Vince McMahon is apparently impressed with SmackDown Live’s Andrade “Cien” Almas since making his debut on the main roster.
Fightful reports that not only is Vince impressed but also other WWE officials because of his work with AJ Styles. As a result, the company position him in a program with Daniel Bryan, who is viewed as a top babyface on the brand.
There is an incredible amount of trust put into Almas, even though he could barely get on television his first couple of months on the brand. It will be interesting to see how far they push him up the card in the coming months.
