Towards the end of the match, PAC had locked Andrade in the Brutalizer. At that point, his manager Jose tried to come to his aid with a stun gun. Unfortunately for Jose, The Lucha Brothers arrived at the scene and took down Jose from ring side.

However, while Jose’s antics distracted the referee, Chavo Guerrero slammed his iPad on PAC’s back, which broke the lock. This allowed Andrade to roll over and pin PAC.

Now, while walking up the ramp, Andrade was confused and couldn’t quite understand how the lock broke. Jose filled him in and revealed that Chavo Guerrero slammed PAC with his iPad. Now, Andrade probably wanted to win the match by himself, and didn’t take Chavo’s help as intended.

He punched Chavo Guerrero and left him on the ramp as The Lucha Brothers punished him for slamming PAC.

Now that Andrade has dropped Chavo Guerrero from his side, this could be the spot which Ric Flair will occupy upon his rumoured AEW debut.

However, he revealed that when WWE released him; he didn’t know if AEW would contact him. At that point, the company hadn’t contacted him even though he was friends with Tony Khan.
