• Andrade Will Face Former WWE Champion In His First Post-WWE Match
Former United States Champion Andrade was released from WWE in March 2021.
He’ll now have his first post-WWE match on July 31st, where he’ll face former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio (Alberto El Patron).
This match will take place at an event in McAllen, Texas.
Del Rio said the following about this match during an interview with Super Luchas:
“For the first time they are going to see what people on the Internet have been asking for, for a long time – Andrade against Alberto Del Rio. I don’t think we have ever seen a poster of such magnitude featuring two Mexican stars in Texas.”
Also during this interview, Del Rio confirmed that Nación Lucha Libre (a wrestling promotion he co-founded with Chavo Guerrero Jr., which shut down last January) will reopen this year.
