CAIN VELASQUEZ could soon be back in the wrestling ring, according to Rey Mysterio.
The former UFC heavyweight champion enjoyed a brief stint in WWE after signing for them last year.
He debuted alongside the legendary luchador to confront Brock Lesnar last Autumn.
After beating him inside the octagon previously, Vince McMahon booked him to face the ‘Beast Incarnate’ again inside the squared-circle.
However, Velasquez was defeated in quick fashion at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in October 2019 in a failed attempt to capture the WWE Title.
He was then scheduled to appear in the Royal Rumble back in January until injury forced him out of the extravaganza.
Velasquez was then released by WWE in April as he and a host of other stars and staff were cut amid the coronavirus.
Most people thought that would likely be the 38-year-old’s last foray in wrestling.
But Mysterio believes fans will see him back in the ring soon.
Speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show for ESPN, he said: “I know for a fact that he’s dedicated and very passionate about lucha libre and wrestling.
