WWE star Andrade opens up on his release request. The former United States Champion was last seen on WWE TV back in October 2020.
Since the untimely passing of Eddie Guerrero, the WWE have constantly been looking for the next big hispanic star. They have long desired to capture the Latin American market and many were convinced that they had found their guy in Andrade.
The former NXT Champion moved to the main roster in 2018 after putting on amazing matches on the Black and Gold brand. He would go on to win the United States Championship in 2019. Andrade was constantly featured on WWE programming in the first half of 2020. However, he was last seen on TV around October last year.

Andrade’s last appearance with the WWE saw him and his manager Zelina Vega get attacked by the Fiend and Alexa Bliss. Vega was fired a month later and it looks like Andrade is looking to follow in her footsteps. Although, it is looking unlikely that the WWE will let him go. He may have to sit out the remainder of his contract.
