The Next Universal Champion After The WWE Crown Jewel

Well, WWE has now been growing as one of the prominent, most-followed, entertaining, and popular sports events. For anyone who doesn’t know, WWE stands for World Wrestling Entertainment. It’s a sport where Wrestlers, both male and female, fight each other to entertain the audience. WWE has grown a lot in the recent years, with a large fan-base, ranging from kids to even olds. The whole wrestling match is scripted, i.e. the winner, the moves by threw wrestlers etc. are already decided by the management, but people get entertained by the spirit of the wrestlers.

WWE head so many wrestlers that they can’t be adjusted in only one roster. Do, it has two brands, one being a RAW brand and the other SMACKDOWN brand. WWE has its own reward for its wrestlers, they get to win Championship Belts.

The whole WWE universe knows that WWE superstar Roman Reigns is currently holding the Universal Championship. The WWE management in the recent years has tried a lot to portray Reigns as the babyface, i.e. the ultimate superstar. Reigns debuted in WWE in the year 2012, when he entered the arena with two other superstars Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, collectively known as The Shield. That was the golden period of Reigns’ career as he received the support of the whole WWE Universe.

Slowly The Shield began to become the most dominant force in the roster and Reigns grew as a popular superstar. He completed in tag team matches with the Shield and also in one-on-one matches. Due to the reactions he received, he was made the babyface. Even after the time when the Shield broke up in 2014, he maintained his aura. He won all the championships one after one. He apart decided to be made the Universal Champion, which was then in the hands of The Beast Brock Lesnar. But he had to wait too long till 2018, as the management planned to create a record on Brock’s name as the longest reigning Universal Champion.

But when the time came to make The Big Dog three champion, Chairman Vince McMahon had other ideas. Reigns had been losing the fan base he had due to the amount of pressure the management had been putting on him to become the babyface. The WWE Universe began booing him. After the Shield, Reigns had lost a bit of the support of the fans. So, the management decided to give him a push by reuniting The Shield again. The plan worked, but not to the extent which it had been expected to.

On the other hand, Reigns in a natural way got some support back as the WWE Universe didn’t want Brock Lesnar to be the Universal Champion anymore, the reason being his absence most of the time and him not defending the title most often. But people knew Reigns was a fighting champ as he defended any title he got to the most. So, this gave Reigns some support to be the next champ.

So the management decided to give him another push by introducing Braun Strowman into the feud. Stroman had become one of the strongest and toughest competitors till then. He had been named The Monster Among Men due to his strength. The management thought this would give Reigns some push. But the plan flopped. So, a new decision was taken to portray Braun into a negative light, i.e. turn him heel. He was scripted to attack Reigns wherever he could and to criticise the WWE Universe. Braun already had created a name and had been getting a lot of support, so this was a risky decision. But it came out to be somewhat successful and Roman started getting cheers.
The storyline was extended to the pay-per-view events, The WrestleMania, The Greatest Royal Rumble and the last, where Roman got his championship, bring The Summer Slam. Roman was still lacking the support he needed as the fans booed him along with cheers.

But, Braun couldn’t be immediately removed from the Championship storyline. So, a match was put for the Championship at a PPV Hell in A Cell. But the storyline was changed again and Brick was put into it, which is rumored to be a trick to increase Reigns’ supports. At last, it was made an official match between Reigns, Strowman and Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WWE’s new PPV, The Crown Jewel.

So the question is, who should be the next Universal Champion? Should Reigns retain? Or should Strowman be made the new champion? Or should Lesnar win back his title?

According to my opinion, Reigns should retain. It’s because Strowman had a great support of fans. Even if he loses, he can be put into another storyline and can get back to winning ways. Coming to Lesnar, he had already become a part-timer in WWE as he has joined UFC. And according to sources, he has been put to the feud only to extend the storyline and increase Reigns support. Coming to why Reigns should retain, he has been losing his fans support lately. So if he retains, he can become popular once more. He is already a fighting champion, he can defend his title every time he enters the ring, and in this way, can be popular once more.

WWE SUPER SHOWDOWN 2018 – ALL MATCHES AND WINNER PREDICTION

So 2018 is the marquee year for WWE as it has given us various Pay-per-view events with a lot of awesome matches which gave us goosebumps (at least to me for sure). First, we saw the WrestleMania, followed by The Greatest Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, and Hella in A Cell. Now WWE is returning to “down under” Dubai for another great event by the name The Super Showdown.

WWE SUPER SHOWDOWN 2018 – ALL MATCHES AND WINNER PREDICTION

So let’s discuss the matches we are going to see in The Super Showdown and I will tell you about the rumored prediction of winners.
Here they are –

1. CEDRIC ALEXANDER (c) vs BUDDY MURPHY (WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP) –

CEDRIC ALEXANDER (c) vs BUDDY MURPHY

CEDRIC ALEXANDER (c) vs BUDDY MURPHY                                                                                               Source: wwe.com

We are going to kick-off the event with a great match between Cedric and Murphy. Since Murphy was drafted from NXT to 205Live, he has blossomed as one of the top superstars in the roster. And he belongs to Australia as well. So there would be no better place than this to crown Murphy the new champ. I age Cedric has done a great job as the champion, with great title defenses, but Murphy deserves a better one here.

