Can you blame them? There are a lot of people under the WWE banner these days and that can make for some interesting decisions from the company. Some of them are in better spots than other and sometimes you see WWE make a move that leaves you scratching your head. That was the case with a release over the weekend and now we know how it is being received.

One of the bigger surprises from over the weekend was WWE releasing Andrade. The former United States and NXT Champion had not wrestled for the company since October and it was not exactly clear why. Apparently WWE just did not see much in him and finally released him. This was a surprise move from the company and it seems that some wrestlers are not happy with the decision.

Several current WWE wrestlers, along with several from outside of WWE, have commented on Andrade’s release, which was announced by the company following this weekend’s Fastlane pay per view. Andrade himself also commented on the situation, thanking WWE, Triple H and Paul Heyman for helping him over the years. There is no word on where Andrade will sign next.

WWE gave up a good one. Check out what Andrade can do:

Andrade vs. Humberto Carrillo - United States Championship Match: Raw, Jan. 27, 2020

FULL MATCH - Samoa Joe vs Rey Mysterio vs R-Truth vs Andrade - U.S. Title Match: WWE Fastlane 2019

Finn Bálor vs. Andrade: Raw, April 15, 2019

Opinion: I’m not sure why WWE felt the need to release Andrade. They have someone young, talented, established and able to speak directly to the audience in a second language. Why would you not want someone like that on the roster? WWE certainly did not think enough of Andrade to have him stick around, so now someone else is going to sign up a heck of a talent.
