What’s the story?
WWE SmackDown Live star Andrade has been in a feud with legendary luchador Rey Mysterio for the past several weeks, however, according to a report from respected Pro Wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, WWE is seemingly very high on Andrade and has big plans in store for the former NXT Champion.
In case you didn’t know…
Ever since making his debut on the main roster for SmackDown Live, former NXT sensation Andrade has been impressive on the main roster as well, particularly following his recent set of matches against the likes of AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, and very recently against former WWE World Champion, Rey Mysterio.
The heart of the matter
Following their two classic matches on the blue brand, The Wrestling Observer’s respected journalist Dave Meltzer has shed some light on WWE is currently planning with Andrade and his on-screen nemesis Rey Mysterio.
According to Meltzer, the current plan seems like both Mysterio and Andrade are rather likely to end their program as a babyface tag team with, with WWE possibly looking at the latter as a top Hispanic babyface for the company.
“While not a sure thing, the direction looks to be that Mysterio and Andrade end their program as a babyface tag team, with Andrade getting the rub from Mysterio as part of strengthening of the tag team division.”- Meltzer stated (quote via SEScoops)
As of right now, both Andrade and Rey Mysterio are expected to be a part of the upcoming 30-man Royal Rumble match later this weekend at Chase Fields in Phoenix, Arizona.
However, reports of Andrade and Mysterio possibly teaming up in the near future seems like a definite possibility by the minute, given that another previous report has also claimed that Mysterio, Andrade, and Sin Cara are likely to form the newest three-man faction in the WWE.
