WWE has come to terms on the release of Andrade.
WWE has come to terms on the release of Andrade. We wish him all the best in all of his future endeavors.
We reported earlier this month that Andrade had requested his release from WWE at the Raw taping on March 8. The request was originally denied by WWE.
Andrade last appeared on television for WWE on night two of the WWE Draft on Raw. Andrade lost to Angel Garza that night before being attacked by The Fiend. Andrade went undrafted and hasn’t made an appearance since.
After debuting with WWE in 2015, Andrade, known as La Sombra in Mexico, achieved main event status in NXT. Andrade won the NXT Championship with Zelina Vega as his manager. In 2018, he was called up to SmackDown. Andrade would go on to win the United States Championship from Rey Mysterio at a House Show in Madison Square Garden.
Andrade is engaged to WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair.
Andrade released a statement earlier on his Twitter account, simply saying “Good news!!!!”
Good news!!!! Buenas noticias!!! #Tranquilo #Happy
