Welcome back. You never know what kind of things might happen in wrestling to take someone off television. There might be an injury, there might be a storyline issue or it might be a personal matter that keeps talent out of the ring. Unfortunately it was the latter recently that took two big WWE stars off the road, but that hiatus already seems to be coming to an end.
According to Ringsidenews.com, Andrade and Charlotte are back on the road after a brief absence to deal with the death of Andrade’s mother, who passed away on June 7. The two missed this week’s SmackDown Live but Charlotte is scheduled for the live event in Denver on Saturday night and both are scheduled for the Sunday night show in Salt Lake City. Only Charlotte is scheduled for Tuesday’s SmackDown Live and it is not clear when Andrade will be back on television.
Andrade was ready to go before the bad news broke. Check him out before Super ShowDown:
Opinion: This is one of those situations where all that matters is how long Andrade needed to be away from the ring. If he is ready to come back already then fine, and if he isn’t ready to come back yet, that’s fine too. The whole thing happened less than eight days ago and that isn’t the kind of tragedy you just get over in such a short amount of time. It’s nice that WWE let Charlotte be with him as he probably needed all the support that he could get.
What is next for Charlotte? When will Andrade win his first title? Let us know in the comments below.
