Bray Wyatt/The Fiend has revealed his horrifying new WWE Universal Championship belt.
Revealed on an episode of Wyatt's Firefly Fun House on Smackdown, Wyatt begins by talking about his new redesigned belt before deciding The Fiend needs one too. The new belt, which features the Fiend's grisly visage stretched across it, is then revealed. The image was later shared by horror icon Tom Savini, who revealed that he helped design the new championship title. Savini is known for his work on such films as Friday the 13th and Dawn of the Dead.

Born Windham Rotunda, Wyatt is the son of wrestler Mike Rotunda and grandson of Blackjack Mulligan. After stints with Florida Championship Wrestling and The NXT, he eventually joined Smackdown. The mask for Wyatt's Fiend persona was designed Savini and his studio. This is his first time holding the WWE Universal Championship, which he won after defeating Seth Rollins at WWE's Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
The WWE Universal Championship debuted in 2016 and was first held by Finn Balor. The title has also been held by such wrestlers as Brock Lesnar and Goldberg. It's one of three major championships in the WWE alongside Raw's WWE Championship and NXT's NXT Championship.
