WWE is reportedly booking underwhelming 'rubber match' between Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez for WrestleMania 36


As we enter December and closeout 2019, that means WrestleMania season is right around the corner.

It typically starts with the Royal Rumble which is set for Houston, Texas in January.

From there, the WrestleMania card begins to take shape and the biggest matches on the card unfold.

This year, the women main evented WWE’s biggest show for the first-time in history where Becky Lynch defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair.

For the 2020 iteration of the event, rumours continue to swirl that Rousey will make her long-awaited return to WWE and face Lynch in a rematch, but what of the other proven draws like Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns?

As far as Lesnar goes, WWE are looking at two options. One would see him face Cain Velasquez in what the company would bill as a ‘rubber match’ as Velasquez dethroned Lesnar for the UFC heavyweight title in MMA and Lesnar defeated Velasquez on his WWE debut at Crown Jewel in October.

So it seems Lesnar is set for a crossover contest of sorts either way and that’s probably for the best as he’s made his way through everyone else on the WWE roster right now outside of Seth Rollins.

Reigns is currently the bookmaker’s favourite to win the Royal Rumble in January and it’s expected that he will challenge – and probably beat – The Fiend at WrestleMania 36 in his hometown of Tampa, Florida.
