• Former Champion Released From WWE
Former United States Champion Andrade has been granted his release from WWE.
WWE issued the following statement after the Fastlane 2021 pay-per-view went off the air:
“WWE has come to terms on the release of Andrade. We wish him all the best in all of his future endeavors.”

Below are Andrade’s accomplishments in WWE:
– 1x NXT Champion
– 1x United States Champion
Booker T recently noted that Andrade’s poor English speaking skills hurt his push in WWE, and WWE did pretty much nothing with him once Zelina Vega was released.
Here’s what Booker T said about the importance of being able to speak good English as a WWE wrestler:
“I’ve said it before, this guy is next level as far as his talent goes. He is special, he is extraordinary. If he worked on his English as much as he worked on his work in the ring, he’d be a star right now.
I think that’s the one thing that holds him back, not saying that’s a negative in a sense. But from trying to make him a mainstream star in America, it’s something that, you know, he needs that.
I say that because most Boxers that came to America and succeeded to that next level, all of those guys learnt English. Just so they can come out and cut a promo, be able to answer questions, and I don’t know, the one guy, Julio César Chávez, I think he’s the most famous Boxer that never thought about speaking English. But when you are 100-0…(laughs).”
