Daniel Bryan shocked the WWE Universe last Tuesday by capturing the WWE Championship once again on SmackDown Live.

But it wasn't the win in general that got people talking - it was the manner in which he did it.

A low-blow to AJ Styles followed by a Running Knee confirmed the start of his fifth reign as a WWE World Champion, and cemented his heel turn by repeatedly booting the Phenomenal One in the face multiple times after the bout.

Bryan was supposed to captain Team SmackDown in a five-on-five elimination match at Survivor Series against Team Raw, but the title win set up another huge match for him instead - against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.

It was a first-time-ever bout between the two superstars, and one the WWE Universe couldn't wait for.

Bryan tried to antagonise the Beast Incarnate in the early stages of the match with his new arrogant persona, but once Lesnar got his hands on him, there was only one way it was going.

And the match started to form a familiar pattern that most Lesnar matches do nowadays - suplex and repeat.

Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar were involved in a hard-hitting match at Survivor Series, with Lesnar coming out on top.

This was a major worry for WWE fans as well, with Bryan's past neck issues it was a major talking point once the match was actually confirmed, and it wasn't easy to watch.

Just look at the landings - that's brutal.

It could be a case of Bryan just selling the move impeccably well, but you have to feel that he's taking unnecessary risks when he had to have surgery on the same area less than five years ago.

And it seemed that many were in the same boat when it came to worrying about the health and well-being of the American Dragon.

Despite all the concerns, it seemed like Bryan was all fine in the end despite the early concern, as he mounted a comeback, but in the end Lesnar indeed got the win via an F5.

But it left fans wanting more, with Bryan and Lesnar both pulling out a great match, and if DB can keep healthy, maybe it will happen one more time down the line.
