According to Marc Raimondi of ESPN, former two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez may be in negotiations with New Japan Pro Wrestling, as he had an "informal meeting" with NJPW officials in San Francisco this weekend. The 37-year-old recently made his in-ring debut with the Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide promotion in Mexico at Triplemanía XXVII and put on a very impressive performance.
Here is Marc Raimondi's Tweet:
Cain Velasquez is at the New Japan Super J Cup show tonight in San Francisco. Sources said he’ll be having an informal meeting with NJPW officials. Velasquez is signed on for two more Lucha Libre AAA matches, but several other wrestling promotions have interest, per sources.— Marc Raimondi (@marc_raimondi) August 25, 2019
