The hype around Thursday's WWE Crown Jewel at Mohammed Abdu Arena on the Boulevard in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, was focused on the Universal Championship match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.
WWE's two biggest attractions delivered an entertaining and physical style match. But in WWE fashion, they couldn't have a conclusive finish as Reigns needed the help of cousins The Usos and a belt shot to Lesnar's head to retain the belt and cap off a really good show.
Reigns and Lesnar brought the goods. They threw everything at each other, including the kitchen sink. They kicked out of each other's finishing moves. Lesnar hit one more F5 but it knocked into the referee.
With referee Charles Robinson out for the count, Reigns delivered a spear. With Reigns and Lesnar lying on the mat, former advocate of Lesnar and current Special Counsel to Reigns, Paul Heyman, didn't know who to help. He threw the belt into the ring and landed in between them. A tug of war ensued. Lesnar got the belt and Reigns' cousins and members of The Bloodline, The Usos, hit a double superkick and Reigns hit him with the championship for the pin. Obviously, the story will continue, but it was a poor way to end the event.
Here is what happened at WWE Crown Jewel.
