A name who was released by WWE earlier this year could be making a return to the company according to a current star who he’s very close with.
Speaking with ESPN, Rey Mysterio said he believes Cain Velasquez isn’t gone from WWE for good and will be back.
“I can’t dig into the exact situation with Cain. I do know for a fact that he’s very dedicated, he’s very passionate about lucha libre and about wrestling, I know this was one of his biggest dreams to be a part of the WWE. I honestly don’t think that he’s gone for good. I think he’s going to make an appearance and a comeback.”
Velasquez only wrestled two matches for WWE, one of which was a house show in Mexico in November 2019. The other was the Crown Jewel pay-per-view on October 31, 2019 in Saudi Arabia when he unsuccessfully challenged Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship.
Mysterio trained with Velasquez, which was documented on a WWE Network show following the latter’s debut. He had wrestled a few matches for AAA before WWE’s signing of him, but was released as part of the company’s supposed COVID-19 measures.
