Just in case it wasn’t long enough. This Friday, WWE ran five straight hours of television tapings in Manchester, England. While that sounds extra long, it’s only because that is the case. This time around it was a double shot with SmackDown being taped for later in the night and Monday Night Raw being taped in advance for the following week. However, since this is WWE, that just was not enough yet and something else had to take place before the night was over.

After Friday’s double taping ended, there was one more thing to cover before the end of the night. Once Monday Night Raw was over, all three members of the OC were in the ring and insulted the crowd. The lights went out and the Fiend appeared, attacking all three members of the team and giving AJ Styles the Mandible Claw. This marks the first time that the Fiend has attacked Styles or the OC, though it is possible that it was just something for the live crowd and not something that will be taking place on television.

The Fiend can be very menacing. Check out one of his more monstrous moments:


Opinion: There are some people who just work because of how awesome they seem and that is what we have with the Fiend. He comes out, wastes no time, and just destroys everything in his path. That is exactly what he needs to be doing and based on that, he could be the Universal Champion for a very long time to come. Couple that with Bray Wyatt being able to do the promos for him and WWE has itself one of the more intriguing characters in a very long time.
