Andrade comments on his WWE release

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Andrade took to Twitter to express his happiness over WWE granting him his contractual release on Sunday. He also expressed thanks to Paul Levesque, Paul Heyman, and William Regal. “I want to thank @TripleH, @HeymanHustle and @RealKingRegal for all these years and great support that they gave me all these years also to the fans who were always supporting me, a big hug to all the talent and workers who always behaved kindly to me,” Andrade wrote.

Powell’s POV: For those who missed it, WWE announced Andrade’s contractual release on Sunday night after he previously confirmed that he requested to be released. He is yet another wrestler who became a star in NXT, yet wasn’t pushed properly on the main roster. It will be interesting to see where he lands next once his 90-day non-compete expires.

  1. Dave Meltzer is reporting there is no 90-day no compete clause

  2. Do you guys think Andrade should join AEW and reform Los Ingobernables. AEW likes new japan and Los Ingobernables is one of their most popular factions. Andrade is the founding member of that faction like Finn Balor and Bullet Club. I think they can get good Good Brothers vs. LIJ matches from this

  3. Yes, he was a sort of star in NXT, but you are forgetting that it took him a while to catch on in NXT. The first 75% of his time there was fairly mediocre. Granted, he did salvage something near the end, but I wouldn’t put him in the same class as Finn Balor, Aleister Black, Samoa Joe, Bayley, or any of the other actual NXT stars that flopped to some degree on the main roster. I believe it could be argued that the only reason he was a success in NXT at all was due to Zelina Vega.

    • Exactly. Zelina Vega got over because Andrade can’t cut a promo and is just another small guy doing flips and stunts instead of wrestling. He needs a good manager to get him over.
