Natalya Defeats Lacey Evans
Natalya and Lacey Evans made history by participating in the first ever women’s wrestling match in Saudi Arabia.
The women were fully dressed, so as to respect the culture. The crowd seemed to buy into the historic nature of the bout, being loud and chanting for both women from the opening bell.
Natalya and Lacey Evans fought a relatively basic wrestling match, but did their best to engage the crowd in the match. While some people looked a little uncomfortable in the crowd watching two women wrestle, most of the crowd were really excited for the match, filling the arena with chants of ‘This is Awesome’ and ‘Holy Sh**’.
Natalya submitted Evans in the sharpshooter to win in a massive moment for women’s wrestling and women’s rights across the world.
Tyson Fury Defeats Braun Strowman via Count Out
Boxing Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury made a grand entrance with pyrotechnics in traditional Saudi Arabian garb to a raucous crowd. Commentator Michael Cole dubbed the fight ‘The Showdown in Saudi’.
Fury attempted to grapple with Strowman to little success. This caused Fury to switch to strikes, but Strowman was keeping Fury as limited in his offense as possible.
The match between the two behemoths would end in disappointing fashion. Fury got to take Strowman out in the ringside area, winning the match via count out. Strowman would attack Fury after the match was over.
Brock Lesnar (c) Defeats Cain Velasquez
The show was opened by what was widely believed to be the main event. Brock Lesnar headed out to the ring right at the start of the show for his WWE title defense against former rival Cain Velasquez.
The match started out slow, but the action picked up quick. However, the match ended just as quickly as it began. Cain Velasquez managed to get Lesnar down with a head kick and proceeded to ground and pound. However, Lesnar grabbed Cain’s arm and got Velasquez to tap to the Kimura lock.
Post-match, Lesnar continued his assault on Cain Velasquez. The beatdown was stopped with the intervention of Rey Mysterio, as Lesnar went scurrying up the ramp with Paul Heyman.
The rest of the show saw The OC pick up a surprise win to crown themselves ‘the best tag team in the world’. Mansoor defeated Cesaro in front of his hometown of Riyadh.
AJ Styles defeated Humberto Carrillo to remain United States Champion after Carrillo became the number one contender for the title on the pre-show.
Team Hogan, captained by Roman Reigns managed to defeat Team Flair, captained by Randy Orton in a 5-on-5 tag match.
The main event saw a new Universal Champion, as ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt won a brutal Falls Count Anywhere match against Seth Rollins.
