In a shocking turn of events, Daniel Bryan is now the new WWE Champion. Bryan defeated AJ Styles on this week’s SmackDown LIVE in maliciously heelish fashion to become the new champion.
After Styles accidentally knocked out referee Charles Robinson, Daniel Bryan hit him below the belt and left him laying. Soon after, Bryan hit the running knee and pinned Styles to once again become the WWE Champion.
After the match, Bryan kept attacking Styles until he was out unconscious. Bryan will now face the Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series come Sunday.
