Andrade reveals the behind-the-scenes of his release

In a recent interview, Andrade revealed what went behind his release. Despite being one of the most hard-working superstars on the roster, Andrade was not used properly.

Despite the plans for a rivalry with Drew McIntyre, Andrade was left alone. From his push into the main roster, he earned a lot more than his contemporaries, but he was unhappy.

“I’ve been with WWE. I had a great contract with WWE, a great contract. Three million per year. Several million dollars per year, a lot more than plenty of guys coming up from NXT. I heard about some of those contracts. I made a lot more than those guys,” he said.

Despite going on a lot of cash, he was happy to leave. As he said, “When the pandemic started, they put me with Drew McIntyre. Drew was great with me and behaved well with me in NXT and on the main roster. We had the matches, and a producer came to me and said, ‘Make sure Drew looks like a monster because he’s the champ.’”

However, Drew never pressured him for a spot. He and Randy Orton constantly pushed him to be better. “A lot of people treated me well, Drew too, and Randy Orton. [Randy] would ask me, ‘Why aren’t they using you?’ I didn’t know what to say and didn’t know what was going on. After that, I made the decision [to leave].”
