• Cain Velasquez Reacts To Fighting Brock Lesnar On SmackDown

As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown, former two time UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez made his WWE debut and attacked new WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar.

You can watch it below:

After SmackDown, Cain was interviewed by Marc Raimondi of ESPN. Below are the highlights:

On fighting with Brock Lesnar on SmackDown:

“It was a different world, but it felt the same, the same intensity that was there from the first time we fought. The same feelings came back. It’s a different world, yes, but those same feelings are there when he’s staring at me and I’m staring at him, like, ‘It’s time to go.’

The crowd reaction was awesome, the energy, it’s something that I gotta take in more of and I will once I get better at this. I could feel the energy and people just loving it.

I think it’s a great story, a great rivalry between me and Brock. There’s a strong tie from UFC to WWE now, it’s the same type of feeling when I fought him in Anaheim [at UFC 121].”

On what Roman Reigns said to him backstage:

“[Roman said] ‘It’s awesome to see you here and hopefully we see more of you here’.”

On if he would require surgery, as he was wearing a knee brace on SmackDown:

“No, it’s good. It’s getting better, so just leave it the way it is. Work on getting better in the ring and getting conformable out there as much as I can.”
