AAA held a press conference on Tuesday, announcing that former-UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez has signed with the promotion. Velasquez will appear at TripleMania XXVII on August 3rd. There is no word on who Velasquez will face at the event, or what his role will be.
Velasquez spent a week at the WWE Performance Center last year, and has been an avid wrestling fan for much of his life. Velasquez is still under contract with UFC, but it is expected that UFC will allow him to participate in the Aug. 3rd event.
