Cain Velasquez’s second professional wrestling match is officially set.
In a press release that was issued today, it was announced that the former UFC Heavyweight Champion will team with Psycho Clown & Brian Cage in a six-man tag match against Taurus, Texano Jr. & Rey Escorpion at Lucha Libre AAA’s Invading NY event on Sunday, September 15. Impact Wrestling is promoting the show in partnership with AAA.
Velasquez made his pro wrestling in-ring debut at Triplemania XXVII last month, with Velasquez, Psycho Clown & Cody Rhodes defeating Taurus, Texano Jr. & Killer Kross.
A Tag Team title match has also been added to Invading NY. The Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr. & Fenix) will defend their AAA Tag titles against Santana & Ortiz.
Invading NY was originally supposed to take place at Madison Square Garden but was moved to the smaller Hulu Theater at MSG. AAA Reinas de Reinas Champion Tessa Blanchard will defend her title against Taya Valkyrie at the show. Blue Demon Jr. vs. Dr. Wagner Jr. is also set.
In addition to promoting Invading NY, it was noted that Impact “will also provide guest stars to be featured in the event, as well as marketing and logistical support for the production.”
Invading NY will be available as a live iPPV via Fite TV.
