• Andrade Clarifies His Comments About Brock Lesnar & Asuka
Former WWE wrestler Andrade did an interview with Lucha Libre Online on Monday, where he talked about his WWE exit.
One of the reasons that was reported for Andrade not being pushed on the WWE main roster is that he isn’t fluent in speaking English.
Andrade did this interview in Spanish and Lucha Noticias translated what Andrade said.
They translated the following on Andrade talking about his English speaking skills holding him back:
“Those are excuses, I know the language better than Brock Lesnar and Asuka, I respect them, but it’s the truth. They don’t get buts or criticized for not speaking English.”
Andrade later clarified that this is not what he said and that Lucha Noticias made an error while translating.
Andrade tweeted the following (translated to English):
“I did not say that I master the language better than Brock. I said that Brock speaks it perfect but he has no need to do so and that Asuka is a great champion and a great fighter and does not need to speak.”
Yo no dije que domino el idioma mejor que Brock yo dije que Brock lo habla perfecto pero el no tiene necesidad de hacerlo y que asuka es una gran campeona y genial luchadora y no necesita hablar. https://t.co/ubX1767nDB
