WWE/AEW News: Chris Jericho takes a jibe at Cain Velasquez
Former UFC Champion Cain Velasquez made his WWE debut last night on SmackDown Live's historic move to FOX. All Elite Wrestling's World Champion Chris Jericho posted a comment on Paul Heyman's Instagram album that highlighted last night's events, and in the process, took a major shot at Velasquez.
Velasquez makes his debut
The Blue Brand made its move to FOX last night, in what was being promoted by WWE for the past several months. The main event of the show was a WWE title match between Brock Lesnar and Kofi Kingston.
Kingston had won the WWE Championship way back at WrestleMania 35, by beating Daniel Bryan. Kofi went on to defeat the likes of Kevin Owens, Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton, and Samoa Joe, and managed to keep the belt on his waist for months on end. Last night was a different ball game though, as Lesnar squashed Kofi in seconds.
As soon as the bell rang, Kofi charged at The Beast, only to get picked up and put down by an F5. This was enough for a 3-count, and Lesnar became WWE Champion in his first SmackDown match in 15 years. The celebration didn't last long though, as Cain Velasquez came out with Rey Mysterio, and Lesnar looked genuinely worried.

Velasquez attacked Lesnar upon entering the ring, and the latter fled the spot in a hurry. Paul Heyman posted a bunch of images from the incident on his official Instagram handle. Chris Jericho commented on the same and took a shot at Velasquez.
