• Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez Could Get Delayed
As we have noted before, Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez for the WWE Championship is expected to be the main event of WWE Crown Jewel 2019 PPV, but this match could get delayed.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Cain needs knee surgery (you might have noticed he was wearing a knee brace on SmackDown) and this could put him out of action for a long time depending on what kind of procedure he undergoes:
“They could do Cain [vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36] you know do a one and one, Cain gets the surgery and comes back, but if Cain gets the surgery I’m not sure he’s back — if he gets full reconstructive surgery on that knee…let’s say he gets it in November, he’s missing Mania for sure, not even a chance. Maybe he can get minor surgery and be back.”
