The real reason that Andrade was left out of the WWE Draft over the past few days and remains without a brand has reportedly been revealed.
As per Wrestling Inc, the Mexican star is undergoing a minor elective procedure and is expected to be out of action for about a month, and that’s why he wasn’t drafted.
Mickie James is the only other name from the draft pools that wasn’t picked and she’s out injured too with a broken nose, so it adds up.
It’s been reported that the latest plans call for both Andrade and James to land on the Raw brand, but there have been discussions about moving Andrade to NXT where he once reigned as champion.
Despite reports reiterating that Vince McMahon has never been a fan of Andrade, Wrestling Inc notes that he is expected to receive a push upon his return.
