Seth Rollins has held onto the WWE Universal Title in his latest title defense. 

He did so when he beat Braun Strowman in the headliner of the WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view event in Charlotte, North Carolina. Post-match, Bray Wyatt appeared and hits Sister Abigail to Rollins to close the show.

This contest came after the two stars had worked a previous match in the night. Strowman and Rollins dropped the WWE RAW Tag Team Titles to Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler

The company took its time with booking this match after a few weeks of teasing between the two babyfaces. 

WWE Clash Of Champions Results (9/15)

Rollins won the Universal Title when he dethroned then-champion Brock Lesnar in the headliner of the SummerSlam pay-per-view event in Toronto, Ontario at the Scotiabank Arena. 

WWE is going in a different direction heading into the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event on Sunday, October 6, 2019 in Sacramento, California at the Golden 1 Center.

Last month, Bray Wyatt issued a challenge to Rollins or Strowman for a Hell in a Cell match at this upcoming show. WWE sent out commercials to various markets to promote upcoming live events that advertised Rollins vs. Wyatt, so it appears that is the next program.
