2 Reasons why Brock Lesnar vs Cain Velasquez is a good idea and 2 reasons why it isn't
WWE will return to Saudi Arabia at the end of October, as the second edition of Crown Jewel is set to take place. With the pay-per-view only two weeks away, WWE has finalized several huge matches for the show.
WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will put the title on the line against Cain Velasquez, who made his WWE debut on FOX's SmackDown premiere. After Lesnar's emphatic win over Kofi Kingston, the newly crowned WWE Champion was confronted by Velasquez, who came seeking revenge for his friend Rey Mysterio. Velasquez put his hands on Lesnar, but 'The Beast' managed to escape the ring. Subsequently, an official match between Velasquez and Lesnar was announced for Crown Jewel.
Let's examine two reasons why Lesnar vs Velasquez is a good idea and two reasons why it isn't.
#2. Why It Isn't: Cain Velasquez is put in the main event way too early
Cain Velasquez will compete for the first time in WWE, and he will be getting a shot at the company's most coveted prize. There is a possibility that Velasquez could win the WWE Championship in his very first match.
Prior to his WWE debut, Velasquez competed in two AAA shows. While Velasquez looked extremely impressive in the squared circle, it still might be too soon. Even Ronda Rousey, undoubtedly the most popular female UFC fighter in history, wasn't in the main event scene immediately following her WWE debut.
Velasquez is certainly an established name in the world of MMA, but not every WWE fan is acquainted with the former UFC Heavyweight Champion. Many Superstars perform in NXT before making their way to the main roster, ensuring that they learn the intricate facets of professional wrestling before challenging under the bright lights of main roster main events. Velasquez will make his WWE in-ring debut at a major pay-per-view event, against WWE's most dominant Superstar, for WWE's most illustrious prize. That's a lot of pressure for anyone, even an athlete as decorated as Velasquez.
