Cain Velasquez made his first wrestling appearance since being released from jail at last night’s AAA Worldwide event in Tempe, Arizona.
In March, Velasquez was charged with attempted murder following a shooting in San Jose, California where it is alleged he fired multiple shots at a vehicle with passengers inside.
Appearing at AAA Worldwide, Velasquez donned a mask and teamed with Pagano and Blue Demon Jr. to defeat Taurus, Sam Adonis, and Gringo Loco.
Speaking to the crowd, the former UFC fighter expressed his gratitude for being able to appear.
“To be here, in front of you guys, right now, it’s a dream come true. I truly appreciate it all, what you guys have always done, supporting me, my family.”
Permission was gained from the Santa Clara County judge Daniel Nishigaya last month, under the condition that he attended the AAA event with a law enforcement officer.
Under California law, Cain Velasquez faces a possible nine years behind bars if convicted of attempted murder.
