Daniel Bryan won the WWE Championship during the go-home show to for SmackDown Live. This not only ended AJ Styles’ reign as WWE Champion at 371 days, but it also meant a change to the Survivor Series card.
Now Brock Lesnar will face Daniel Bryan in a champion vs champion match we didn’t see coming. You’ve got to think that WWE made this move to give fans a fresh match since Ronda Rousey vs Becky Lynch was 86’ed, but now they’re pulling the trigger on their supposed WrestleMania main event of Charlotte Flair vs Rousey to Survivor Series.
WWE cameras caught up with Daniel Bryan following his WWE Championship win and a newly heel Daniel Bryan wasn’t as blown away with the moment as he was when he won as a total babyface at WrestleMania XXX. But it looks like he was still enjoying himself.
Bryan got the typical new champion treatment with an official photoshoot following SmackDown Live. It’s interesting that on a night neither Triple H or Vince McMahon was in the building, Daniel Bryan becomes WWE Champion again.
