Cain Velasquez has his next match lined up under the WWE banner.
Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “Cain Velasquez’s next booking is for the Royal Rumble show.”
There’s no word on what type of match the former UFC Heavyweight Champion will be competing in or his opponent. It’s possible that he works a singles match or WWE could book him as a participant in the Royal Rumble match.
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.
The Royal Rumble takes place on Sunday, January 26, 2020 from Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas
