WWE's fourth foray into Saudi Arabia was perhaps the company's most star-studded event there till now. Bouts in WWE Crown Jewel 2019 featured the Boxing's heavyweight champion Tyson Fury taking on Braun Strowman, former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez fighting WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and the first-ever women's match featuring Natalya and Lacey Evans. The evening also saw the much-awaited rematch between 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt and WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins with an unexpected ending.
Surprisingly, despite all its hype, the evening saw WWE Champion Brock Lesnar defeat Cain Velasquez via submission to retain the title. The match incorporated mixed martial arts style with both superstars brawling with each other. However, Lesnar gained the upper hand by targeting Velasquez's injured knee. Lesnar caught the challenger with a Kimura Lock to earn a tap out and retain the title.
Post the match, Lesnar continued with the hold, prompting Rey Mysterio to scramble in for the save with a chair. He was however laid down with an F5 onto the chair. As Lesnar continued with the attack, Mysterio reentered and beat down Lesnar with another chair forcing him to retreat from the ring.
Later during the show, Mysterio gave a backstage promo where he credited the WWE Champion for the win but promised to make him pay for what Lesnar had done to his son Dominick and their family.
