Former UFC heavyweight champion of the world Cain Velasquez made his WWE Smackdown debut today in style. After Brock Lesnar had defeated Kofi Kingston at the Staples Center on Smackdown’s Fox debut, Cain Velasquez made an appearance along with Rey Mysterio.
As soon as he stepped inside the ring, Lesnar lunged at Cain, but the debutant was able to take Brock down and repeatedly hit him with punches and ultimately Lesnar had to retreat from the ring.
Cain made his pro wrestling debut at TripleMania XXVII in Mexico on 3rd August. He was seen pulling incredible Lucha Libre moves and awed the pro wrestling fans around the world. Now with initial success inside the world of pro wrestling, it looks like Cain Velasquez has no plans of returning to the Octagon anytime soon as the former champion intends to pull out of the USADA testing pool. The news was first published by MMAJunkie.
