The fact that Tyson Fury and Braun Strowman are also part of the press conference means that there could also be an announcement when it comes to the match between the two men who ended this week's episode of Monday Night Raw with a brawl. It will take place on the 11th of October. It's believed that Strowman vs. Fury and Velasquez vs. Lesnar will be announced for WWE Crown Jewel at that time. That is the reason why the WWE has remained on top. But an injury may just postpone the mouth-watering bout.
However, the latest reports from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer claimed that the anticipated match could be delayed owing to the issue that Cain Velasquez needs knee surgery.
There's more to the story as Vince McMahon is not impressed with the physique of the former MMA fighter.
Backstage news suggests that WWE had meant to announce Lesnar vs. Velasquez and Tyson Fury vs. Braun Strowman for WWE Crown Jewel as it could garner attention from the mainstream audience just before the WWE Draft begins on Friday night.
"According to a source in WWE, Vince McMahon wants Cain Velasquez to get ripped, if he's going to commit".
Reports revealed that the former UFC Heavyweight Champion was yet to sign a contract with WWE even though he appeared on SmackDown last week and set up a match with Brock Lesnar.
"I'm told Velasquez is really nice and willing to learn". If the physique of Cain remains the same then Lesnar could look like a clear favorite to become the victor, anyway.
Don't miss the action when WWE Crown Jewel emanates from the King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, streaming live on WWE Network on Thursday, Oct. 31, at 8 p.m. AST/1 p.m. ET.
