Big News On Goldberg Winning Universal Title At WWE Super Showdown
The ongoing momentums of The Fiend Bray Wyatt could finally get stopped against The Myth on the upcoming pay-per-view event later this month. As announced during the bygone edition of SmackDown, Bill Goldberg is all set to challenge Wyatt for the Universal Championship at Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia. With an undefeated streak ongoing, The Fiend was the favorite to come out as the winner.
But Vince McMahon might have changed his mind in recent times that could help Goldberg in overcoming the demonic character. Earlier, the plan was that The Fiend would retain the Universal Championship to defend it against Roman Reigns in the potential main event of WrestleMania 36. But there’s a chance that Goldberg may end up winning the belt at Super ShowDown 2020.
This would result in a bout between Roman Reigns and Goldberg at WrestleMania 36 taking out The Fiend from the main event spotlight. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained why WWE may prefer Goldberg to head into WrestleMania as the Universal Champion.

Being an iconic character, the former WCW franchise player is a much heavier name than the monstrous name present on the SmackDown roster. Goldberg squaring off against Roman Reigns would produce more money than Reigns vs. Fiend at the ‘show of shows’. Plus, WWE could also protect the strong status of The Myth at Super ShowDown by letting him pick up a win,
“You gotta protect him and he’s gotta be Bill Goldberg. If you start f*cking with him then he’s not gonna mean anything. He’s a guy you can… so here’s the thing — For WrestleMania — the reality is that for WrestleMania the marquee value at WrestleMania even as much as they’ve spent all year pushing The Fiend as this unstoppable monster the fact is that Roman Reigns vs Goldberg or The Fiend vs Roman Reigns that on the marquee for WrestleMania Roman Reigns and Bill Goldberg will have more fan interest.” (courtesy ringsidenews.com)
Back in 2017, Goldberg won the Universal Championship for the first time before WrestleMania just because WWE recognized him as a better marketable name. Kevin Owens was the one who had to digest a loss on that occasion whereas now The Fiend is the most likely one to suffer the consequences.
