Andrade is one of the most impressive Superstars currently working in WWE. The 16-year veteran and Los Ingobernables founding member is finding success on SmackDown Live but there’s apparently a very good reason for that.
Dave Meltzer recently talked about Andrade’s match from the May 14 edition of SmackDown Live on Wrestling Observer Radio and revealed that Andrade is in a great position right now.
“They did a Four-Way with Randy Orton, Ali, Finn Bálor and Andrade, which ended with Andrade pinning Finn Bálor with a Hammerlock DDT. So even though Finn Bálor has already beaten Andrade, I think we’re going back to Finn Bálor and Andrade for the Intercontinental (championship). A lot of backing right now of Andrade, as far as a character.”
This is good news for Andrade’s fans, who have been following his career since his days with CMLL and New Japan Pro Wrestling. The Mexican Superstar has great in-ring ability, as well as huge charisma. He also has Zelina Vega by his side, who completes the presentation.
Andrade is perhaps just what WWE is looking for right now, because of his ability and his connection to the hispanic audience. But Andrade’s skill and potential cannot be denied and it’s entirely possible that he will be WWE champion one day.
That day may come as early as May 19, when he competes in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. If Andrade wins that bout, he will earn the right to challenge for either the WWE or Universal Championship, anytime during the next 12 months.
