WWE Survivor Series 2017 results: Brock Lesnar wins, AJ Styles is the best wrestler in the world

With SmackDown on a three match win streak to take a lead in the battle for brand supremacy, having the Universal champion vs. WWE champion match go on next to last kind of telegraphed the result.

That didn’t matter, especially not for the crowd in Houston’s Toyota Center, who were loud with dueling chants for AJ Styles and Brock Lesnar from the start. Early dominance from The Beast settled things down, and AJ looked out on his feet when took his trip to Suplex City.

The beatdown continued, and at times it was uncomfortable, but it had a purpose. The purpose was, of course, to set-up Davey’s comeback against Goliath. Employing his quickness to land strikes and create some seperation, Styles dodged a running knee, hit a DDT and we had ourselves a fight!

A Phenomenal Forearm over the top rope left both men wiped out on the floor, and then AJ used the steel steps to inflict further damage to Brock’s knee, then leap for another forearm.

Back in the ring, a thrilling nearfall came after a springboard 450 from the WWE champ. A shocked AJ went for the Styles Clash, and Lesnar tried to counter to a F5... but Styles went to the calf-crusher. The Beast was in serious jeopardy, but then he smashed The Phenomenal One’s head to the mat repeatedly until AJ had to let go.

Another Forearm still didn’t end it, so AJ went for another. A weary Lesnar managed to catch Styles on that one, right himself, and hit the F5.

The streak of amazing Styles matches continues, but the outcome was what we expected, and the men’s five-on-five will decide the red vs. blue war.
