WWE Crown Jewel: 5 Reasons why Vince won't allow Cain Velasquez to defeat Brock Lesnar
Wow! Did you imagine reading this news a couple of weeks ago that Crown Jewel 2019 in Saudi Arabia would witness the WWE Champion Brock Lesnar defending his title against the former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez?
Yes, that's exactly how crazy the last few weeks have been for the company as we have witnessed some major changes in every aspect of WWE programming. It was on the debut episode of Friday Night SmackDown on FOX where the Beast Incarnate decimated Kofi Kingston in just 8 seconds to win the title, but what followed next was something no one was expecting!
After the vicious attack by Lesnar on Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik on the season premiere of RAW, Mysterio came back with massive backup in the form of the guy who defeated Lesnar inside the UFC Octagon in a first-round TKO and took away his UFC Heavyweight title.
After a week of speculation, the company has finally announced a match between the two at the upcoming Saudi Arabia PPV with the WWE Championship on the line. But will Vince McMahon allow Cain Velasquez to defeat his Beast inside a WWE ring? In this article, I present to you five reasons why he won't!
#5 It's most probably another big-money match to attract the Saudi crowd
Ever since Cain made his debut on SmackDown last week, there was a lot of speculation as to when would WWE book this mega match between these two supreme athletes. With even WrestleMania 36 being considered as an option by some fans, WWE decided to throw a curveball by announcing the match for Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia in less than three weeks from now.
Another blockbuster match announced for the show is that between Braun Strowman and the boxing star Tyson Fury. One can't help but notice the company's attempts to get more mainstream attention towards the product, which makes it more unlikely for Lesnar to lose the title to Cain. The match might just be a big-money bout planned to attract the Saudi crowd as well as international viewers.
