As previously reported, Andrade spoke to Lucha Libre Online’s Hugo Savinovich (click here to watch the interview) about what led to his exit from WWE and some of the behind-the-scenes issues involving him and his fiancee Charlotte Flair. .
Andrade said he had thoughts on seeking her release, but he finally made his decision last month. He said the wrestlers have been great with him and there is a lot of talent in the company, but a lot of people are complaining and not talking or asking to be let go. He praised guys like Ricochet, Aleister Black, and Angel Garza as talented guys who don’t get much out of creativity.
He noted that WWE told Garza to cut his hair because they were going to push him and he was glad there were plans to push him. Andrade said WWE hasn’t done much with Humberto Carrillo either, and Garza has a lot of charisma with some people making comparisons to Eddie Guerrero.
Andrade said he took leave in October to have surgery on his eyes, but was cleared in November and had not been used. Andrade said that when he returned backstage in February, he spoke to people in creative ways and gave them ideas. He also noted that Charlotte Flair had come up with ideas to involve her in her screenplay with Lacey Evans.
As previously reported, Andrade has opened up about the WWE Doctor misdiagnosing Charlotte as pregnant. Click here to read more with Charlotte’s statement.
