SmackDown kicked off this week with AJ Styles in the ring where he cut a promo on Brock Lesnar. Then Paul Heyman showed up in the crowd and he mentioned that AJ Styles is the 2nd best pro wrestler in the world because Daniel Bryan is the best.
AJ Styles said that he made Daniel Bryan tap out a couple weeks ago and seemed very proud of this fact. Then Daniel Bryan came down and told AJ not to mention his name again or he would punch him in the face. This provoked Styles into mentioning Daniel Bryan’s name once again just out of fun this time and then Daniel Bryan attacked him.
They did a pull-apart, but eventually, Shane McMahon booked a WWE Championship match for later on in the night.
The match took each competitor to their limit. Then near the ending of the match, the referee took an accidental shot and then Daniel Bryan nailed a low blow on AJ followed by a running knee to win the title.
After the match was over, Daniel Bryan continued his assault on AJ Styles as he stomped away at the former champion. So we have a new WWE Champion and it’s Daniel Bryan. But he’s now a heel.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
