Sunday’s Survivor Series, which saw Raw, SmackDown and for the first time, NXT, being pitted against each other, culminated with the black and gold brand emerging supreme, from the 'main roster', following their TakeOver War Games a day earlier. The evening saw some stellar action from Lio Rush, Roman Reigns, Rhea Ripley, Tommaso Ciampa and Daniel Bryan in separate matches. Rey Mysterio's feud with Brock Lesnar ended with the WWE Champion winning the match despite interference from Mysterio's son Dominick.
The evening saw Universal Champion 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt defeat Daniel Bryan via pinfall to retain the title. Despite the veteran superstar connecting with the crowd with his 'Yes' chants, innumerable dropkicks and stomps to the face, Bryan ultimately lost when Wyatt forced the Mandible Claw on him for the pinfall.
The Men's survivor series saw Roman Reigns (SmackDown) emerge supreme by defeating Keith Lee of NXT to become the sole survivor for the Blue Brand.
