Former WWE star/UFC Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez wrestled at AAA's event in Tempe, Arizona, on Saturday night while out of jail on $1 million bail.

Velasquez and his legal team requested permission for him to wrestle at the show because the event was held at his alma mater of Arizona State University. He had to take and pay for a law enforcement officer with him on the trip to make it happen.

After entering the ring, Velasquez addressed the crowd at the event. In a trios bout, he teamed with Blue Demon Jr. and Pagano to defeat Gringo Loco, Sam Adonis & Taurus.

“Thank you. To be here tonight with all guys right now is a dream come true. I truly appreciate it all. What you guys have already done supported me [and] my family. Thank you, guys, forever. My heart is happy to be here with you guys. I will always continue to fight forever. Keep going up forever. Thank you, guys.”
