Daniel Bryan will have his shot against The Fiend next month.
Bryan won a triple threat match tonight on SmackDown over both King Corbin and The Miz that determined the next challenger for The Fiend’s Universal title.
The match was originally supposed to kick off tonight’s show. However, Roman Reigns interrupted Corbin as he was being carried to the ring and the two ended up in a brawl. Corbin then refused to take part in the match, saying that he was injured.
It was then restarted a second time, this time being a singles match between Miz and Bryan. This ended in a double disqualification when Corbin’s security came to the ring and attacked both men.
By the end of the show, the match had become a triple threat again when Corbin learned that Roman Reigns had been asked to leave the building. However, Reigns came out during the match and took out both Corbin and Dolph Ziggler, who was at ringside. Miz and Bryan continued to wrestle, with Bryan getting the win following a LeBelle lock submission.
Royal Rumble will take place on January 26, 2020 at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.
