WWE has come to terms on the release of Andrade. We wish him all the best in all of his future endeavours.

The news broke at 3 AM GMT, just after WWE’s Fastlane, that Andrade is no longer with the company. Andrade requested his release earlier this month, which was denied. He then dropped the “WWE” from his Twitter handle and removed WWE from his bio. Earlier last week, Andrade confirmed that the rumours were true. He also noted that he didn’t know what the future holds, but he wanted his dreams to come true. If it was said WWE was not planning on granting his request, Andrade tweeted yesterday night “some good news to come.”

Andrade, who is engaged to be married to Charlotte Flair, last appeared on the WWE Draft edition of RAW in October of last year. He was taken out by “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in his last appearance. He then took some time off to undergo a minor procedure after the Draft but was never officially drafted to RAW or SmackDown. Andrade was scheduled to be out of action for around a month but has not been seen since then.

After strong runs in Mexico and New Japan Pro Wrestling, WWE signed Andrade to work NXT in November 2015. He made his in-ring debut in January 2016 at an NXT live event and had a successful run on the brand until being called up to SmackDown in April 2018 as a part of the Superstar Shake-Up. He is a one-time NXT Champion and a former one-time WWE United States Champion. Andrade last wrestled on the October 12 RAW Draft show, which was a loss to Angel Garza. When it comes to what the future holds for him, we’ll see that in 90 days, once his no-competition clause is over…
