The next WWE appearance of former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez appears to be set.
According to a report by Dave Meltzer in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter at F4WOnline.com, the MMA legend turned pro wrestling star is scheduled to make his WWE return at the company’s upcoming WWE Royal Rumble 2020 pay-per-view in January.
The newsletter notes that Velasquez is currently booked for the 1/26 PPV at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, and will likely compete in either the 30-man Royal Rumble match itself, or in a WWE Championship rematch against former UFC foe and his WWE debut opponent at WWE Crown Jewel — Brock Lesnar.
