Add former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez to the names of those released by WWE recently. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer announced the news this morning on his radio show. Cain never fit in to WWEs world honestly. Prior to joining WWE he had a couple matches in AAA and he looked great so I hope they are able to work together again.
Cain debuted last fall on WWEs inaugural “Friday Night Smackdown” on FOX to re-kindle his rivalry with the man he defeated for the UFC Heavyweight title, Brock Lesnar. The two had exactly one match, a 3-4 minute stinker at a Saudi Show where Brock got his win back. Cain has been on the injury/learning how to wrestle list ever since.
