Reason why Cain Velasquez match with Brock Lesnar was so short at WWE Crown Jewel

Several readers have asked about the match between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez at Crown Jewel. The match went on early and lasted just over 2 minutes with Lesnar forcing Velasquez to submit.

I was told that the match was so short because Velasquez needs knee surgery and they didn’t want to risk causing further damage. This is something that was known to WWE before he signed his deal.

I don’t know when he is scheduled for surgery but I would presume that it will be happening soon so he can rehab in time for WrestleMania season. There are plans for a rematch at some point. Velasquez has 3 years on his WWE deal so there is no rush to get to the rematch.

Meanwhile, Paul Heyman and Lesnar can brag that Lesnar was able to finally defeat Velasquez, the man who took the UFC title from Lesnar many years ago.
