Last week, advertisements for a house show in Mexico promoted a match between Universal Champion The Fiend Bray Wyatt and The Miz.
As a result, many speculated that the plan was for the former WWE Champion to be Wyatt’s first challenger after defeating Seth Rollins at Crown Jewel.
For Smackdown show after Crown Jewel, WWE was advertising a Miz TV segment between The Miz and Bray. The idea, according to Dave Meltzer, was for the segment to set up a feud between the two.
However, this week on Smackdown, The Fiend attacked Daniel Bryan backstage during the Friday Night Smackdown taping. It now appears as if Wyatt will be feuding with Bryan in the coming weeks.
However, the card for the Starrcade pay-per-view seemingly confirms that The Miz and Bray Wyatt will still be working matches together moving forward.
The pair are currently advertised to wrestle in a steel cage match for the Universal Championship on the show.
The following other matches have been announced for the show.
