You might want to lock that one down. Last week’s SmackDown was certainly a bit deal with a host of wrestlers and personalities making big time appearances on a major show. You don’t get to see something like that very often, much like seeing Brock Lesnar as scared as he was when Cain Velasquez came to the ring to end the show. However, WWE doesn’t have all of the details covered quite yet.
Velasquez was recently interviewed by ESPN MMA, where he talked about his involvement with WWE. During the interview, which was released on Saturday so things may have changed since then, Velasquez mentioned that he is currently not signed to a contract with WWE, though he hopes to sign a deal to work with the company soon. At the moment, Velasquez is rumored to face Lesnar at Crown Jewel on October 31.
Velasquez had a lot to say here. Check out the interview, plus his debut on SmackDown:
Opinion: This is one of those things where I believe there is no contract on paper but I would be stunned to see WWE agree to something like this without some kind of a deal, hopefully more than a handshake, just in place. I know the show is in less than a month, but I would certainly hope that WWE would not run the risk of having someone steal Velasquez away with a contract before the match.
Do you think Velasquez will face Lesnar at Crown Jewel? How do you see the match going? Let us know in the comments below.
