Triple H had a lot of faith in Andrade when he was a part of the black and gold brand. La Sombra didn’t have the perfect start to his NXT career, but quickly bounced back and reached the top of the mountain when he won the NXT Championship.

Every match Andrade performed in stole the show that night. We’ve mentioned a million times and we’ll do it again – NXT’s first-ever 5-star match was between Andrade (then NXT Champion) versus Johnny Gargano.

Paul Heyman is another man who Andrade thanked, and rightly so. Heyman saw what the Mexican Superstar brought to the table. Hence, gave him a strong run during his reign as the Executive Director of Raw. His United States Championship victory also came at the time when Heyman was in-charge.

Once Heyman went, so did Andrade’s push. He slowly faded into unimportant storylines, and then was taken off TV when they had nothing for him. It’s no secret WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon had no interest in Andrade. But if it’s only because of him not being a English speaker, then it’s a very lame reason to leave a talented superstar.


Last but not the least, he thanked NXT General Manager William Regal. We all know how influential and supportive Mr. Regal is with everyone down at the Performance Center. There’s no doubt the ‘Real Man’s Man’ touched ‘El Idolo’s’ life in some way or another.
