Saturday night, Cain Velasquez made his professional wrestling debut at AAA’s biggest event, Triplemania XXVll. After about a year of training, the former UFC champion shined during his debut, and showed off some of his athleticism as well.
Watch the clips below that had his teammate Daniel Cormier also raving about the moves he pulled off.

Here’s quick results from the match, courtesy of our more pro-wrestling savvy friends over at cageside seats:
Cain Velasquez, Cody Rhodes, & Psycho Clown defeated Texano, Taurus, & Killer Kross. Kross was the surprise luchador. Velasquez won the match via kimura submission on Texano. Velasquez was legit in luchador talent considering his level of training. Velasquez wrestled in a bull horn mask. Kross had peach fuzz hair. I got the feeling that maybe mask vs hair for Cain vs Kross is in the future.
Velasquez’s UFC contract allows him to continue doing pro-wrestling while also balancing his MMA career. He last fought in February, losing by TKO to top contender Francis Ngannou.
