WWE has a lot of money and they apparently want to use some of it to sign Cain Velasquez to a deal. They really want to set up a match against Brock Lesnar and they started building that feud last night.
During the season premiere of Raw, Paul Heyman cut a promo after Brock Lesnar destroyed Rey Mysterio and Dominick. He said to blame Vince McMahon for booking Lesnar when he’s in “fight mode.”
Dave Meltzer revealed during Wrestling Observer Radio that even though they don’t have Velasquez signed, this promo was intended to begin a rivalry with The Beast Incarnate.
“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.”
Cain Velasquez has one more match to wrestle for AAA in Los Angeles, but then he could theoretically sign with whatever company he wishes. WWE obviously has a plan for the former UFC Heavyweight Champion. Let’s just see if he’s willing to come in.
