Rumors are swirling around the fate of WWE Superstar Andrade.
The former NXT and United States Champion was a part of the Raw roster, but has remained undrafted.
His former manager Zelina Vega has been drafted to SmackDown and his former tag team partner Angel Garza remains on Raw. Andrade, however, remains an undrafted “free agent” and many are wondering what that means for his future with WWE.
Reports have been teasing a return to NXT and rumors have been circulating that people backstage – especially Vince McMahon – no longer have confidence on his ability to be a main event player.
Wrestling Inc., however, is reporting that Andrade being “undrafted” is actually an excuse to write him off television for a while.
According to the report, Andrade is set to undergo a minor elective procedure that will require him to be out of action for a month. According to their sources, that is the reason Andrade remains a free agent and that there are actually plans to push him when he returns.
It should be noted that Andrade’s real-life girlfriend Charlotte Flair is also off TV for “elective surgery” and she was still drafted to Raw.
The only other free agent right now is Mickie James, who is also currently out of action because of a broken nose.
