The new chosen one? Every now and then in wrestling, you see a name who is going to get pushed no matter what. They might not be the most talented in the world, their talking might be subpar, they might not be that interesting or any combination of all of them. Other times though, you see what should be a can’t miss prospect get the rocket strapped to their back and the sky is the limit. While we might not be all the way to the second option, a talented wrestler might be getting their break.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, Andrade currently has a lot of momentum backstage in WWE. Andrade is currently scheduled to take part in the men’s Money In The Bank ladder match on Sunday and is expected to continue feuding with Finn Balor over the Intercontinental Title after the pay per view. In addition, he was recently praised for his English skills improving and he also won the four way match on this week’s SmackDown Live. Vince McMahon has been said to be very high on him in the past and FOX is looking to have more Hispanic stars on SmackDown Live when the show moves to the new network in October.
He was on a roll this week. Check out Andrade’s win on SmackDown Live:
Opinion: There are certainly worse ideas out there. Andrade is a very skilled performer and someone who could become a top star in WWE without much of a change. His success in Mexico shows what he can do and if he is given the chance in WWE, there is a real chance that he could become the next big Hispanic star for the company. Thankfully the company seems to be realizing that.
