Ex-WWE Star Going To Mexico After Pedophile Attack

While to most sports fans, Cain Velasquez is known as the former UFC Heavyweight champion of the world – where he won that title two times in his mixed martial arts career. However, to many sports entertainment and professional wrestling fans, Cain Velasquez is known as the fighter that made his WWE debut on the first episode of Smackdown on FOX back in October of 2019. He confronted Brock Lesnar after Lesnar won the WWE Championship from Kofi Kingston in a squash match lasting only a few seconds. Cain last competed at Super ShowDown on 31 October 2019, where he was squashed by Brock Lesnar and failed to win the WWE Championship.



Cain Velasquez signed a lucrative multi-year deal with the WWE, but the contract allowed the company to release him whenever they saw fit and that is exactly what they did as he was released by the company back in 2020 as part of the pandemic budget cuts. The former UFC champion was also recently involved in a shooting incident in San Jose, California as well. Velasquez was taken into custody due to his involvement in the shooting, which involved two people. One of those people wound up in jail. The other went to the hospital.

As revealed by TMZ, Velasquez had been arrested and charged with attempted murder in relation to the incident.

Cain Velasquez has requested special permission to return to professional wrestling.

Velasquez appeared at an arraignment Monday in a Santa Clara (Calif.) County court. It was the first hearing to which he’s been able to wear street clothes rather than a jail jumpsuit after he was released on bail Nov. 8.

In addition to typical arraignment procedures, Velasquez and attorney Ed Sousa went before Judge Daniel T. Nishigaya and made a motion for the court to permit him to compete at a Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide professional wrestling event Dec. 3 in Arizona.
