Lesnar made his return to the company at last month’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event after Reigns had successfully retained the Universal Title over John Cena in the main event. Lesnar had a staredown with Reigns.
Fast forward to the SmackDown episode at Madison Square Garden, Lesnar threw out the challenge for a match with “The Big Dog.” WWE announced last week that Lesnar would get his wish as he will challenge Reigns for the Universal Title at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event.
BetOnline.com has released the early betting odds for this match and lists Reigns as a -200 favorite over Lesnar, who is priced at +150.
WWE holds the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event on Thursday, October 21, 2021 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia at the King Fahd International Stadium, which will air on Peacock at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT. This is the only official match for the event so far.
