WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will clash against WWE Champion Daniel Bryan this Sunday in a classic Champion vs. Champion match at Survivor Series.
Bryan turned heel this week on SmackDown Live on his road to capturing the WWE Championship. Nobody at home or in the audience saw it coming for it was AJ Styles who was advertised to go head to head with Lesnar at Survivor Series ever since the highly anticipated build-up.
It would have been the second time that The Beast and The Phenomenal One went head to head at Survivor Series, the one night of the year when RAW and SmackDown Superstars compete against each other for brand supremacy.
Skybet has revealed the betting odds for the Lesnar vs. Bryan dream match: Brock is the current favorite with odds of 4/11 while Daniel is the 2/1 underdog.
Usually, there’s a heel vs. face theme in every match that WWE intends to stack the card with, but this dream match seems to be against the trend. Bryan is now a heel and so is Lesnar, The Beast, who has established himself as a selfish, destructive and unstoppable force in WWE.
It’s evident that Bryan will take several suplexes this Sunday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California but the underdog is expected to be okay as WWE can’t possibly afford to lose another top main eventer at this juncture. Roman Reigns, Triple H, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn are all sidelined and WWE needs serious drawing power come WrestleMania 35.
As per speculations, Bryan will turn face for one night at Survivor Series but will again revert to his new heel role by attacking Styles on Tuesday’s show.
What remains in store for the Leader of the YES Movement is yet to be seen, but the heel turn has definitely opened the doors for The Miz to turn babyface and feud for the WWE Championship.
