WWE has officially announced the suspension of United States Champion Andrade (Manuel Oropeza).
As reported last night, this is Andrade’s first suspension under the WWE Wellness Policy. It is not known what substance caused him to fail the test. With it being his first suspension, it will last for 30 days, leaving him eligible to come back February 27.
Andrade faced Humberto Carrillo last night on Raw. Carrillo gave Andrade a Hammerlock DDT on the exposed concrete floor, seemingly writing the character off for a while. It is not known what will happen with the United States Championship or Zelina Vega.
