Wyatt hit Sister Abigail on Strowman for a two count. Strowman countered a second Sister Abigail and dropped Wyatt with a Chokeslam. The champion rallied and threw Wyatt to the outside. Strowman trucked over Wyatt and sent him crashing into the barricade. Strowman put on the black sheep mask from his days in the Wyatt Family. Wyatt fell to his knees, happy that he broke through to Strowman. The champion fell to his knees, and Wyatt stood up. Strowman got to his feet and the two men hugged. Wyatt’s puppets celebrated the moment, but Strowman pulled the mask off. He dropped it to the floor and stomped on it. Strowman slammed Wyatt for the win to retain the WWE Universal Championship.
