw in a horrifying scene. A week later, however, Bliss appeared to dissuade “The Fiend” from doing the same thing, gently blocking his hand and touching the side of his face before Strowman interrupted on the TitanTron. Speaking in a low but ominous tone, The Monster Among Men claimed that he has been pushed to his breaking point and vowed that he is more than a man… he is “the thing that nightmares are made of.”
The first thing that I thought when I heard this announcement is that this could lead to some pre-produced segments backstage, which could be integrated with the live action that will be taking place in the arena. I’m not sure if that will be the case, but I do know that I am looking forward to this match and it should be an absolute war!
