One more time. We are less than two weeks away from Summerslam and that as usual, it is going to be one of the biggest shows of the year. That is the kind of show that WWE needs to build up in a big way, which is what they have been doing for several months in some cases. One of the biggest matches on the card was announced this week and it was one that has been built up for a long time now.
One of the biggest feuds in all of WWE at the moment is the battle between Universal Champion Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt. This is a feud that has been built around the pair’s time in the Wyatt Family, but now Strowman is his own man. The two of them have faced off twice now on a pair of pay per views, but now they have something even bigger to do.
WWE.com has announced that Strowman will face the Fiend for the title at Summerslam. This comes after Wyatt challenged Strowman to defend against the Fiend last week on SmackDown, with Strowman agreeing. The match will be their third on pay per view, after Strowman defeated Firefly Fun House Wyatt at Money in the Bank and the Eater Of Worlds Wyatt seemingly defeated Strowman at Extreme Rules in the Swamp Fight.
The two have come a long way to get here. Check out what got us here:
Opinion: I could go for something like this, if nothing else for the sake of getting rid of this feud once and for all. I’m not sure if this story was strong enough to warrant three pay per view matches but that’s where we are after four months. The Fiend needs to end Strowman’s lame duck title reign once and for all as they need to move on to something, or maybe anything, else.
What do you think of the match? Who leaves with the title? Let us know in the comments below.
