Brendan Schaub Talks Cain Velasquez Move To WWE
Cain Velasquez recently announced that he was retiring from MMA, and signing with the WWE. Brendan Schaub believes this move will come with some added benefits.
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez had been trying his hand at pro wrestling. Therefore, it was no surprise when he left the USADA testing pool, and announced his retirement from MMA. Additionally, when he faced off against WWE star Brock Lesnar recently, it was expected that he would sign with the WWE, which he did.
However former UFC fighter, Brendan Schaub, believes this move will require some changes from Velasquez. Speaking on his Below The Belt podcast, he explained that most WWE wrestlers take some form of steroids, and he thinks Cain will do the same.
“I hate to do this, but WWE fans, every single one of your favorite wrestlers is on steroids. If you’re gonna play ball, you gotta get dirty. And that’s just part of the game. Why wouldn’t you be? Who gives a f–k? Why wouldn’t you be? There’s no difference between what they’re doing and what Hollywood’s doing. If you get a call to be Batman, you better juice the f–k up and be Bruce Wayne. What are you doing? No one actually looks like Bruce Wayne.”
Schaub goes on to explain how Cain will likely have to use some sort of PEDs to stay healthy.
“If you’re doing WWE, juice the f–k up. Look like a superhero. You’re on the road 300 days a year, especially with Cain and his injuries, good for him. We’ll see what’s up because he’s never been like jacked. If he gets f–king Nacho Libre and just f–king shred city, that’d be so dope. But also him getting out of the USADA testing pool, no sh*t dude. If you wanna be a swimmer, you gotta get wet. If you wanna be a WWE wrestler, you gotta put needles in your a–.”
Brendan Schaub makes some good points, about steroids being common among pro wrestlers. With Cain Velasquez being out of the USADA testing pool, there is nothing to stop him from using, if he wants to.
