Goldberg then hit The Fiend with a Jackhammer to win the match and become the new Universal Champion. Goldberg has ended The Fiend's reign of terror on the WWE.

The Fiend, after Goldberg celebrated with the Universal Championship, stood right back up and stared down the new champion before the lights went out and he escaped.

Smackdown Women's Champion Bayley defended her title against Naomi. This was the first time ever a Women's Championship was defended in Saudi Arabia.

Naomi brought the fight to Bayley using her acrobatic and innovative offense. Naomi was even able to survive Bayley's finishing maneuver, the Bayley to Belly.

Naomi attempted a Moonsault but the champion was able to dodge the attack. Bayley then wrapped Naomi's leg inside her T-shirt and slammed her head into the mat to retain the Smackdown Women's Championship.
