At SummerSlam 2018, Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Championship. This was primarily made possible by Braun Strowman’s distraction as he was the Money in the Bank briefcase holder at the time.

Strowman later cashed in his briefcase to challenge Reigns for the title at Hell in a Cell. The match ended in a no contest, as Brock Lesnar returned to tear down the cage and lay waste to both the superstars.

Following Super Show-Down event, a triple threat match between Reigns, Strowman, and Lesnar for the Universal Championship was scheduled for Crown Jewel event.

However, Reigns relinquished his title before the event which led to Lesnar and Strowman battle for the vacated championship.
