• Vince McMahon Has A Crazy Idea For WrestleMania 36 Match
As we noted a few days back, Alex McCarthy of TalkSport reported the following two names could end up facing WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 36:
– Cain Velasquez
– Tyson Fury
Lesnar and Cain are 1-1 (in UFC & WWE), so a rubber match would make sense. However, there are better chances of Fury ending up facing Lesnar if he wins his next Boxing match:
“If Tyson Fury beats Deontay Wilder to become the WBC Heavyweight Champion of the world, the allure of having a Boxing World Champion face Lesnar is expected to be too much for Vince McMahon.”
Brock Lesnar vs. Tyson Fury was originally discussed for WWE Crown Jewel 2019, but WWE ended up doing Lesnar vs. Velasquez when WWE was able to sign Velasquez to a deal.
In an update to this situation, Slice Wrestling is reporting that there have been discussions of doing Brock Lesnar vs. Tyson Fury vs. Cain Velasquez for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36.
The reason behind this triple threat match would be the idea that Vince McMahon would be able to promote “WWE vs. Boxing vs. UFC” for the first time ever.
While most wrestling fans wouldn’t be interested in seeing this match, it would still end up gaining mainstream media attention and that’s what Vince wants.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
