The WWE Universal Championship match has been announced for Survivor Series with “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt defending the new, blue Universal Title against Daniel Bryan, who Wyatt attacked on Smackdown last week. That led to Bryan challenging Wyatt to the match on Smackdown this week, which Wyatt accepted. It was a good promo exchange with Wyatt making mention of their past when Daniel Bryan turned on Wyatt over five years ago when it looked like Bryan was in the Wyatt Family. I like when they acknowledge history like that.
Here’s a closer look at the blue Universal Title.
In other news on the card, Nikki Cross hasn’t officially joined the women’s Team Smackdown yet. However, Cross got the win for Smackdown against NXT women, so the assumption is that Cross will get that fifth and final spot on the team.
What you see below is likely the final card in terms of the number of matches. It was reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there isn’t a Rusev vs. Bobby Lashley match expected on this card. They are having their big match at TLC in December.
Here’s the updated lineup for Survivor Series on November 24 in Chicago.
