WWE reportedly suspended Andrade (Manuel Oropeza) for his first Wellness Policy violation. Per the policy, it’s a 30-day suspension for the first violation. The news was first reported by Prowrestlingsheet.com.
Powell’s POV: I guess this helps explain why Humberto Carrillo hit Andrade with a hammerlock DDT on the concrete floor following their match on Monday’s Raw.

Update: WWE has publicly announced the suspension with a statement on their corporate website.
