It was just over one week ago that word started getting around that Andrade had requested his release from WWE. This came after months of his being off television and reports that Vince McMahon didn’t see anything in him. His being in a relationship with Charlotte Flair, one of the top stars on the roster, who the Wrestling Observer reported pushed for TV storylines including him, did nothing to help his status within the company.
While it was initially reported that his request to be released was denied, WWE has just announced that the two sides of have to terms on his release. He got the usual send off for folks in this position:
We wish him all the best in all of his future endeavors.
Andrade has recently been trying to trademark “La Sombra,” leading to the obvious speculation that he will work under that name going forward.
