The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

Bray Wyatt Captures Universal Championship

The Fiend has captured the Universal Championship. At Crown Jewel on Thursday, Bray Wyatt defeated Seth Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere match to win the title. Wyatt is now a two-time world champion in WWE.

The two men were fighting in a rematch after their Hell in a Cell clash went to a no contest. It was a hard-fought affair, with The Fiend catching Rollins with a Mandible Claw after being put through some electrical equipment. The two will battle in a rematch on Monday night in a steel cage.

With Wyatt being a SmackDown superstar, it leaves SmackDown with both world titles and Raw with none. Fox made sure to let everyone know about it.

First Women’s Match In Saudi Arabia

Elsewhere on the card, Lacey Evans and Natalya competed in the first women’s match in Saudi Arabia. The women competed in bodysuits and long t-shirts in their match. Both women got good ovations from the crowd during the match. However, during their entrances both women had water bottles thrown at them by audience members in a move that feels indicative of parts of the Saudi culture that remain. 

Natalya made Evans tap out to the Sharpshooter, and both women were emotional after the match.

Survivor Series: Raw vs SmackDown vs NXT

An announcement from WWE during Crown Jewel has fans excited. Survivor Series this year will be a three-way showdown between Raw, SmackDown & NXT. 

How this will be rolled out is yet to be seen. Still, it is an exciting wrinkle to the old Survivor Series format, and can be used to showcase some talented NXT performers to a wider WWE audience. Undisputed Era versus The O.C. anyone?

NXT:UK Results

Bumped to an earlier slot due to Crown Jewel, NXT:UK had another stellar episode this week. Match results for the show were:

  • Piper Niven & Rhea Ripley def. Jinny & Jazzy Gabert
  • A-Kid wins his debut match against Kassius Ohno
  • Joseph Connors def. Roy Johnson
  • Jordan Devlin def. Dave Mastiff

Enjoy the weekend, folks! Unleash your Inner Otis.
