Below are some top news stories of the day, involving Andrade and Dana White.

• After a run in AEW, Andrade El Idolo made a triumphant return to WWE during this year’s Men’s Royal Rumble match. Since his comeback, the former United States Champion has been featured prominently in several vignettes and has racked up a series of victories. As part of this year’s WWE Draft, Andrade was moved from RAW to SmackDown, a shift that has reignited discussions about how WWE handles its Latino talent.

Fans eagerly awaited Andrade’s debut on SmackDown, which came swiftly when he defeated Apollo Crews on the May 31st edition of Friday Night SmackDown. Despite this strong showing, Andrade has recently voiced concerns about WWE’s booking decisions regarding Latino wrestlers.

The conversation began on social media when Andrade posted a photo of himself from SmackDown, capturing a moment where he distanced himself from Legado Del Fantasma. This prompted a fan to question WWE’s tendency to pit Latino wrestlers against each other, asking, “Why do they always make Latinos fight among Latinos? Don’t you know of another one?”

Echoing the fan’s frustration, Andrade responded, “I wonder the same!!!!!” His agreement with the fan’s sentiment highlights a broader issue within WWE’s creative direction, particularly in its representation and utilization of Latino talent.

• During the UFC 302 post-show press conference, Dana White said the following about UFC’s working relationship with WWE under the TKO banner:

“It’s very separate. I haven’t worked with them at all. I do what I do, and they do what they do.

They’re using some of the people from my team to help them in different areas, business-wise, but as far as putting on live events, I mean, WWE is very good at what they do. And we’re very good at what we do. And yeah, that’s about as far as it goes.”