Winner – Buddy Murphy

2. THE NEW DAY (c) vs THE BAR (WWE SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM TITLES) –

THE NEW DAY (c) vs THE BAR

THE NEW DAY (c) vs THE BAR

So The Bar is back to tag team business, with another opportunity in a major event. They last had their title opportunity at The Greatest Royal Rumble against Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy when they were in the Raw brand. And we know The New Day is just a master class in tag team wrestling and they can give a nail-biting match anytime, for example, watch their matchup with the Bludgeon Brothers at SummerSlam. You can expect this match to steal the show. But The Bar Hager no chance here, and we can once again see then losing the match after a hot fight.

Winner – The New Day

3. BECKY LYNCH (c) vs CHARLOTTE FLAIR (WWE SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP) –

BECKY LYNCH (c) vs CHARLOTTE FLAIR

BECKY LYNCH (c) vs CHARLOTTE FLAIR                                                                                        Source: WWE.COM

Two former best friends, Becky and Charlotte have now sworn enemies. After a long time, Becky has realized her dream of holding the Women’s Championship in her hands. And she shredded her glee-face and became a stubborn-heel, but with great support. She didn’t leave even a chance to get her hands on Charlotte. And Charlotte is now on the challenger’s side as she managed a rematch fo against her former best friend. Well, Becky won her championship recently and we are probably not gonna see Charlotte winning it back. Do expect it to be a high-voltage match, with Becky retaining her title.

Winner – Becky Lynch

4. JOHN CENA & BOBBY LASHLEY vs KEVIN OWENS & ELIAS –

JOHN CENA & BOBBY LASHLEY vs KEVIN OWENS & ELIAS                                                Source: WWE.COM

Finally, John Cena is back to business again. Get ready as we are going to see a “Superstar Face Duo vs Mid-card Heel Team “. Expect it to be an s not-so-action packed match, with Cena and Lashley just thrashing Owens and Elias for an easy win.

Winner – John Cena and Bobby Lashley

5. ASUKA & NAOMI vs THE ICONIC (BILLIE KAY & PEYTON ROYCE) –

ASUKA & NAOMI vs THE ICONIC

ASUKA & NAOMI vs THE ICONIC                                                                                    Source: WWE.COM

Oh man! Asuka has been given the dirt-worst treatment since her drafting to SD Live. Even a lower rated superstar like Carmella handing her loss after the loss was a sheer torture. And her inclusion in this match is confusing. Naomi was having some heated rivalry with The Iiconics, suffer had her random back up in Asuka, and we got a match. Expect the WWE doing a favor on The IIconics by giving then a big win in front of their home crowd.

Winner – The IIconics

6. RONDA ROUSEY & THE BELLA TWINS ( NIKKI AND BRIE BELLA) vs THE RIOTT SQUAD ( RUBY RIOTT, LIV MORGAN, AND SARAH LOGAN) (6 – WOMEN TAG TEAM MATCH) –

RONDA ROUSEY & THE BELLA TWINS

RONDA ROUSEY & THE BELLA TWINS                                                                                     Source: Mykhel.com

Yeah, we are getting a match as stupid as this one. Who would think The Champ Ronda will have to team up with Bella Twins for a tag team match? Becky’s getting a title defense there in SD Love and the Raw Women’s Champion is in a tag team match? Are you serious? Looking at who they are facing, you should expect The Super Baby Face Trio of Rousey and The Bella Twins to get a win, but not an easy one though.

Winner – RONDA ROUSEY & THE BELLA TWINS

THE SHIELD vs  DOLPH ZIGGLER                                                                                 Source: WWE.COM

Were you expecting The Shield vs The Wyatt Family? No no. That’s too far away. But don’t be worried. WWE is going to blow your mind with this match, owing to the storyline that has been put. Seth Rollins’ summer opponents Drew and Dolph chose to aid The Monster Among Men and destroy The Shield, with ask their dreams being shattered. This is the first major event match for The Shield after their reunion last month, so expect them to win. Expect plenty of hot tags, strongman feats by Strowman, slick offense by Ziggler, impactful maneuvers handed out by McIntyre, and efficient teamwork from The Shield. But see the win coming to The Shield.

Winner – The Shield

8. DANIEL BRYAN vs THE MIZ (#1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH FUR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP)

DANIEL BRYAN vs THE MIZ

DANIEL BRYAN vs THE MIZ                                                                              Source: WWE.COM

Daniel Bryan and The Miz have developed an intense hatred for each other ever since their NXT Season One paring in 2010. The Miz got his win this year recently and so, we needed a second one. The stakes are higher in this match, as the one who wins is the #1 contender for the WWE title. And I see this honor going to Daniel Bryan. So, Bryan week be offered a championship match, which he will lose due to outside interference by the Muz, taking this feud to The Survivor Series.

