Alberto El Patron: 'In Pro Wrestling, Cain Velasquez Needs To Be Cain Velasquez'

Alberto El Patron, formerly known as Alberto Del Rio in WWE, knows about bridging the gap between MMA and pro wrestling.

Recently, when speaking to Sports Illustrated, Alberto spoke about Cain Velasquez and his move to WWE. Alberto is very confident in Velasquez's ability to succeed in WWE but feels he needs to let his real personality shine through.

"Cain Velasquez is a hard-working man and he will do fine, but he’ll need to do what you have to do in order to succeed in the pro wrestling business," said El Patron. "In pro wrestling, Cain Velasquez needs to be Cain Velasquez. He needs to bring more personality—or let that personality out. It’s different than in an MMA fight. But for pro wrestling, he needs to completely entertain the crowd and have fun."

Alberto lost his fight on pay-per-view against Tito Ortiz for Combate Americas via a round one submission by rear naked choke.

Cain Velasquez recently wrestled for WWE on a Mexican live event. He was victorious in a tag team match with Humberto Carrillo against Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. You can see results from that event at this link.
