WWE Crown Jewel 2019: Results, Highlights
The 'Fiend' is the new Universal Champion
After superkicking The Fiend off the stage, who landed straight into the area consisting of electrical equipment, Rollins once again goes after his nemesis. But HOLY SMOKES! The Fiend is back up! He locks in the Mandible Claw, then hits Sister Abigail on the floor. Count to 3 and OH MY GOD YESSSSS! The Fiend Bray Wyatt IS THE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION!
Rollins in trouble
Here we go!
Very surprised they let Bray Wyatt carry that lantern in Saudi Arabia. 10 minutes into a match that cannot be stopped for any reason and still no 'fight forever' chant.
Next Up: The 'Fiend 'vs Seth Rollins
Its gonna get really dark in Riyadh now. Bray Wyatt vs Seth Rollins and this match "cannot be stopped for any reason," and there must be a winner!
Team Hogan def. Team Flair in Saudi Arabia
Roman Reigns with a little help from his friends as he delivers the spear to Randy Orton. Once again Hogan beats Flair. Next Up: The 'Fiend' goes after Seth Rollins in Saudi Arabia
Huge Cheers for Roman Reigns
The love Saudi’s have for Reigns is insane, this is the loudest they’ve been since the start of the PPV
Nakamura and Gable start the match and Gable with a belly to belly on Nakamura and then another. What a start!
Natalya with the discus clothesline...and the Sharpshooter is locked in! Natalya drags Lacey back to the middle...and Lacey taps! Natalya wins! Natalya def. Lacy Evans in first ever womens match in Saudi Arabia.
AJ Styles retains US Championship
Hard fought battle for sure as Carillo brought the fight to Styles. But AJ Styles is too good for the rookie. Carillo brought his A game but in the end Styles was better in instint as Aj slammed the door shut with a phenomenal forearm.
Tyson Fury Wins!
Strowman is going for the victory lap again...and this time, the shoulder tackle connects not once, but twice. Tyson with the right hand out of nowhere! And Braun Strowman is out on the outside! That right hand did it! Strowman can't get back in the ring at the count of ten, and Tyson Ring wins by count-out! After the match, Braun Strowman hits Tyson Fury with a running powerslam before heading to the back ! Tyson Fury had a better wrestling match than Cain Velasquez
Mansoor beats Cesaro
Mansoor counters the gut wrench superplex with a Sunset Flip Powerbomb off the top! And he hits the top rope moonsault! MANSOOR WINS!
Cesaro is now pulling out the heavy artillery...and he's got Mansoor in the crossface! Mansoor gets Cesaro on his shoulders to break the hold...and this is now anybody's match to win!
The Underdog fights back
Mansoor is fighting back! Cesaro nearly sends Mansoor into the referee, then hits a cheap shot! But Mansoor kicks out of the schoolkid pin! And after an enzuigiri, he hits a springboard neckbreaker...but Cesaro gets his foot on the bottom rope! Chants of 'this is awesome' ring around!
Cesaro vs Mansoor
Hometown hero vs the Swiss Cyborg: A huge ovation for Mansoor , who is the first man from the Middle Eastern state to ever sign with WWE. Cesaro dominating from the start as he pushes all the vertebrae on his opponent. He is forcing him to pass out and continues to wear down Mansoor.
The OC win Tag Team World Cup
World Cup match begins
A tag team turmoil in Riyadh with the best from the roster for the ‘World Cup’. Nine-team Tag Team Turmoil match includes the New Day, Heavy Machinery among others.
Cain Velasquez submits to Brock Lesnar!
Lesnar retains his WWE Championship. Lesnar is now taking a chair to Velasquez who is writhing around the ring. Now Rey Mysterio is getting involved on Velasquez’s behalf as he takes the chair to the champion. The Champion leaves the ring wisely.
HERE. COMES. THE BEAST.
Brock Lesnar's pop was actual insanity. He is in the ring and is awaiting the entrance of Cain Velasquez. What a fantastic start awaits us! Their first meeting in nearly a decade.
Lesnar takes Velasquez into the right side and tries to kick him in the gut. Velasquez tries to strike back but Lesnar pins him in the corner again. This could all end quickly.
We have a winner!
Carrillo wins! Just as it looked set to come down to Rowan and Harper for the right to face AJ Styles, Humberto Carrillo stunned them both and emerges as the winner! I did not see that coming.
