WWE Starrcade 2019 Results – The Fiend Bray Wyatt Defeats Braun Strowman
WWE Starrcade 2019 has come and gone. The broadcast portion of the show concluded nearly two hours ago and now, as I type this, the event itself has also come to a close. As one would predict, the night was filled with babyface victories aplenty, with the only exception being title defenses. Indeed, not a single title changed hands, though only three of them were defended in the first place in the end.
Curiously, the scheduled WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship match which would’ve seen the New Day defend against the Revival apparently just didn’t happen. This isn’t uncommon for WWE, especially nowadays, but it’s nevertheless odd that all four men were pulled from the card in favor of putting on a handful unannounced matches.
Either way, we’re here to talk about the main event, which saw quite the monster mash as The Fiend Bray Wyatt defended his WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman in a Steel Cage match.
The Fiend defeated Braun Strowman in what is said to be a fairly short cage match main event.
These two together were never likely to be put in an Iron Man match so this is no big surprise. Evidently the fans were unhappy with this bout nonetheless, booing after the finish. It seemed the ending was rather anticlimactic.
After the match, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows made their way out to insult the crowd and Braun Strowman. This of course resulted in the Monster Among Men running through the both of them to send the crowd home happy.
All in all, what little I could see of this event was fun, but nothing to write home about. The crowd did seem really into it however, and it was an oldschool babyface favoring audience, which is quite the dying breed, atleast in the US. So that much was fun. But for the most part, it was a show that didn’t really need to happen. A house show with a big name and an hour broadcast onto the Network. S’pretty much the long and short of it.
