So seems Bray is set to go straight back into a Universal title feud. I think The Fiend is a character that doesn't need the belt but at the same time this is a feud that makes sense due to the history and currently on the Smackdown brand there is a shortage of top level opponents for Braun, looking down the roster it's only really Bray that could be taken seriously somebody who would have a real chance of beating Strowman. 

The thing that worries me is it was rumoured that post Wrestlemania the plan was for Roman Reigns as the new Universal Champion to feud with and likely defeat Bray Wyatt, so it makes me wonder if Braun has replaced Reigns in those plans and Bray will be fed to him. 

It's a tough call as I like Strowman and he needs to be booked strong and I'd like to see him have a long and credible title reign that really establishes him as a top guy, but equally Bray Wyatt is still recovering from the quick loss to Goldberg and he needs to pick up steam in his next feud.

Quote  During Friday night’s WWE SmackDown broadcast, it was announced that Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt for the WWE Universal Championship will take place at Money in the Bank.

As of now, Strowman vs. Wyatt and the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank matches are confirmed for the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event.

WWE Money In The Bank takes place on May 10th and will air live on the WWE Network.

  

Wasn't a great segment without Wyatt being there, Strowman isn't the best at cutting promos without a audience and I thought it came across a bit awkward. 

I wonder if without a crowd are we set to see another Fun House style match? I wouldn't be against this idea as I enjoyed the first one but if they do I hope we get to see much more of a fight this time. Bray and Braun are capable of putting together a decent hard hitting match I think. 

I'm wondering if the title will end up back on Bray as I can't see The Fiend suffering another major clean loss, unless they just go with some sort of non finish.

I enjoyed this match, was a decent big man style scrap. 

The ending was a little weird made Wyatt look dumb for him to get suckered in like that, was obvious what was going to happen. I wasn't surprised to see Strowman get the win as Bray was wrestling as Firefly Fun House Bray so this sets the rematch with Bray as The Fiend. 

I don't really like seeing Bray wrestling just as Bray now and would rather he did all his matches as The Fiend.

Good segment and I'm glad Wyatt is back on tv after a month long absence. The Firefly Fun house segments are often the highlight of Smackdown. 

Interesting that we saw the return of the original Bray Wyatt character this week, it was unclear if this is a one off or if Bray will continue and maybe work a match against Braun under the gimmick. I do like the fact that Bray is effectively a Mick Foley type who can switch between multiple characters, I also like that The Fiend seems to be kept as a special attraction only appearing very sporadically. 

My guess is Extreme Rules will see Braun take on original Bray and the third match will see Braun vs The Fiend at Summerslam, maybe there will be another Firefly Fun House match or another cinematic gimmick match.
