Cain Velasquez has reportedly not signed a WWE contract yet

Cain Valesquez

SmackDown’s premiere on Fox Network ended in a shocking manner as not only did the former Champion Kofi Kingston lost his title in a quick fashion but we also saw the debut of the former UFC Champion Cain Velasquez.

Velasquez was brought in by Rey Mysterio after he and his son Dominick were brutally attacked by Lesnar this past Monday Night on Raw and he went on to attack the Beast, forcing him to retreat.

However ESPN is reporting some interesting news on the matter and according to the site, Velasquez has not signed a deal with WWE as of yet.

It’s very uncommon for WWE to bring in a big name like the UFC Star without having him signed to a contract even though it looks likely that he will be staying around the promotion.

It’s evident from the events of SmackDown Live that WWE is building towards a Cain Velasquez vs. Brock Lesnar match and it would be interesting to see when it takes place.

    Umm, guess you haven’t seen the man in a real fight? Cain’s always been a lil flabby but he also always had the best cardio of any Heavyweight in the UFC!

    He was the best heavyweight in the world for years b/c he wore opponents out with his wrestling & pressure…

    I would be very surprised if there is no kind of legal document in place, I know WWE wanted a big wow factor for the FOX debut, but you do not set up a potentially huge storyline like this without some kind of legal safety net to stop him going elsewhere mid story.

    Don’t kid yourself he was always coming to WWE.

    He needs to put on a shirt like dan severn, and even severn look more fit
