Even after all of the controversy, WWE returned to Saudi Arabia for the second time this year.  Hulk Hogan returned to a WWE event for the first time in some years, Shawn Michaels returned to the ring, Brock Lesnar was back in action and the Samoa Joe/AJ Styles saga continued. Daniel Bryan and John Cena were written out of their matches with the storylines behind them due to the controversy with the country. Shane McMahon replaced a superstar in the World Cup Finals due to a kayfabe injury. With that being said, the results of tonight's show are as followed:

-Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Rusev to retain the US Championship

-World Cup Tournament: Rey Mysterio defeated Randy Orton to advance

-World Cup Tournament: The Miz defeated Jeff Hardy to advance

-World Cup Tournament: Seth Rollins defeated Bobby Lashley to advance

-World Cup Tournament: Dolph Ziggler defeated Kurt Angle to advance

-The Bar defeated The New Day to retain the Smackdown Tag Team Championships

-World Cup Semi-Finals: The Miz defeated Rey Mysterio to advance

-World Cup Semi-Finals: Dolph Ziggler defeated Seth Rollins to advance

-AJ Styles defeated Samoa Joe to retain the WWE Championship

-Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman to win the vacant Universal Championship

-Shane McMahon defeated Dolph Ziggler to win the World Cup

Overall, the pay-per-view was pretty bad. A lot of these matches made a lot of the Superstars look pretty bad. But it may be a good storyline leading up to Survivor Series.
