Brock Lesnar was in phenomenal shape as wrestled his first match in just shy of 19 months at WWE Crown Jewel.

The Beast Incarnate stepped into the ring to face Roman Reigns in Saudi Arabia on Thursday and looked like he hadn’t missed a step as he delivered a fantastic main event in a gripping bout for the Universal Championship.

It was actually Lesnar’s first match in 575 days, with his most recent clash coming at WrestleMania 36 when he lost the WWE Title to Drew McIntyre in front of no fans at the Performance Center.

Looking as ripped as ever, there was never any doubt Brock would be in this kind of shape, but it was still a sight to behold.

He held up his end of the brawl with the Tribal Chief, even with him playing the babyface for the first time in years after a long run on the dark side of WWE’s roster.

In an eventful ending, Lesnar looked to have the match won with an F-5 when the referee was down, and Heyman – whose allegiances have been called into question lately – muddied the waters further.

He tossed the Universal Title into the ring right in between both stars, and simply told one of them to do what needed to be done.

The problem is, we have no idea who the intended target was as the pair scrapped over the belt before The Usos charged to the ring, hit stereo superkicks on Lesnar and left him wide open as Reigns cracked him for the championship for the win.

Heyman stayed true to his pre-match promise of walking in and out with the champ, but he looked visibly shook – so maybe things didn’t quite go to plan.

We’ll definitely find out more on SmackDown on Friday night, when Brock is sure to be first up and chasing revenge against Reigns, The Usos and Heyman.

Elsewhere on the show, Xavier Woods and Zelina Vega won the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments respectively, while Becky Lynch retained the SmackDown Women’s Championship over Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks, and Big E beat Big E to hold onto the WWE Title.

Mansoor beat Mustafa Ali, Edge defeated Seth Rollins inside Hell In A Cell and Goldberg overcame Bobby Lashley after spearing him off the stage, while RK-Bro beat AJ Styles and Omos to keep the Raw Tag Team Titles.
