Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas Among Stars Unhappy In WWE

Several Mexican WWE stars in both the main roster and NXT are reportedly unhappy with their position in the company.

After joining the WWE main roster in April, Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas is reportedly not happy with his position in the company.

These reports come following comments made by Dave Meltzer made on Wrestling Observer Radio earlier this month.

Dave Meltzer was speaking about Mexican star Rush, and if the WWE had interest in signing him. Meltzer stated “Of course WWE would be interested in signing him. I mean never say never, but one of his best friends in the WWE is not happy”.

Mexican wrestling site Super Luchas ran the story stating it was Andrade who was unhappy, and Rush ended up re-tweeting the article earlier this month

This isn’t the first time Andrade has reportedly had issues with his position in the company. In 2016, during an interview with Mexican newspaper Melenio, Andrade stated that when he was thinking about going to back to Mexico, but Alberto Del Rio talked him out of it.

When speaking to a source close with the MLW locker room, where Rush has recently performed as part of the Fusion TV tapings, he states “he isn’t the only mexican star” who is unhappy in the company.

Other Stars Reportedly Unhappy

Gran Metalik who is current featured on 205 Live and RAW as part of the Lucha House Party recently put up a poll on his Twitter weighing out going to CMLL or the independent scene. That poll was taken down shortly after.

Lucha Blog, who recently broke the story that Bandido signed with Ring Of Honor also mentioned that Raul Mendoza and Humberto Carrillo(Ultimo Ninja) have been having strong matches at live events, but are used as enhancement talent on television.

Carrillo’s former parter Garza Jr is set to have another tryout following offered a contract earlier this year, but failing the medicals due to injury.

The WWE recently announced that the company will have a “fresh start” when it comes to their programming, and with this may help some of the talent who have faded in the background. Andrade ”Cien’ Almas was featured in the main event of this past week’s Smackdown teaming with Daniel Bryan vs. Mustafa Ali and AJ Styles.

Katsuyori Shibata is looking to get cleared to step into a ring once again.

According to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Shibata is looking to get medically cleared following his recent appearance on the final night of the G1 Climax tournament.

“Katsuyori Shibata, he hasn’t been cleared, but he will be attempting to get cleared,” Meltzer stated. “He trains with his students, but the issue in question is whether it can ever be healthy for him to take head shots, and if he were to return as Katsuyori Shibata, can they work around that issue within the New Japan style.”

In 2017, Shibata collapsed backstage after a match with Kazuchika Okada at Sakura Genesis. The injury was caused by Shibata’s use of a headbutt, which he had been doing regularly since the prior year. Following his collapse, he was rushed to hopsital, where he was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma, which required emergency surgery. This caused Shibata to experience paralysis on one half of his body, and many to believe he would never wrestle again.

Following his recovery, Shibata was appointed head coach of New Japan Pro Wrestling’s dojo in Los Angeles, CA.

Shibata made a surprise appearance at the finals of the G1 Climax tournament earlier this month. Although he was not medically cleared to compete, he was involved in an angle with The Bullet Club, where he was beatdown.
