Brock Lesnar went on a rampage on this past Monday night during the season premiere of WWE Raw in Phoenix, Arizona. He appeared cutting Rey Mysterio’s promo short and thereby ambushing him with several F-5s. His son Dominick also suffered a vicious beatdown and probably ended up on a local medical facility. Per Paul Heyman, it was Vince McMahon’s fault that he booked The Beast Incarnate on the show just four days before his mega match with Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship on Smackdown.
But there may be deeper meaning lying behind the sudden ambush of Brock Lesnar towards Rey Mysterio. Paul Heyman mentioned during his promo that his client is in a ‘fight mode’ that may have signified a rumored fight against a former UFC superstar.
Rumors are up on the internet suggesting that WWE is intending to book a match between Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez in the near future. Dave Meltzer revealed during Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is yet to sign the former UFC Heavyweight Champion to a contract. But the beatdown on Mysterio might already have set the foundation for this future match,
“Okay, so that promo he talked about tough guys and mixed martial arts and fighters… that was a promo for Cain [Velasquez] now, whether that’s gonna end up happening.”
“The whole segment with Rey and everything, you beat up the Mexican and the Mexican superhero badass comes in, that’s kinda where the idea was behind everything. Cain has not signed either so they have an idea. Obviously it’s Brock and Cain and this stuff was in that direction, but it may end up not happening, but that’s the destination in theory that this is headed toward.”
Velasquez is yet to become a free agent as he will have to perform in one more match under the AAA banner in Los Angeles. After this, he will have to choose between AEW and WWE as both the promotions are reportedly willing to sign him in a contract.
