Bill Goldberg became Universal Champion for a second time Thursday after defeating Bray Wyatt in Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Bill Goldberg defeated "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt in Saudi Arabia Thursday, highlighting a Super Showdown event that featured egregious decision-making.

Nick Piccone (@nickpiccone) and Vaughn Johnson (@VaughnMJohnson) discuss the decision to put Goldberg over Wyatt and put the Universal Championship on him, the road to WrestleMania now that Goldberg is champion, whether a match with Roman Reigns is on the horizon or whether a certain 16-time champion might return to seize a World Title record all to himself.
