“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt captured the Universal Championship in the main event of WWE Crown Jewel 2019 pay-per-view.

He defeated Seth Rollins on that night that appeared to be a rematch from Hell in a Cell PPV.

The main event from the gimmick-based show was a disaster as the fans were upset with Rollins retaining the title in a lackluster match.

This forced WWE to come up with a backup plan to make the fans forget about the debacle that HIAC was.

Vince McMahon decided to move Universal Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt to SmackDown with the hopes that the gimmick will get a reboot there.

Seth Rollins remained on RAW with the hopes that the WWE Universe will eventually forget his feud against the demonic character.

This, in turn, forced the company’s officials to make suitable plans so that Brock Lesnar can return to Monday Night Raw.

But this also made some major changes around WWE’s storylines in the recent past. Brock Lesnar was originally scheduled to face a prime name from SmackDown while defending his title.

Daniel Bryan would have been the name as per the earlier plans. But then WWE changed the plan entirely that also affected The Fiend’s future.

Here’s more on this from wwfoldschool.com,

“According to The Dirty Sheets, Brock Lesnar vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship was planned for Royal Rumble 2020, but that won’t be happening anymore since Lesnar is on RAW and Bryan is on SmackDown.

To make up for this, Bryan was put in a Universal Title feud with The Fiend on SmackDown.

With this new Bryan storyline, another plan had to be canceled – The Fiend vs. The Miz.”

With Brock Lesnar and The Fiend residing as top champions on Raw and SmackDown, this could lead a match. Brock Lesnar vs. The Fiend at Survivor Series 2019 (according to the “Champion vs. Champion” format at Survivor Series) could have been the lineup.

But Vince McMahon did not schedule so as he wanted to protect both men from suffering any pinfall or submission loss. So he inserted NXT to the mix and set up the cross-branded affairs alongside title matches from the same brand.
