After a war of words between Rey Mysterio and Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar’s good friend Shelton Benjamin came out to the ring to attempt to bully Mysterio. Unfortunately for Benjamin, that led to a visit from Cain Velasquez, who manhandled Lesnar’s former roommate and assistant coach, forcing him to tap out.
Cain Velasquez joined WWE Backstage this week alongside Rey Mysterio to weigh in on the differences between UFC and WWE, his relationship with Mysterio, his upcoming match with WWE Champion Brock Lesnar, and how entering the world of sports entertainment is a dream come true.
At the very first WWE Friday Night SmackDown on FOX, Brock Lesnar squashed WWE Champion Kofi Kingston to claim the title before Rey Mysterio came to the ring accompanied by former UFC fighter Cain Velasquez. In the end, Velasquez stood tall, as Lesnar was forced to retreat — but with the championship over his shoulder.
