Velasquez, who is a former UFC Heavyweight champion, arrived in WWE in October 2019 to start a feud with Brock Lesnar after the two fought in the octagon at UFC 121 in 2010. The two eventually had a match for the WWE Championship at the Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia.

After that match, Velasquez was not used on WWE television but did compete at a WWE live event in Mexico last November. He teamed with Humberto Carrillo to defeat Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.

Prior to his run in WWE, Velasquez briefly wrestled for the Mexican promotion AAA, competing in six-man tag team matches at TripleMania XXVII and Invading NY.
