Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman booked for vacant Universal Championship at Crown Jewel



A match for the now vacant Universal Championship has been booked for WWE’s Crown Jewel event in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 2nd.

The match was originally scheduled to be a triple threat that would see Roman Reigns defend his Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman in the main event of the show. Plans would change when Reigns would relinquish his title to open today’s show after revealing that his battle with leukemia has returned. We are now looking at a one on one affair between Lesnar and Strowman for the title vacated by Reigns.
