WWE Shortens Andrade "Cien" Almas' Name; Now Going By "Andrade"

Another WWE superstar has undergone a name change.

WWE has altered the names of a number of superstars over the past two years. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan have been shortened to Harper and Rowan. Apollo Crews was shortened to Apollo but was soon given his last name back, and the next to be added to that list is former NXT Champion and current SmackDown Live star Andrade "Cien" Almas.

Before tonight's SmackDown broadcast went live on the USA Network, it was shown on the match graphic for Rey Mysterio and Almas' match that Andrade was listed as just "Andrade" and the announcers referred to him only by his first name as well.

As mentioned, Andrade is set to go one-on-one with Rey Mysterio during tonight's show so head over to Fightful's SmackDown coverage article to stay up to date with what happens during that match and the rest of the action that has gone down and will go down during the show.
