Andrade is back in WWE just weeks after leaving AEW.
Andrade was released by WWE back in March 2021 after requesting to leave the company after a stint that saw him win both the NXT and United States Championships.
The Mexican star debuted for AEW just three months later at the end of his non-compete period but his time in Tony Khan’s company was plagued with controversy. Andrade was involved in a backstage altercation with Sammy Guevara just a few weeks after CM Punk’s infamous fight with The Elite at All Out. Many believed that Andrade was already looking for a way out of the company back then.
Andrade’s AEW deal ended at the end of 2023 and his final match in the company came at Worlds End when he was screwed by his manager CJ Perry who helped her husband Miro pick up a win.
Andrade Kickstarts WWE Career Once Again
As many expected, Andrade is now back in WWE, making his return in the men’s Royal Rumble as the fourth entrant.
The Rumble saw many surprises with Naomi returning to WWE in the women’s Rumble match and Jade Cargill making her highly anticipated WWE debut.
