Brock Lesnar made his return to WWE this summer and challenged Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. After Reigns' match against John Cena at SummerSlam, Lesnar confronted the Tribal Chief.
Following the back-and-forth between the two men, the highly awaited Lesnar vs. Reigns match was scheduled for Crown Jewel, which was held on 21st October, 2021.
During WWE's latest show in Saudi Arabia, Lesnar lost to the Universal Champion and Reigns once again successfully retained his strap and left Crown Jewel as the WWE Universal Champion.
