• SmackDown Star Set To Get A Title Opportunity At WrestleMania 35
As we have noted before, Wrestling Observer noted that SmackDown Live wrestler Andrade (WWE shortened his name) is scheduled to get a push because he was unhappy with his position in the company and this led to WWE officials beginning to push him (as they don’t want anyone to ask for their release).
Andrade picked up the biggest win of his WWE main roster career when he defeated former WWE Champion Rey Mysterio in a singles match on last week’s SmackDown. He had another spectacular match with Mysterio this week as well.
According to Slice Wrestling, Andrade is expected to be a part of the United States Championship match at WrestleMania 35.

Speaking of the United States Title match at WrestleMania 35, we noted last month that the No Holds Barred podcast reported that Rey Mysterio is expected to be a part of the US Title match at WrestleMania 35.
This means that the current rivalry between Mysterio & Andrade will go all the way to WrestleMania 35 in a US Title match (which could be a singles or a multi-man match).
