What is Andrade's net worth? A look at pro wrestler's million dollar fortune as he decides his post-WWE future
It's been a week since the rumors of wrestling superstar Andrade requesting his release from WWE surfaced. It wasn't too much of a surprise as Andrade has been away from television for months, and was reportedly miserable at WWE.
Andrade last appeared on RAW at WWE Draft time in October 2020 and was taken out by 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt in his last appearance. He then took some time off to undergo a minor procedure and was scheduled to be out of action for around a month, but never returned. There had been rumors of Andrade returning to WWE NXT or possibly being brought back to RAW with his fiance Charlotte, but nothing ever came of it. WWE signed Andrade in 2015 after his successful runs in Mexico and New Japan. Andrade leaves WWE as a one-time NXT Champion and the one-time WWE United States Champion. He last wrestled on the October 12 RAW Draft show, a loss to Angel Garza.
Let's have a look at the wrestler's net worth and how it'll help his future after WWE.
While initially it was reported that his request to be released was denied, WWE finally announced Andrade's send-off saying, "WWE has come to terms on the release of Andrade. We wish him all the best in all of his future endeavors."
