Last night on Raw, Andrade defeated Rey Mysterio in what was an extremely gripping TV match. This is the second Raw in as many weeks where Andrade has pinned the former WWE Champion.
It seems like the former NXT Champion is getting somewhat of a push right now, and Dave Meltzer perhaps has the reason why. Meltzer is reporting in the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that Andrade has the support backstage of many WWE higher-ups.
“There are people who… he has people in power who are behind him, yet they don’t do anything with him so it’s kinda a weird thing, but I guess now is the start of attempting to do something with him.”
Meltzer is implying that after nearly a year of doing very little of note on the main roster since his departure from NXT, Andrade’s fortunes could be about to change.
Andrade is obviously a fantastic in-ring wrestler, so it is not hard to see why many within WWE feel he deserves a push. However, I am sure that the fact he is dating the daughter of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair helps his cause.
