Assuming that the Multi-universe theory is correct, and there are an infinite amount of universes for an infinite amount of possibilities , could there be a possibility to where in another universe (or say even our universe) there are no multi-universes? Would this trump that very idea?
One could conceive of a universe which had no connections to any
other universe except through its creation.
Be a pretty boring place, I would think. But it would get around
the problem you posed.

In the multi-verse theory, a universe does not contain
everything. A universe contains space and time. Space and time do
not contain the universe. It is possible that each universe
contains its own space and time. These do not have to work the same
way as our space and time. Maybe there is something beyond space
and time, beyond space and time. Maybe there is not. If there is,
then it does not have to resemble space and time in any way.
As our perception is limited to the structure of space and time, we
would not have the words to talk about such a thing. This is one of
the greatest problems in research of new things: we do not know how
to describe something that has never been described. There will not
be a word for it in the dictionary. This is why researchers often
use math as a language: you do not need new words to write new equations.

Matt, your question is effectively, "If A is true, what if A is not
true?". There is no scientific answer to that question. If there are no
multiple universes, then there is only one universe. If there are
multiple universes, then there are multiple universes.
Hope this helps,
