Andrade made his debut on All Elite Wrestling yesterday during
the Friday night Dynamite live episode.
Using the name Andrade El Idolo, the former NXT champion was
introduced by Vickie Guerrero, who interrupted a segment
featuring Mark Henry and Tony Schiavone. Andrade said he’s
here to be the new face of All Elite Wrestling.
AEW confirmed that Andrade had signed with the promotion. He
will be facing Kenny Omega for the AAA Mega title at AAA
Triplemania XXIX on August 14.
Andrade was released from WWE in March after he requested to
be let go. Unlike others who were released, he did not have a
90-day no compete clause.
