The Fiend defended his Universal Championship for the first time at Survivor Series and he proved that he is unbeatable under the red lights when he was able to come out on top and overcome the threat of Daniel Bryan.
Bryan was easily seen as The Fiend’s toughest test to date, but once again The Fiend was able to pick up the win when he locked in The Mandible Claw and forced Bryan to pass out and the referee then counted the pin when his shoulders hit the mat.
While The Fiend continued his Undefeated Streak as part of Survivor Series, sadly NXT UK Champion Walter‘s streak came to an end when he was pinned by Drew McIntyre and became the first man eliminated in the tradition Survivor Series men’s match.
Walter has been undefeated throughout his NXT reign but wasn’t protected as part of this men’s match that saw Braun Strowman counted out so that he remained protected instead. The men’s elimination match came down to Keith Lee and Roman Reigns after Lee was able to eliminate Seth Rollins following a Fireman’s Carry Splash.
What followed was an exciting back and forth between Roman Reigns and Keith Lee before Reigns was able to secure the win for his team and take the tally up to SmackDown 2, NXT 3 and Raw 1. There was a moment in the match where the referee counted the three for Reigns but it didn’t count and WWE showed a replay that made it look as though the error never happened.
After the match, Reigns and Lee stood toe to toe and Reigns then fist-bumped the NXT star as a sign of respect after Keith Lee put up quite the fight in a quest to ensure that NXT came out on top as part of their first Survivor Series event.
