WWE 2k14 Universe Mode – Bragging Rights: WWE Championship Fatal Four Way Match Preview
The WWE Championship has been home to some of the classic matches throughout the history of Universe Mode on WWE 2k14. At Bragging Rights the Fatal Four Way match between Ryback, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan has the opportunity to be one of those classics.
Since winning the WWE Championship, Randy Orton has been on a path of redemption against the Authority, with PPV victories over former Authority champion Brock Lesnar and new authority affiliate Ryback. Orton continues to prove Triple H’s remark that Randy isn’t good enough to be champion to be wrong, by knocking off many of the top superstars on Monday Nights, week after week.
Ryback has now been shouldered the burden of carrying the reigns of the Authority and has been given the task of taking down Randy Orton to win the WWE Championship back into the Authority’s control. Ryback, the longest reigning World Heavyweight Champion in WWE Universe Mode history, has been hot and cold in his return to RAW, with the occasional victories over top stars, but the abundance of losses at the same time. Triple H and Paul Heyman have questioned Rybacks ability to be the face of the WWE, so will Ryback accomplish his new objectives?
Roman Reigns recent split from The Shield has amounted in new opportunities to step into a major singles role on RAW. His unsuccessful match against Ryback, left him out of the title picture in the lead up to Payback, but Reigns would soon have the opportunity to redeem himself with a match against Kane. Reigns would go on to defeat Kane to earn his spot in the fatal four way match. Reigns has yet to make an impact as a singles competitor, winning the fatal four way at Bragging Rights would put Reigns on the map and make him an instant singles star on RAW.
Perhaps the unluckiest superstar in the WWE Universe Mode series has been Daniel Bryan. Bryan has never had the opportunity to compete for the WWE Championship in a one on one environment, with his only opportunity being in a six man Elimination Chamber match. Bryan has continued to prove that he is deserving of a top spot on RAW with many major victories on RAW for the past 8 months. Bryan has continued to vocalize his frustrations with the Authority and once again has been snubbed of a one on one opportunity at Bragging Rights. Will Bryan finally get his first singles championship win?
