Cain Velasquez Reveals Advice Received from CM Punk Before SmackDown Debut


Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez made his WWE debut on last week’s episode of Friday night SmackDown Live. Velasquez confronted Brock Lesnar for attacking Rey Mysterio and his son on RAW. After his WWE debut, Velasquez spoke to ESPN, and revealed some advice he received from CM Punk beforehand.

Here’s what he had to say:


He said, ‘As far as getting into it, you just gotta be a team player’ and ‘We’re all working together as a company to better ourselves. Come to the end of the day, it’s business as well. You just have to be okay with what you have and what you’re being compensated for in order to go out and perform.’ I think what I’m doing is fun as shit. I’m having a blast.
