Reason why Cain Velasquez was pulled from upcoming WWE show in Mexico City



As we wrote about earlier this week, Cain Velasquez was scheduled to team up with Rey Mysterio at the WWE show in Mexico City on November 30th.

Velasquez has been taken off the card but he will still be making an appearance on the show. We previously wrote that reason why his match with Brock Lesnar was so short was because of his knee injury and he will need to get surgery soon. Dave Meltzer reports that is also the reason why he was pulled from the show in Mexico City.

WWE is now advertising the following matches for the show in Mexico City:

That is a pretty loaded line-up.

Velasquez told us that he signed a 3-year deal so you can expect to see him on a regular basis when he returns to action after his knee surgery. I was told that there are plans to do a longer Velasquez vs. Lesnar match at some point.
