AJ Styles retained the WWE Championship against Samoa Joe and The Bar also kept hold of the SmackDown tag-team titles thanks to some well-timed interference from The Big Show in their defence against The New Day.
WWE fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment at the formulaic match and the overall result.
In a one-on-one match, AJ Styles will look to defend his WWE Championship against Samoa Joe.
The World Cup contest, featuring The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Jeff Hardy and five other contenders, ended in freakish fashion when SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon won even though he was not competing. In the Smackdown corner, Jeff Hardy will face The Miz while Rey Mysterio will be renewing his rivalry with Randy Orton in the first round.
As yet, Lesnar is still contracted to WWE despite rumours linking him to a heavyweight showdown with UFC Champion Daniel Cormier. It's one of the major reasons why the company continued on with the event on Friday despite harsh criticism from fans, the media, and even members of the USA government.
This is a pretty bold move on Riddle's part but only time will tell if this dream match could become a reality in a WWE ring since we never got to see it in the Octagon.
