"The Fiend" Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan For The Universal Championship Set For WWE Royal Rumble

Daniel Bryan is getting another shot at "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt and the Universal Championship.

In the main event of SmackDown, Bryan forced The Miz to submit in a triple threat match that also involved King Corbin. The win granted Bryan a title shot against Wyatt at the Royal Rumble, taking place on January 26.

The road to naming that number one contender for the Universal Title was a bumpy one that spanned the entire show. The match was supposed to kick off SmackDown, but Roman Reigns attacked Corbin, resulting in the match later being a one vs. one match between Bryan and Miz.

When Bryan and Miz had their match for a few minutes, Corbin's lackeys attacked both men and causing a double disqualification. After Bryan and Miz chased Corbin backstage, the match was reset into a triple threat match. Bryan unsuccessfully challenged for the Universal Championship at Survivor Series when he lost to "The Fiend."
