WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar defeated AJ Styles by pinfall at Survivor Series Sunday night live on the WWE Network in Houston, Texas.
Lesnar went right after Styles right when the bell rang, hitting him with knees to the abdomen and tossing him around the ring. Lesnar taunted Styles, telling him to come at him before catching a kick and clotheslining him to the mat.
Styles worked his way out of the F-5, and used his quickness to get Lensar on the ground, dodging a flying knee and taking out his other leg with a dropkick.
Styles worked Lesnar over, then set up for the 450 splash off the top rope and connected for the two-count. Styles set up for the Styles Clash, but Lesnar reversed into an F-5 attempt. Styles reversed into the Calf Crusher, but Lesnar worked his way out. Styles connected on the Phenomenal Forearm for the two-count. Styles went for it again, but Lesnar caught him and connected on the F-5 for the win.
Lesnar won the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania against Goldberg. Lesnar has successfully defended the title against Samoa Joe at Great Balls of Fire, Joe, Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman at SummerSlam and Strowman at No Mercy.
Styles won the WWE Championship from Jinder Mahal on Smackdown nearly two weeks ago. He lost to Finn Balor at Tables, Ladders and Chairs in an interpromotional match in his last pay-per-view match.
