Alberto Del Rio on whether he thinks Cain Velasquez will succeed in WWE

Alberto Del Rio recently did an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated to promote his fight against Tito Ortiz. 

In the interview, he was asked whether he thinks former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez will succeed in the world of WWE.

“Cain Velasquez is a hard-working man and he will do fine, but he’ll need to do what you have to do in order to succeed in the pro wrestling business.

In pro wrestling, Cain Velasquez needs to be Cain Velasquez. He needs to bring more personality—or let that personality out. It’s different than in an MMA fight. But for pro wrestling, he needs to completely entertain the crowd and have fun.

Cain was actually an option for my fight inside the cage, but he had different plans with UFC and pro wrestling. I’m 100% sure that Cain is going to be just fine.”

Velasquez lost to WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia in his promotional in-ring debut. 

He would then team up with Humberto Carrillo against Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson at a live event on November 30th at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico.
