The Beard vs. The Beast. WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube channel in which they show the full match between Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan from Survivor Series 2018. It was a “Champion vs. Champion” match, between the Universal Champion and the WWE Champion respectively.
You can see the match in its entirety below:
Thanks to a low-blow behind the back of a frazzled ref, the folk-hero-turned crazy-eyed sadist turned the two-time Universal Champion into a purple, writhing mess. Bryan landed a pair of Running Knees and slowly whittled The Beast Incarnate down until he was able to apply the “Yes!” Lock square in the middle of the ring. It was a remarkable turnaround for Bryan from the early goings of the match, where the five-time World Champion ill-advisedly tried to goad Lesnar into a fight, hoping, perhaps, to rile The Beast up to the point where he might make a mistake.
But much like AJ Styles and so many others before him, “almost” was as close as Daniel Bryan could get. Lesnar writhed free of his opponent’s hold and, despite Bryan briefly countering with a triangle, The Conqueror hoisted the WWE Champion onto his shoulders, hit the F-5 and secured one of the more hard-fought wins of his career. Looking somewhat shell-shocked, Lesnar and Heyman walked back up the ramp in a daze, neither seemingly sure of how The Beast had found himself in a fight nor how he managed to win it.
Lesnar’s dominance in the ring truly is staggering. He has been built as the one to conquer, and is not only one of the most dominant and believe champions of all time, but he is a huge draw and is the reason why many people watch the product. That being said, Daniel Bryan gave it his all and this was a hell of a fight. I loved it.