Winner – Daniel Bryan

9. THE UNDERTAKER (WITH KANE) vs TRIPLE H (WITH SHAWN MICHAELS) –

 THE UNDERTAKER (WITH KANE) vs TRIPLE H (WITH SHAWN MICHAELS)

THE UNDERTAKER (WITH KANE) vs TRIPLE H (WITH SHAWN MICHAELS)

The lifelong bout comes to Australia. And hope it ends here. We are going to see a classic, but the exciting match between these two. And don’t be surprised to see Kane and The HBK have some ring-side interference, but all this leading to The Undertaker putting HHH to rest.

Winner – The Undertaker.

10. AJ Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe (WWE CHAMPIONSHIP) –

AJ Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe

AJ Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe

I am going to kill the man who says this is useless. Just look at the competitors. The bout beat these two has reached limits. With Samoa Joe constantly targeting AJ’s family, and AJ losing his temper, we are going to see an intense physical battle here, with AJ retaining his title again somehow.

Winner – AJ Styles

UNDERTAKER vs MICK FOLEY: A Match That Truly Defind Hell In A Cell

The WWE Universe was getting ready for a normal match between two WWE Superstars. Little did they know the match would change the lives of both odd them forever.

The Igloo in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania had been prepared for a Hell in A Cell match between The Dead Man UNDERTAKER and The Mankind MICK FOLEY. Before this match, hell in a cell was just a common match where two wrestlers were locked inside a cage and were literally given everything, starting from chairs, kendo sticks, takes etc. to beat up each other. But this match changed the meaning of hell in a cell forever, it was redefined to be a cage inside of which the locked ones would face the true hell!

UNDERTAKER vs MICK FOLEY: A Match That Truly Defind Hell In A Cell

UNDERTAKER vs MICK FOLEY: A Match That Truly Defind Hell In A Cell

It was the most barbaric, death-defying, violent match in the history of World Wrestling Entertainment. In one night, Mick Foley put his body on the line and sacrificed himself for the sake of entertainment, thus creating a legacy for himself as the one of the toughest, most respected WWE Superstars of all time. The setup to this match was even greater. The Undertaker was having a bitter sibling feud with his brother, King of the Ring Kane. The Dead Man beat The Big Red Monster in an intensely physical match at WrestleMania, and a month later again in the very first Inferno match.

Jane was put into rivalry with Steve Austin, ego had been winning most of his matches till then, and Mick Foley returned as The Mankind, one of his three personas, and rekindled his rivalry with The Undertaker, thus seeing up a date at The Hell In A Cell. No matter how famous and respected both the stars were before the match, it became the highlight of each man’s career.

THE MATCH

Foley came out first, and God knows what was going through his mind, he wanted the match to happen on the steel cage. And there he was, at the top. As The Undertaker came out, he was challenged by Foley to fight the match on the top. As the match started, Foley had the control as he mounted some punches to his opponent. The first few minutes saw Foley gaining on the Dead Man, but the worst, most remembered moment of the match came when Foley recurrence his first bump, which was being thrown down from the top of the cell about 22 feet down onto the Spanish announcers’ table. This triggered announcer Jim Ross to shout the famous dialogue of the era, “Good God almighty! Good God almighty! That killed him!” and “As God as my witness, he is broken in half!”.

Mick remained motionless under the debris, not moving even an inch, while The Undertaker was on the top of the cell starting down. The broken man lying down was attended soon by his longtime friend Terry Funk, followed by WWF’s resident doctor, Dr. Francois Pettit, and various others, including Vince McMahon, who looked much worried though on paper he disliked Foley. Immediately Foley was wheeled out of the arena in a stretcher and the match was stopped.

 

Minutes later, there was commotion on the entrance ramp as Foley matched up onto the top of the cell and the match once again resumed. Foley was fighting with a dislocated arm caused due to the fall, as The Undertaker had a broken foot

Foley gig his second bump of the night when he was choke slammed through the cage onto the ring. No one had thought that the cage would give way under Foley and The Undertaker. For a few moments, he was knocked unconscious, but was able to come around soon. According to the announcers, the prop guy had intentionally made the cage look, but not so that it would just give away. Undertaker after the match said that he had thought that Foley was dead, but he regained well. As he got up, Foley was still smiling through his bleeding lips and teeth, with his one tooth over his nose hanging. It was later found that the tooth broke when he landed face first on the chair he was holding. Foley in his autobiography ‘Have a Nice Day: A Tale of Blood and Sweat socks’ stated that he would have been dead, but was safe as he didn’t properly receive the chokeslam. He said it was the best and the worst choke slam he had received. Foley later explained that the roof of the cell was supposed to sag sufficiently so that Undertaker could kick him through, allowing him to dangle by his feet and eventually fall in a rotation to land on his front. But that didn’t happen.

The match continued for a while longer, ending with Foley being choke slammed by the Undertaker onto a pile of thumbtacks, which Foley himself had strewn onto the ring canvas, and The Undertaker executing the Tombstone Piledriver to end the match and the feud as planned.

Both wrestlers received a standing ovation for the match. In 2011, this incident was named as the number one “OMG!” incident in the WWE history. Both participants have said that the original Hell in a Cell match, between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels at Bad Blood: In Your House on October 5, 1997, was superior; The Undertaker named the Bad Blood contest as his favorite match, while Foley called it the greatest Hell in a Cell bout ever.
