• Reason Behind Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez Being Very Short

As seen at WWE Crown Jewel 2019 pay-per-view in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar made Cain Velasquez tap out to the Kimura Lock to retain the WWE Championship in just 2 minutes & 10 seconds.

According to the Wrestling Observer, the match was kept short because Cain’s knee is in bad shape and he’s set to undergo surgery soon:

“Velasquez’s knee was worse than expected. The idea was always for a short match, with the Paul Heyman style Goldberg match lay out of big moves, but with Velasquez’s knee in such bad shape, they changed it to a match where nothing much happened.”

Velasquez is still expected to compete at a WWE Live Event later this month, where he’ll team up with Rey Mysterio to face the team of Drew McIntyre & Andrade.
