Roman Reigns is the new WWE Universal Champion.

The title change occurred during the main event of WWE Payback which was a No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match for the WWE Universal Championship.

Reigns was not in the match until the end as “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman did battle with one another. Reigns came out after the ring had imploded, ropes collapsed and all, and signed the match contract handed to him by Paul Heyman.

Reigns was equipped with a steel chair but ended up pinning Braun Strowman following a spear.
