Have the match start as normal between Kofi and Brock.  Use the same opening salvo, but have Kingston kick out in time.  Then have Brock pummel the champ for a bit, but can't secure the pin.  Kofi gets in some offense, but Brock takes him to Suplex City and one more F-5, then cover.  Just as he lays on top of Kingston, Rey's music hits and out comes Mysterio.  Brock gets up and see him on the top of the ramp.  He gets up and goes to the ropes and messages Rey to come fight him.  Then as Mysterio walks towards the ring, Lesnar exits the squared circle and heads for the former champ.

But before Brock gets close, out of the crowd comes Valesquez and attacks the Beast Incarnate!  Ref calls for the bell and Kofi retains.  Cain and Brock brawl until refs and security come pull them apart.  The show ends as Lesnar is shocked at Cain's appearance.
As stated, this feud doesn't need to have the title on Brock to work.

FOX wants Lesnar on the show and with the belt, and as you can see by that abomination of a show they also want mainstream athletes on it. Tyson Fury was totally allowed to jump the rail, or else both WWE wouldn’t have shown it AND security would have beat him down to the ground and cuffed him.

Your booking is great. However, if Cain was going to attack from the crowd, I would have left Lesnar in the ring and had Cain come up from behind. But leave it to WWE - they didn’t even think that their fan base would know who Cain is or else they’d have had him come out alone.

I would’ve bet money that Cain was going to be with AEW. But it shows how panicked Vince is and he’s going to sign everything and everyone that he can. Daniel Cormier will be at Wrestlemania if he finishes up with Stipe before then, mark my words.

Definitely. Brock as a special attraction is fine, but I lose all interest when he has the belt.

For what it's worth, I had no idea who Cain Valesquez was. If you told me the name I probably knew he was a UFC guy, but I didn't know he'd beaten Lesnar and I had zero idea what he looked like.

I wonder how much his physique will change while he's working in WWE?

I'm surprised Vince let Cain's "Brown Power" tattoo go.

The funny thing is that Cain has been training for AAA while negotiating with both WWE and AEW all this time, and you’d think he’d be on the juice to get himself into cosmetic shape since his MMA days seem behind him. Meltzer is acting like Cain’s agent and is all over Twitter defending his appearance and ensuring everyone that he’s in better cardio shape than anyone on the WWE roster.

I wouldn't be surprised if 70 year  old Bob Backlund is in better cardio shape than Cain.

Cain has officially been removed from the USADA testing pool, meaning that he can get on the ‘roids now since WWE certainly won’t test him either.

Cain looked exactly like that when he kicked Brocks ass in less than a round in real life

Is this actually "thebear", or did somebody hack his account? You've been hibernating for a number of years there, Mr. Bear. It's good to see you posting again.

LMAO why waste your time trying to be logical with booking

Cain lost in 2 mins ...made a cool 2 mil Brock probably made 5 LMAO Brock is a genius Hulk Hogan couldn't do it better than Brock lmao
Just remember they buried Kofi whole title reign and Wrestlemania storyline for 2mins of that and then Brock gets backed down by Rey Mysterio lmao

Cain actually signed a long-term WWE deal and was booked so poorly in his first match that why would anyone want to ever watch him wrestle again? I just don’t get WWE at all.  They couldn’t let Cain do a hurricanrana or one cool move he learned in AAA before squashing him so that 1 person out there might be interested in him?

Exactly like why would i want to see Cain after that match.
They keep booking themselves in the Corner for no reason


EDIT: GODDAMN NEW DAY OVER LIKE A MUTHAFUCKER in Saudi shit

I'm not going to destroy the booking of this match. Why? Because whomever booked it did so with the UFC in mind. They started out as they would have in the cage, Cain hit a liver shot and went for the kill - but he left himself open and Brock locked in a submission. That part? Just fine booking. The only problem is that nobody, repeat NOBODY else that has worked with Brock was booked that way, even 'Taker. So it made it appear like Cain got squashed. So I totally get why you and others are pissed. But Cain will regain his shine at some point, and if he doesn't, he's going to earn a minimum of $10M on this contract and he won't have to get hit in the face for real.

Two things I noticed - one, Brock was over HUGE with the crowd, while Cain got polite applause as if they weren't as familiar with him. Second, and even more surprisingly, the crowd mimicked Paul Heyman's speech, and I think it even surprised him a little bit as he was really, really wound up.

Also - when did WWE ring announcing get so bad? Whomever is the lead ring announcer here is just horrible. He sounds like a parody of Jeremy Borash.

Apparently Cain Velazquez needs knee surgery and that’s why he was booked to lose in 2 minutes. WWE was aware that he was banged up but didn’t realize how serious it was until a week ago. So he just signed a 3-year deal but probably won’t be seen again for 6 months. Locally there were already advertisements for a Mexican house show that was going to see Cain and Misterio face Lesnar and a mystery partner at the end of the month, that is likely off now.

I just saw it and being a UFC fan, I liked the way the bout was booked.
I wouldn't blow it on the first match. I would've had Brock win with a leg submission of sorts to sell the injury, but that's me using logic.

I just watched the match on Smackdown en Espanol (don't ask). The match itself looked absolutely horrendous. I could understand Cain being green but Brock? He looked like Joe Turco could have beat him in a shoot. The 'E' has problems that go beyond the Saudis beheading pro wres fighters.

Heel hook and have Cain stretchered out.  Will explain the absence.  So they did the arm instead.

Cain’s 2nd WWE match will see him teaming with Humberto Carillo against Gallows and Anderson on a Mexican house show. Also on that show will be Rey Misterio challenging Bray Wyatt for the WWE title.

When is that match taking place? I thought Cain’s knee was falling off

November 30.  They said his knee was in bad shape but I don't know if he just rested it or still needs surgery.  I would not expect him to get more than 2 minutes of ring time in this match.  He'll probably get the hot tag and the win.
