There will be hell to pay on the post-Crown Jewel edition of WWE Friday Night SmackDown this week.
Following the third event in WWE Crown Jewel chronology at the Mohammed Abdu Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this week, the official WWE website published an article with fallout from the highly-anticipated main event for the WWE Universal Championship.
After suffering the loss in the headline bout of the special event, which streamed live via the WWE Network and Peacock on Thursday afternoon, Brock Lesnar is vowing to “beat Roman Reigns senseless” at SmackDown on Friday night.
WWE.com released the following announcement after the show wrapped up:
Brock Lesnar promises to “beat Roman Reigns senseless” at SmackDown
In the wake of Universal Champion Roman Reigns’ controversial victory over Brock Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel, The Beast made no secret about what his response will be.
As he was leaving Saudi Arabia, Lesnar was quoted as saying, “The moment I arrive at SmackDown, I will beat Roman Reigns senseless.”
Lesnar’s emphatic statement came after The Head of the Table used questionable methods during the Universal Title Match at WWE Crown Jewel while the official was down.
First, Reigns got an assist from The Usos, then clobbered Lesnar with the Universal Title to retain the gold.
