Andrade requested his release from WWE. He has not been factored into any creative plans and his name has not come up at all.

We exclusively brought this story to you this morning, and then had follow-up once we received confirmation that he did request his release from the company.

According toFightful, people in WWE have expected this for quite a while. There was no “outburst” or confrontation, but they also don’t expect Andrade’s release request to be granted right away. As we previously reported, Paul Heyman was on his side, but his removal from creative power meant that Andrade was benched.

They didn’t expect Andrade’s release to be immediately granted, and said the writing was on the wall about his future when Paul Heyman was removed from power and Andrade’s push quickly subsided.


We haven’t seen Andrade since an October 2020 loss to Angel Garza on RAW. He wasn’t drafted to either brand either. Ringside News ran an exclusive about why this was the case, and it all boiled down to Vince McMahon.
