Bray Wyatt's "Fiend" character has been an instant smash. Although he has only used the persona for one match, a dominant victory over Finn Balor earlier this month, it appears as if he is already headed for a title shot.
The Golden1 Center in Sacramento, California, which will host the 2019 WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view, announced that Bray Wyatt will be challenging for the WWE Universal Championship at the show. It is clear that the announcement was slated to be made before the Clash of Champions pay-per-view next month, as it made sure to leave it open ended as to who he will be facing.
Strowman, who debuted in WWE as a member of the Wyatt Family and has often credited Wyatt as being his mentor, responded, "If the student has to teach the teacher then so be it!!!! He can get these hands like anybody else."
Wyatt then replied, "Lol. Come teach me baby boy. I love you , I've never lost to Seth, and I don't care if I die. Literally."
