BREAKING: Major Title Change And Heel Turn On WWE 'Smackdown' Forces Change To 'Survivor Series' Match

The final stop on the road to WWE Survivor Series certainly provided a newsworthy two hours, as this week’s Smackdown Live featured the announcement of two major PPV match changes following the events which transpired on the show.
As noted, Becky Lynch suffered an injury during the invasion angle on Raw this week, and WWE confirmed on Smackdown that the Women’s Champion suffered a “broken face” and will not be competing against Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series as planned. In Lynch’s place facing the Raw Women’s Champion will be former Smackdown Women’s Champion and Lynch foe Charlotte Flair.

The second major event which transpired on WWE Smackdown tonight left many fans puzzled heading into Survivor Series. It was announced earlier in the night that Daniel Bryan would be challenging AJ Styles for the WWE Title in the main event of the show, and the bout was indeed action-packed, akin to the last title match the two had prior to WWE Crown Jewel.

Much to the surprise of the fans in St. Louis, Bryan was able to successfully defeat AJ Styles for the Title to become the new WWE Champion.
The title change has major Survivor Series implications, as Bryan will now be facing The Beast and Universal Champion Brock Lesnar in a Champion vs Champion match at the PPV on Sunday night. Going into Smackdown Live this week, the bout was set to feature Lesnar vs Styles.

Despite all that occurred on Smackdown tonight, the WWE Title change was not the final surprise in store for fans, as Daniel Bryan appeared to turn heel on AJ Styles following his title win. The end of the show tonight saw Bryan pummel Styles in a post-match beatdown before standing tall over his downed opponent with his newly won WWE Title hoisted high above his head.
Following the events which transpired on Smackdown this week, below is the updated and likely final card for WWE Survivor Series taking place this Sunday night in Los Angeles.
-Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. WWE Champion Daniel Bryan
-Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair

WATCH: Becky Lynch Bloodied As Smackdown Women Invade WWE Raw

WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch continues to ramp up the momentum as she heads into WWE Survivor Series this weekend. Lynch will be facing WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at the PPV, while the women of the Blue Brand will face the women of the Red Brand in a 5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match.
During tonight’s episode of WWE Raw, Becky Lynch did not wait until Sunday to take the fight to the women of Monday nights, as she surprise attacked Ronda Rousey and locked the “Rowdy” one in the Disarmher submission hold.

Lynch’s attack on Ronda Rousey was not the only statement the Lasskicker made on Raw, however, as she then lead the women of Smackdown in a surprise attack of the women of Raw who were already in the ring.

Ronda Rousey attempted to make a comeback in the final moments of the segment, but Lynch’s prior attack was too much for Rousey to handle, and Lynch was able to ground the Raw Champ after a steel chair shot.

At some point during the chaos on the Raw, Becky Lynch was left with a bloody nose, and by the end of the segment she was sporting a bloody face which she seemed to enjoy more than disdain. As of this writing, the severity of Lynch’s injury is unknown.

Social Media Reacts To Vince McMahon And TruthTV Segment On WWE 'SmackDown 1000'

This week’s historic WWE Smackdown 1000 special kicked off with the new, unlikely pairing of R-Truth and Carmella hosting an episode of Truth TV featuring special guest Stephanie McMahon.
It did not take long for the segment, which was filled with dance breaks, to devolve into Stephanie McMahon praising herself as the original General Manager of the Blue Brand.

The segment also featured special appearances by current Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon, and an eventual appearance by Shane and Stephanie’s father, Vince McMahon.
The social media world has since reacted to the Truth TV segment this week, and you can check out some of the comments below.

Before the segment was able to turn into sibling rivalry between Shane and Stephanie McMahon, Shane thanked the fans in attendance in Washington for supporting Smackdown throughout the years. Shane then welcomed Stephanie to the “A” show, a claim with which Stephanie took exception, labelling her brand, Monday Night Raw, as the true “A” show and flagship show in WWE.
Vince McMahon’s music finally hit and the WWE Chairman and CEO made his long-awaited return to Smackdown Live to silence his waring children.

LOVE the rub R Truth got in the opening segment last night. #TruthTV is truly one of the most over things going today.#SD1000 pic.twitter.com/2p8ZO1IBgM

Once Vince hit the ring, he reminded Shane and Stephanie that the fans in attendance do not want to see the respective Commissioners bicker, but instead want to be entertained. After Stephanie McMahon took a shot at her father’s age by telling the WWE Universe that Vince was wearing his hearing aid in the ring, Vince put an end to the segment by calling for one final dance break featuring himself, Truth and Carmella.

The segment concluded with WWE Champion AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan hitting the ring for their big tag team match against The Usos. As noted, Bryan will be challenging Styles for the WWE Title at the upcoming Crown Jewel PPV taking place on November 2nd in Saudi Arabia.

Injured WWE Star Gives Huge Update On In-Ring Return Plus The Latest On Erick Rowan's Injury Status

WWE star Fandango is currently out of action with a torn labrum, and has not competed in a WWE ring since July of this year. Following the injury, The Fashion Police team member underwent surgery, and according to a new post on social media, he is halfway through his recovery process. Given Fandango has been out since July, his latest update would mean he is about three months away from an in-ring return.
“Half way back to the ring babes. Thanks for all the well wishes. Fandango from wrestling”, Fandango noted on Instagram.

Meanwhile, one half of the former WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champion The Bludgeon Brothers, Erick Rowan, is also sidelined with an injury.
During his match against The New Day at WWE SummerSlam this year, Rowan suffered a biceps injury which later required surgery.
