WWE is working to establish their next big Latin American star. This is something that Vince McMahon wants as Rey Mysterio’s career appears to be coming to a close sooner than later. Now WWE has a feud that will hopefully see their next big Latin American Superstar emerge.
Andrade was able to take the WWE United States title off of Rey Mysterio. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Andrade is wrestling Mysterio in this program until they can figure out how to work their way out of it. Then it is on to Andrade’s next opponent that has been the plan all along.
Originally, and this doesn’t appear to have changed, the idea was for Andrade to have a longer very serious program over the title with Carrillo as a way to get both guys over as singles Latino stars.
Humberto Carrillo seems positioned to be the next Latin American star. If they provide him with enough focus and allow him to perform in the ring that could be a very safe bet to secure a portion of the fan base that Vince McMahon really wants to capture.
