In what was perhaps one of the greatest PPV's of this year, WWE definitely exceeded expectations by ending the night with Daniel Bryan Vs. Brock Lesnar.

While many fans and critics suggested this match to be a punishment for the Beard for skipping Crown Jewel, the company did just the opposite and brought the house down with it's booking.

The WWE Champion took Brock Lesnar to his absolute limits and made the match even more interesting with his offensive grappling abilities.

Considering that this always a dream match for us all, the match was solid in all departments and solidified Survivor Series 2018 as one of the best shows of the year.

But, why did Bryan take the Beast Incarnate to his limits while everyone else expected it to be a Daniel Bryan mauling? It seems there is more to the story than meets the eye.

So, without further ado, let's dive deep and analyze the five biggest reasons why WWE wanted Daniel Bryan to push Brock Lesnar to his limits.

#1 To establish the insanely 'villainous' side of Daniel Bryan

One of the biggest reasons why the creative match presented this match the way they did was to solidify Daniel Bryan as an insanely 'villainous' heel.

His WWE Championship victory against A.J. Styles shocked the world after the Beard turned heel and got the job done, in order to represent the blue brand at Survivor Series.


Ever since the start of the main event, Daniel Bryan played his heel role to perfection, as he mocked the crowd and Brock Lesnar whilst bringing his offensive side to full display.

Since Brock Lesnar will continue to follow his part-time schedule, the Leader of the Yes Movement would return to the blue brand with much more momentum than he already has.

Considering that Bryan's face run was becoming pretty stagnant, his new villainous side catapulted him to bigger heights and made him an even more dangerous WWE Champion.
