Summer Slam 2016: First-Ever WWE Universal Champion Crowned

In a red-hot match at the recently concluded Summerslam 2016, Finn Balor defeats Seth Rollins to become the first-ever WWE Universal Champion in History.


The title was created following to the company’s brand split and draft taking the WWE Heavyweight Championship to Smackdown Live thus creating a need for a Championship for its other brand RAW.

Finn Balor , who’s had a long and storied career all around the world and NXT, made his way to the WWE Main Roster  when he was drafted to Raw in July of this year. Balor has since rose to the very top of the ladder defeating former champion and No. 1 draft pick Seth Rollins to be crowned the first WWE Universal Champion in History.
