As for the rest of the show; Brock Lesnar won the vacant Universal Championship after what essentially amounted to a squash match with Braun Strowman, who was heavily expected to win.

Hulk Hogan made his return to a WWE event after a three-year suspension to kick off the show in what was the first of a series of shocks throughout a show which had courted controversy before it had even started.

The Heartbreak Kid teamed with Triple H in a D-Generation X reunion to take on the Brothers of Destruction, Kane and Undertaker.
