Andrade is looking to move on from WWE.
Wrestling Inc first reported that Andrade requested his release from WWE on Monday at the Raw tapings. Fightful has since confirmed the report.
WWE has not granted Andrade's release at this time.
Andrade hasn't wrestled since the October 12, 2020 episode of WWE Raw when he lost to Angel Garza. Following the bout, he and Zelina Vega were attacked by 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss. He was not drafted in the 2020 WWE Draft and reportedly underwent a minor elective procedure in October.
He was expected to miss a month following the procedure but has yet to return to television.
Andrade recently changed his Twitter handle from @AndradeCienWWE to @AndradeElIdolo and removed WWE references from his Twitter bio. He also posted a photo on Instagram with the caption "Si no te gusta donde estás muévete no eres un árbol! Feliz fin de semana! If you don’t like where you are, move you are not a tree. Great weekend! #andrade #elidolo #outfit #style #estilo #salud #weekend”
He is a former NXT Champion and WWE United States Champion.
Fightful will continue to update fans on Andrade's status with the company as more is known.
