Velsaquez recently wowed in his in-ring debut for AAA’s TripleMania XXVII, where he teamed with AEW’s Cody Rhodes. He is expected to return for AAA’s New York and Los Angeles shows next month.
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.
