Andrade asked and was granted his release from WWE a few months ago. Since that time, he has done work in Mexico and joined All Elite Wrestling.
Charlotte Flair, Andrade’s fiancee, did an interview with Bleacher Report and during it, she talked about Andrade’s decision to leave the company.
“I’m just so motivated and inspired by his decision. It was his dream to be in WWE, but I think he knew and felt he wanted more,” Charlotte said. “He could get more and maybe going and showing his worth and working on things that he needed to like his English, that’s what it was going to take to be where he wants to be. To do that on his own accord and not be scared of the future but to know that he’ll succeed and one day come back, I don’t know if that’s what he’d want to do. But he wants success.”
“He wants the platform,” Charlotte said. “He wants to get better. He wants to main-event shows. To see him come out the other night when he debuted, full-blown star. You can’t deny him, he is a star. Working on his English, I know things are going to get bigger and better and brighter for him and I support him 100 percent. It’s really inspiring to watch. He just went and did it.”
Flair also noted that leaving WWE would be “scary” for her.
“I’m WWE homegrown,” Charlotte said. “I think that’s what people forget. I’m a product of the PC. That would be so scary to me to leave my home, which is WWE. To know that he has traveled the world and that he’ll continue to travel the world and make a bigger name for himself, I’m so excited for him.”
