• Identity Of NXT Wrestler Used As A Replacement In WrestleMania 36 Title Match Revealed

As we noted earlier, the Wrestling Observer is reporting that United States Champion Andrade has been removed from the RAW Tag Team Championship match at WrestleMania 36 because of a rib injury.

Andrade and Angel Garza were announced as the team to challenge The Street Profits for the RAW Tag Team Championship.

It was then noted that a wrestler from NXT was used as Garza’s tag team partner during this match at WrestleMania tapings this week.

PostWrestling is reporting that NXT wrestler Austin Theory (age 22) was used as Andrade’s replacement in this match.
