Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez might only have had two wrestling matches, but he has already attracted the attention of two major wrestling companies. He wrestled for AAA promotion, and currently is in talks with both WWE and AEW for a contract.
Signing him would be a big for either company given the success that MMA stars have had in moving from MMA to wrestling. At the same time, signing someone of Cain Velasquez’s stature is sure to bring a lot of mainstream attention to whoever signs him.
“Cain Velasquez is in discussions with two prominent pro-wrestling promotions. The former UFC heavyweight champion and his team have been in touch recently with both WWE and AEW about a contract, sources confirmed with ESPN. Dave Meltzer first discussed the info Sunday on Wrestling Observer Radio.”ESPN’s Marc Raimondi
