Cain Velasquez has discussed his match with Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel 2019, sharing his honest thoughts on the bout.
Velasquez made his WWE in-ring debut at the October 2019 Saudi Arabia show, challenging for Brock Lesnar’s WWE Championship.
The ex-UFC stars didn’t have a long match, with Lesnar forcing Velasquez to tap out less than 90 seconds in.
This was Velasquez’ only televised WWE bout prior to his release from the company in April 2020.
Prior to their WWE bout, Lesnar and Velasquez had clashed as MMA rivals. Velasquez notably defeated Lesnar via TKO to win the UFC Heavyweight Title at UFC 121 in 2010.
Speaking on K100 with Konnan & Disco, Velasquez noted that planning his wrestling bout with Lesnar was a little uncomfortable.
Noting that things remained professional, Velasquez said:
“Yeah, professional and I would say it was a little uncomfortable (planning the match with Brock Lesnar).
“I’m just so new to the wrestling world but everyone that I’ve worked with has been amazing as far as, you take care of everybody.
“We really do try to put in some good things in there where everyone gets what they want out of it and making it just for the fans. Working with Brock was interesting man, that’s all I’m gonna say.
“It was very different. You kind of just learn from your life and okay, this is what this was. I know for next time if something else ever happens for next time but… (Velasquez laughs)
“With Brock, that’s kind of what it was and again, the best thing about what I do now with wrestling is I can bring my family in and they’re true fans of it, you know? And that is the best.”
