• Another Return Confirmed For Royal Rumble 2020
It looks like WWE Hall of Famer Edge returning at Royal Rumble 2020 isn’t the only return that’s going to take place at this upcoming PPV event.
During an interview with The Sun, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez confirmed that he’s going to be a part of the Men’s Royal Rumble 2020 match.
Below is what Velasquez said:
“Think I’m doing it, right, I think so.
I can win it, hell yeah, that’s my mentality for everything. For everyone as well, that is how your mentality has to be. I’m going in to win this thing.”
When asked about the possibility of facing Brock Lesnar once again during the Royal Rumble match, Cain had the following to say:
“I just have to keep pushing forward. I am never going to stop fighting to go out there and beat him again.”
Cain Velasquez was last seen on WWE programming at Crown Jewel 2019 PPV, where he lost to Brock Lesnar in a WWE Championship match.
