Kevin Owens could be set to lose the Universal Championship

Published 2 Comments

Kevin Owens shocked the WWE Universe when he won the Universal Championship a few weeks ago on Monday night Raw. 

The former Intercontinental Champion was helped to the victory by Triple H, who made his return and turned on his former protege Seth Rollins. The pedigree to Rollins helped Owens pick up the victory, but Triple H hasn't appeared on WWE TV since. 

Although Owens has become a standout performer on WWE TV over the past few months reports from The Inquisitrseems to suggest there are many people that expect Owens to lose the Universal Championship on Sunday night.

Seth Rollins is heading into his third consecutive match for the Universal Championship this weekend, after failing to defeat Finn Balor at SummerSlam and being ambushed by Triple H a few weeks ago. 

The likely scenario here is that Triple H returns to WWE on Sunday night and inadvertently costs Owens his title by interfering or Owens drops his Championship to Seth Rollins without any outside interference.

It is thought that the latter is more likely because Raw ratings have taken a hit since Owens became Champion and despite the fact that Raw is now going up against Monday night Football, the rating's failures are usually blamed on the person at the helm of the company.

It would be a huge mistake for WWE to allow Owens to lose the title and then in turn crown a new Champion, this would then mean that there will have been three Universal Champions in the space of a month. 

Given that this is Monday Night Raw's biggest Championship, WWE won't want it to lose prestige before it has been given the chance to gain it. There have also been rumors that Stephanie McMahon or Mick Foley could actually vacate the Championship if outside interference once again plays a factor in the result, but this would also be a mistake, because the title has already been vacated once. 

WWE need to allow Owens the time to cement himself as Champion and understand that ratings are not a complete reaction to the person who is Champion at the time. Rollins is set to embark on a rivalry with Triple H, so he won't need a Championship, but it will be interesting to see who Owens' next challenger will be if he manages to retain in Indianapolis.
