A new match has been announced for the upcoming WWE Survivor Series 2019 PPV.
On Friday’s episode of SmackDown on FOX, the company confirmed that Bray Wyatt will make his next title defense as Universal Champion against Daniel Bryan.
This match was expected as Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that the match was on the books to take place at the show.
This will mark Bray Wyatt’s first title defense and Bryan’s first opportunity to become the Universal Champion. Bryan lost the WWE Title at WrestleMania 35 earlier this year to Kofi Kingston.
Wyatt attacked Bryan in an interview segment to start their program last week on SmackDown.
It’s been reported that original plans called for Bryan to be part of the Triple Threat Match with NXT North American Champion Roderick Strong and WWE United States Champion AJ Styles at this show but plans changed.
WWE presents the Survivor Series pay-per-view event on Sunday, November 24, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena that will air on the WWE Network. WWE will be announcing more matches for this show in the coming days.
