One of the more anticipated special events in recent memory has been the WWE's event in Saudi Arabia. It is very hard to decide what the best way is to describe this event as it wasn't a PPV but I guess the best way to explain it is a network special. Though a lot of the matches featured were in some way predictable or a continuation of WrestleMania some were a lot better. One of those matches that really hit their stride this time round was the WWE Championship match with AJ Styles & Shinsuke Nakamura. The match at WrestleMania between these two was very lackluster and was no where close to the expectations that where in place. Seeing these two collide again I will say honestly that this match was way better this time around then it was the first time. It is almost like Shinsuke & AJ needed to get hold of their chemistry unfortunately it was at the expense of WrestleMania.
However, this wasn't the biggest surprise of this special event was that Brock Lesnar actually tight roped away from Saudi Arabia with the WWE Universal Title. Now looking at the finish of the match which saw Roman spear Brock through the cage and basically was put over as a tie with Brock getting awarded the win. Though I don't think anything at this point can make Brock look weak, but it does make the title look bad considering the dusty finish. Though a rumor is now going around that Brock will hold onto the Universal Title until June as Vince wants someone to break the title reign set by CM Punk a few years ago.
Hopefully this means that Brock will have at least one more defense before breaking the record for the longest modern era reign. The only problem now is that Roman has lost to Brock twice within a month & couldn't possibly fight Brock again without bringing down the title. I don't mean it as a negative to Roman, but having some fresh talent challenge Brock would help in the same way it did last year when Samoa Joe & Braun fought Brock. At this point Brock can maintain his reign for the time being, but I think it would be best to pull Roman from the title picture for the time being and repair his image & if they still do want him to be World Champion. In conclusion the finish of this match put the weakness of Raw's main event picture on display with very few choices left to face Brock as a believable challenger without some of them getting built up which makes way for a very boring title picture, feel like I've heard that somewhere before.
