As previously reported, WWE announced that Cain Velasquez stepped inside a WWE ring to learn techniques under Performance Center coach Norman Smiley. He also participated in a session of DDP Yoga led by Diamond Dallas Page.
According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the reason Velasquez was at the WWE Performance Center has to do with his status with UFC. Velasquez’s is currently in contract negotiations with UFC and he wanted to let the promotion know that he has other options available outside of MMA. It should be interesting to see what Velasquez would do if he’s unable to come to terms with UFC.
