Cody Rhodes battled Brock Lesnar for the second time at WWE Night of Champions. The outcome of the match, however, didn’t come in favor of the American Nightmare.

Lesnar returned the following night on RAW to pick up the feud. The Beast took out Cody from the triple threat World Heavyweight Championship tournament and planted him with a huge F5 through the announcer’s table. After the beatdown, Lesnar challenged Cody to a fight at Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia.
