The WrestleMania 34 match for WWE Universal Championship between Brock Lesnar and The Roman Reigns, was terrible. The rematch was played in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, at the Greatest Royal Rumble 2018. It was poor in its right, but it also performed the prior title match pointless. The beginning of the match looked like the WrestleMania challenge, with Lesnar repeatedly dishing out penalty to Reigns. The difference was that Reigns was able to counter and hit five spears on Lesnar. It was the fifth spear, though, that sent Lesnar through the side of the cage and onto the floor. Brock Lesner defend his title easily and beat Roman Reigns.
Hate him or love him, Roman Reigns does what is asked of him time and again, and it was no different at Jeddah as well. Reigns, going in as the underdog against Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, consumed four German Suplexes as soon as the bell rang; he endured two F5s before mounting any kind of offence, but he countered with four superman punches and four spears for a couple of near counts. He power bombed Lesnar and could have walked out of the open gate to be the new champion had Paul Heyman not interfered by closing the gate on Reigns. Lesnar’s invincible persona was scaled down when Reigns hit shot after shot with the chair on Lesnar. He was then driven through the cage off a spear, but by Lesnar being out of the cage first, the referee awarded the match to Lesnar.
