UFC legend and former WWE star Cain Velasquez had a historic feud with Brock Lesnar. Velasquez recently shared that it was “professional” and a “little uncomfortable” to work with Lesnar when they collided at WWE Crown Jewel 2019.
Cain Velasquez talks about working with Brock Lesnar
The former UFC rivals met inside the squared circle in a match at the premium live event. Lesnar dominated the match and won via submission after applying a Kimura Lock. The Beast Incarnate attacked Velasquez after the match and hit him with an F5 on top of a steel chair.
It wound up being Cain Velasquez’s only televised match with the promotion. He has appeared in the AAA wrestling promotion a couple of times since his WWE release in April 2020.
Speaking on the Keepin it 100 podcast with Konnan and Disco Inferno, the UFC legend noted that his match against Lesnar was professional but uncomfortable at the same time.
“Yeah, professional and I would say it was a little uncomfortable [planning the match with Brock Lesnar]. I’m just so new to the wrestling world but everyone that I’ve worked with has been amazing as far as, you take care of everybody. We really do try to put in some good things in there where everyone gets what they want out of it and making it just for the fans. Working with Brock was interesting man, that’s all I’m gonna say. It was very different.”
Cain Velasquez was recently released from prison on bail. He teamed up with Blue Demon Jr. and Pagano at a AAA wrestling show in December and received a standing ovation during his return to the ring.
