WWE fans are angry after Brock Lesnar became Universal Champion again

He and his D-Generation X partner, Triple H, faced off against the Brothers of Destruction, Kane and The Undertaker, for the first time in WWE history.

WWE's mega-controversial Crown Jewel show has now come and gone, and to the surprise of absolutely no-one, the various scandals and PR misfires surrounding the event ultimately turned out to be far more interesting than the stunningly bland show itself. The WWE recently signed a 10-year business contract with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and after hosting the Greatest Royal Rumble earlier in the year, they were looking to go big with the WWECrown Jewel event on Friday.

A Tag Team championship match between The Bar (Sheamus, Cesaro and Big Show) and The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods) ended with The Bar retaining their title. AJ Styles retained his WWE Championship by defeating Samoa Joe.

The showpiece bout featured the return of Shawn Michaels.

However, with Reigns revealing his battle with leukemia and subsequently relinquishing the Universal Championship, WWE announced a singles match between Strowman and Lesnar to crown a new champion.

In the semifinal stage, The Miz triumphed over Mysterio while Ziggler beat Seth Rollins.

Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon then defeated Ziggler to win the World Cup Tournament.

While the booking decisions were baffling, the in-ring performances when given time were wonderful.
