Cain Velasquez has earned a lot of respect over his career, even after being charged after his recent situation. In contrast, Cain Velasquez recently received a standing ovation upon his comeback upon his release from prison.
At the most recent AAA event in Phoenix, Arizona, Cain Velasquez made his return to professional wrestling. Unsurprisingly, Velasquez received a hero’s welcome. After serving eight months in jail on several charges, including attempted murder, the former UFC champion was just recently freed on bail.
It was claimed that Velasquez shot a man in February, and he was detained and charged with attempted first-degree murder. He attacked someone who had previously been jailed for allegedly sexually abusing Cain’s relative. Following his imprisonment, the combat sports world showed a lot of support for the former MMA champion.
In November, the 40-year-old celebrity was ultimately given a $1 million bail with the requirement that he remain in house arrest until the conclusion of his trial. However, Velasquez pleaded a not-guilty plea to each and every accusation.
At the most recent Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide event, Cain Velasquez was given permission to compete. He arrived to a standing ovation and a huge pop, as was to be expected. Even in a poignant promo, the former WWE star thanked his supporters for sticking by him during the most trying time in his life.
“Thank you. To be here tonight, guys, right now, is a dream come true. I truly appreciate it all, what you guys have already done, supported me and my family. Thank you, guys, forever. (fans applaud). My heart is happy to be here with you guys. I will always continue to fight forever. Keep going up forever. Thank you, guys.”
In his first pro wrestling match after being released from prison, Cain was overwhelmed by his fan’s support. He referred to his presence at the event as one of his dreams. Keep checking Ringside news for more developments.
