The heel antics of Paul Heyman was not enough to put down Rey Mysterio for good on WWE Raw. The Master of 619 had his own backup in the form of Cain Velasquez.
He made his grand debut on the flagship show of the WWE to help out his buddy who was having a hard time while encountering a long-time friend in Shelton Benjamin.
Rey Mysterio had a scheduled appearance on WWE Raw, last night to hype up the upcoming WWE Championship match at Crown Jewel. The champion, Brock Lesnar will defend the belt against Cain Velasquez in the main event of the PPV.
Currently, Rey is playing the role of Cain’s mouthpiece cum wresting trainer in order to make the latter one ready for his debut match inside the squared circle.
So the Mexican Luchador proceeded to say that Cain Velasquez will squash Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel just like he did at UFC in 2010. Paul Heyman interrupted the promo saying that won’t be the case.
His client will unleash the beast-mode to take care of the former UFC Heavyweight Champion. As for last night, he had a friend of Lesnar, Shelton Benjamin to take care of business against Rey Mysterio.
The high-flyer was still sporting slings on his shoulder from the beatdown that Lesnar handed to him. So he could barely defend himself when Cain Velasquez came out to a huge pop from the crowd.
It was the first time that the newly signed superstar was making his way out on WWE Raw. He pounced on Shelton Benjamin with furious strikes and followed up with a sleeper hold to layout the former Intercontinental Champion.
This segment was boosted up the storyline ongoing between Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez as we head into Crown Jewel. On this upcoming episode of SmackDown Live, these two will be coming face to face on FS1 in order to provide the last hype up before locking horns on October 31st. All hell is about to break loose if these two former MMA competitors can’t keep their control.
