WWE officially announced that Brock Lesnar will be taking on Roman Reigns for the Universal championship at the upcoming Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
Before Reigns takes on Lesnar however, he will have to defend the title against Demon Finn Balor at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on September 26, so assuming that goes in favor of the leader of the Bloodline, then an angry Brock Lesnar will be awaiting on the other side of the world.
Crown Jewel will take place on Thursday, October 21, starting at 1PM ET on the WWE Network and Peacock. This is the first WWE show in Saudi since February 2020 and is part of the company’s 10-year deal with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
This is the second time that Lesnar and Reigns will battle each other in Saudi. They had a cage match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event in April 2018 which Lesnar won, retaining the Universal title.
