Andrade Reveals Why Federación Wrestling Debut Fell Through

The June 19 show was postponed five days earlier

Andrade El Idolo has explained how several missed payments of his fee led to his decision to not take part in Federación Wrestling's anticipated debut show last month.

Andrade, along with RUSH and other members of La Faccion Ingobernable, including Kenny King, Dragon Lee, and Bestia Del Ring, announced on June 14 that they would not be taking part in Federación Wrestling's debut on June 19, citing that 'a good agreement was not reached with the new company'.

It was then announced that the event would be rescheduled due to 'unfortunate logistical inconveniences', and Andrade has now opened up on his decision to not be involved in the show.

Speaking to Lucha Libre Online, Andrade said: "I don’t want to talk badly about the company because they did not treat me poorly or anything.

"We reached on an agreement on how the payments were going to be made, how I was going to manage myself, and how flights were going to be booked because we did not want to deal with any issues. They were late in several payments and I, simply, told them that I wasn’t going to go if the payments were not made and I did not want to have any trouble.

"I also spoke to RUSH to see what he thought and he said that he was the same, they hadn’t given him anything. We were five days before the show and we had not received any payments and we did not want to struggle and have any other complications with other talents. Because I helped RUSH contact some wrestlers for the show, I had to inform them so they did not come after him [RUSH].

"RUSH later handled that and I told him that if there was no deposits on a certain date, I was not going to show up. He kept giving me excuses and I decided to leave things there. He took off the worry of having to pay other wrestlers and many other things."
