The fans went crazy as Andrade made his way to the ring. In a brief promo, Andrade proclaimed that he was the face of Latinos, but then said, “Today, I am saying I will be the new face of All Elite Wrestling.”

Andrade, who was previously known as La Sombra, made quite a name for himself in Lucha Libre before coming to WWE. He enjoyed a dominant run in NXT as he became the NXT Champion. He soon went to the main roster.

On the main roster, he allied himself with Zelina Vega and Angel Garza. Andrade even won the United States Championship, but his run subsided after this. Idolo was released earlier this year without the 90-day no-compete clause.

As of now, Andrade could go in multiple directions. However, the main possibility is Andrade would challenge AEW World Champion Kenny Omega as he claimed previously.

Although we are not sure, it would be better if El Idolo continues pairing up with Vickie Guerrero in AEW. Vickie is notorious for her hellish mic skills, and Andrade is not fluent in English yet.
