Cain Velasquez talks WWE, Brock Lesnar announcement with media in Las Vegas


before we get to the actual event itself can you gotta take us through the process of all this how this came to be about how you linked up with the WWE and how you made the decision to leave the UFC and take this next step career in your career yeah at first I went to the Performance Center I was at for about a week this was maybe like a year and a half ago or so and already from from before that well first it was the Elimination Chamber is what started it all for me okay I went there with Daniel Cormier a bunch of other friends it’s fan saw the show I put out some stuff on social media just because again it brought back those memories of me being a kid watching it having a great time just you know the whole experience and I decided to have my people get and talk get in contact with the WWE so we can go to the training center and to see just mess around see if I can even do this and I was there for a week I loved it and from then on I just been to talk to the WB and you’ve had meetings here and there and finally I’m here I’m curious what’s your nerve level right because it’s like I mean amateur wrestling that kind of naturally progressed into fighting it’s made of what you’ve been doing for you know a couple decades now this is new this is different so what’s your emotions like and what are your nerves like heading into this next step what is gonna be I imagine a pretty lengthy career this is totally new for me but just the experience that I’m having here working with everyone something that that I love and I’m just right now I’m kind of just have a lot of emotions going on right now from from Brock and what he did to Ray and Dominick that to me hit close to home so again like I’m very angry at the situation my mind is all over the place from what happened and man I’m just looking to be here and get some revenge what does this mean for a career people want to know are you gonna be able to do both things at the same time or just close the chapter on your movie career as of right now the chapters closed on my MMA career and I’m focusing on the task at hand with the WWE I love this sport I’ve kind of rebirth myself into like we live in it and just loving it again so yeah man I’m all-in and doing this and diving deep into this and this is what I’m doing for right now yes will you stay loose on the testing pool so you legally have the option to keep fighting in the UFC or where you would draw from that and you know I’m gonna withdraw from that because I mean it’s great now to see you saw I come to my door at seven o’clock in the morning whenever they want and just come in and just rush me out of bed and you know so I’m okay with yeah getting to being pulled from sorry yes yeah we ended up talking on the phone and you know what he just supported me 100% you know he says he just said like it was it was just a good respectful you know talk that we had he picked me for everything that I did I thanked him and the company for everything that they did and he just gave me his full blessing I said this is awesome what you’re doing go ahead and you know you you have my full consent to go ahead and do what you want to do so a sense of right oh definitely of course yeah that that’s never left that’s never left me you know just those feelings that we that I had when I first fought him in 2010 now I would say it’s amplified more so you know I’ve been watching them at the WWE for a while and see just see what he does every day and like I’m not a fan of what he does and how he portrays himself when he’s wrestling so I’m here to change some things we’ve talked here and there and he you know he knows what I’m doing and you know I got his full support and fighting steep again whenever that fight happens but yeah man we’ve been keeping in touch and you know it’s it’s just kind of crazy uh there’s this road that I’ve gone in you know into and it’s been such a short amount of time but but jab and I’ve had a goal of mine you know what I want to do in this sport so I’m doing it you never know he might show up to say you think he sees a future tag team partner will never know you never know this he loves it he’s a big fan that would ya that wouldn’t surprise me yes could you see if this maybe doesn’t go the way you planned in the WWE may be running it back in an octagon here or two down the road yeah of course I mean I’m always training you know fighting like that’s still my world I still go in and train and do and do do everything I think it’s great to stay sharp for to do this you know a lot of moves that I do in the Octagon you can do here in the WWE and obviously improve on what I’m doing here and add on to it and you know worked with ray yeah man let’s just look to always improve always get better that’s the name of the game right it’s different because I just I would say just the crowd that they have here in the wabe are I would say the most the most electrifying the most the craziest that I’ve ever seen anywhere else you know so it’s definitely different from fighting fighting you have a different mentality you’re not thinking of the crowd you’re thinking of what you’re gonna do with you and your opponent and you can almost have the the blinders on as you’re walking out you know you don’t really acknowledge it you’re focused on what you’re doing and then that’s pretty much it and this it’s a little different acknowledge the crowd they can help work you know to work with you and on what you’re doing so again I’m still learning as much as I can but but yeah it’s different it’s different animal for sure how much experience have you had and turn on experience but how much input of event in terms of your packaging the music they’re gonna be using the plants for you in general that’s for me in general to moreso be myself you know be the the fighter coming in but that’s that’s right now you know again I’m gonna trade as much as I can to get as better as best as I can for this opportunity and just yeah maybe the best wrestler MMA fighter just everything I think I think if anything with Kay’s background and and his MMA record bringing wrestling this type of entertainment into his life is only gonna make them much better than what he already is you already said it kind of water machine other than that makes you he’s a natural he’s a natural windy when you have the background that Kane has you know there’s you can’t you can’t miss you can’t accept failure and Cain is the type of guy that does not accept failure vocabulary so he’s going full head and he’s coming at stronger
