Cain Velasquez Meets With WWE Officials At WWE Headquarters, Updated Video Surfaces Online

Uht-oh, it looks like a former UFC Heavyweight Champion and recent AAA Lucha Libre competitor could be WWE-bound.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE recently took a meeting with former UFC star turned pro wrestler Cain Velasquez, who made his in-ring debut at AAA’s August 3rd TripleMania XXVII pay per view in Mexico.

Reports are that Velasquez will also be checking-in with the likes of NJPW and AEW, but no final decision has been made.

He did have a work-out session at the WWE Performance Center back in 2018, but told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that he was interested in what AEW was doing.

Velasquez also partnered with AEW Superstar and VP Cody Rhodes at TripleMania, where his team picked up the victory.

He is still currently under contract with UFC.
