#6 Brock Lesnar vs Samoa Joe
In what was a repeat of their battle at Great Balls of Fire, Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe put on an incredible show for the people of Detroit!
Lesnar's 'advocate' Paul Heyman got on the mic before the match and hyped up his client, and before the bell was rung, Joe got a few kicks and punches on Lesnar and took the initiative in the contest.
Joe was at his aggressive best and showed why he deserved another shot at the title. "The Samoan Submission Specialist" took the match to the outside and landed a few blows; he then hit Lesnar with a few punches and with a fans behind me with a chorus of 'Joe, Joe' shouts, Joe was truly in the ascendancy.
But Lesnar recovered and landed a few suplexes to get back into the game. Joe countered another suplex by landing the Coquina Clutch on the Universal Champion, and Lesnar almost passed out before getting a foot on the rope to break the clutch.
Lesnar got back into the match with another suplex and then finishing Joe off with an F-5, and getting the three count.
Result: Brock Lesnar defeats Samoa Joe to retain Universal Championship
