Bray Wyatt's shocking Universal Championship win at Crown Jewel last night could lead to a huge trade going down in WWE between Raw and SmackDown.
Much to the surprise of many WWE fans, 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt defeated Seth Rollins in the main event of Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia to win the Universal title.
This result means three of WWE's four main roster singles championships, Universal, Intercontinental, and WWE title, are all held by superstars who are assigned to SmackDown.
Only the United States Championship, which is currently held by AJ Styles, is assigned to Raw as of writing, but that soon could change.
Not through one of the titles above changing hands, but through a huge trade.

According to Cageside Seats, there’s some speculation that the Bray Wyatt Universal title win at Crown Jewel could be a set up for a big trade between Raw and SmackDown.
It's currently unclear as to who could be traded, but WWE may have given us some clues already over the past couple of weeks with their programming.
One superstar could be Brock Lesnar and the WWE Championship, allowing Raw to once again have a major title on their programming following the likely departure of the Universal title.
This would fit perfectly into current WWE programming, as he's currently involved in a feud with Rey Mysterio, who is assigned to Raw.
This could also see Lesnar's Crown Jewel opponent, Cain Velasquez, become a Raw superstar as well since he's been teaming up with Mysterio on WWE programming recently too. He's currently a free agent.
In return, Raw could send over Drew McIntyre, who has been highly tipped to be the next in line for a top title shot, as well as a promising star like Ricochet, and possibly a few future draft picks.
Over the past week, WWE has teased a big announcement on their Backstage show on Fox following SmackDown this week. This could be when the trade is announced.News Now - Sport News
