Cain is free and he wants to wrestle.
Former UFC World Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez was let out on bail on November 8th after he was charged with attempted murder, plus other charges, on March 2nd. Velasquez allegedly shot into a vehicle in which Harry Goularte was sitting and hit his stepfather, Paul Bender. Goularte had been accused of sexual misconduct with Cain Velasquez’s four-year-old son. Now, Marc Raimondi of ESPNcited sources who say that Velasquez and his team have been discussing the possibility of him wrestling at the Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide event on December 3rd. Raimondi notes that the show is particularly meaningful to Cain since it will be held at Arizona State University’s Mullett Arena where Velasquez was a two-time All-American college wrestler at the school. Velasquez is waiting to get the court’s approval in order to compete at the show, but if he gets it, Raimondi says that he’s expected to be in action.
Per MMA Junkie, Cain Velasquez made his request at an arraignment in a Santa Clara (California) County court on November 21, where he and his attorney made a motion that would enable him to compete at the AAA event. Cain is currently under travel restrictions while out on bail. The ruling is expected to be made on November 22nd. Cain is no stranger to AAA as he previously wrestled at AAA TripleMania Regia II, AAA Invading NY and TripleMania XXVII. Velasquez has also competed in WWE when he took on Brock Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel 2019.
