A major title change just went down moments ago on Smackdown Live.
Daniel Bryan defeated AJ Styles to become the new WWE Champion, ending Styles’ year long reign as champion in the company days before Survivor Series.
The finish of the match saw Styles accidentally bump the referee. This setup a low blow by Bryan while the referee was down, followed by the running knee and pinfall.
This now means that Daniel Bryan will be facing Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at this Sunday’s Survivor Series in a Champion vs. Champion match.
After the match concluded, Bryan attacked Styles, appearing to turn heel.
