Charlotte Flair’s reply to Vero Rodriguez definitely showed the world that she really enjoyed that fight between Canelo and Yildirim. Here’s what ‘The Queen‘ tweeted.

While Andrade and Charlotte Flair were in attendance for the fight, there was another WWE Superstar who watched the fight closely. It was none other than WWE’s latest marquee signing, ‘La Vera Loca’ Taya Valkyrie.

Who’s watching the @Canelo fight???

Why is Andrade not on WWE Television?

We last saw Andrade in October on Raw when The Fiend and Alexa Bliss took him and Zelina Vega out. Since then, a lot has happened. WWE fired his manager Zelina Vega, leaving the Latin Superstar without a mouthpiece.

Andrade and Angel Garza teamed together for most of 2020. While the latter is used in some capacity, Andrade isn’t used at all. As per reports, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon has no interest in the former NXT Champion.

Either way, we’re glad Andrade and Charlotte had the time of their life watching Canelo get the victory. As far as his in-ring return is concerned, we hope that too happens sooner than later.
