The former UFC star has signed a lucrative, multi-year deal with the WWE. The company didn’t waste any time getting him a match booked.
He’ll challenge WWE Champion Brock Lesnar for the title at the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel pay-per-view event later this month.
According to Lashley, he’s interested in seeing how Velasquez does in his new venture.
“I seen him. He actually can work. I’m interested. I’m interested to see. I’d like to get out there, meet Cain, he’s a super dude, man. I trained with him a couple times and, man, he’s an amazing dude, and I know that he’s putting in the time. Hopefully his body can hang up for the torture and I don’t know what kind of schedule they’re going to put him on. If he’s on the same schedule that we’re running right now, it might be a little challenging, but if he gets a little bit of easy schedule, I think he should be all right.”
