Mysterio praised Velasquez for his discipline during his training for his match with Lesnar.
“He’s doing awesome,” Mysterio said. “He’s disciplined. He’s the first guy in the gym and the last one to leave. He’s just a natural. There’s nothing that I can teach him that he doesn’t already know. I’m just kind of guiding him as much as I can. Cain is gonna do awesome. Another scar is on Brock’s face.”
Velasquez put over the wrestlers in WWE as being amazing athletes. He said he gets to integrate some of the things she learned while in MMA.
On his feud with Brock Lesnar, Velasquez said, “It’s personal. Him going in and hurting Rey and going in and start hurting his son Dominik, forget that. It’s personal, I’m going in there to beat his ass.”
