The latest WWE event in Saudi Arabia featured a new champion and World Cup winner.

A total of 12 matches were a part of WWE's Crown Jewel event on Friday (November 2). During the pre-show, Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Rusev to retain the United States Championship. Below are some of the major highlights for the main match card in terms of match winners from Saudi Arabia.

1

Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman

While four titles were on the line at Crown Jewel, just one was given to a new owner. The WWE Universal title was vacated by Roman Reigns ahead of the event, leading to this big match. Ahead of the bout, Baron Corbin hit Braun Strowman with the belt, which led to Brock ultimately winning the Universal title. That gives Brock the belt for another reign, much to the dismay of many fans.

AJ Styles defeated Samoa Joe

Styles came into the match holding the WWE Championship for a nice one-year-and-counting reign. He will now extend that reign, after hitting a Phenomenal Forearm on Joe for the pinfall win. Next up, Styles is headed to Survivor Series to face Brock Lesnar for a rematch of last year's Champion vs Champion match.
