The Big Red Machine and the Big Red Belt. Over the last few months if not years, Kane has been starting to distance himself from the ring. This includes wrestling far less frequently and making fewer appearances in general. The same is at least somewhat true of Brock Lesnar, who defended his Universal Title against Kane on Saturday night. The match wasn’t exactly well received.

Here’s most of the match.

According to fans who attended the show, the match only lasted about thirty seconds. Lesnar won the match by escaping a chokeslam and hitting an F5 to retain the title. This was Lesnar’s first match since “Royal Rumble 2018” and Kane’s first since losing to Braun Strowman on the January 29 “Monday Night Raw”.

#WWEChicago Match 5: Brock Lesnar def. Kane via F-5 in about 30 seconds.

The Chicago crowd is PISSED at the short match.

Paul Heyman introduced Brock Lesnar as hailing from the “Ultimate Corner” before the match. Both guys are in phenomenal shape.

Opinion: I can’t say I blame them. After paying probably higher ticket prices because Lesnar was on the card, this is the best you get? Lesnar isn’t around very often and to get what is little more than a brawling segment would upset me as well. It doesn’t help Lesnar’s reputation as someone who doesn’t wrestle very often and is just there for the money, which isn’t doing the title any favors.

Kane and Lesnar have already tangled this year.
