• Vince McMahon Wants Cain Velasquez To Do Something About His Physique
As seen on last 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:
Paul Heyman posted photos of new WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez from SmackDown on his Instagram page and AEW World Champion Chris Jericho commented the following under it:
“Who’s the skinny fat guy?”
According to Brad Shepard, Vince McMahon isn’t impressed with Cain’s physique and wants him to do something about it:
“According to a source in WWE, Vince McMahon wants Cain Velasquez to get ripped, if he’s going to commit. The feeling is that he doesn’t look like a former UFC Heavyweight Champion right now (where as for example, Brock Lesnar does).
I’m told Velasquez is really nice and willing to learn.”
