Brock Lesnar defeated Cain Velasquez with a Kimura Lock at WWE Crown Jewel. But the match was so quick, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE booked such a quick match because Cain Velasquez is injured.
It was thought that Velasquez could have stem cell operations, but now the idea is that he needs surgery.
At this time there is no word on whether his scheduled tag team match with Rey Mysterio for Mexico City will happen later this month.
“Velasquez’s knee was worse than expected. The idea was always for a short match, with the Paul Heyman style Goldberg match lay out of big moves, but with Velasquez’s knee in such bad shape, they changed it to a match where nothing much happened.”
