Report: Andrade Given An English Tutor Through WWE Talent Relations

"El Idolo" bracing for a bigger push?

Former NXT champion Andrade has received "high marks" from all of the important people backstage in WWE, per a report from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Everyone from live event producers to the talent have raved about him, and Vince McMahon himself is reportedly high on giving Andrade a very favorable push.

One area where McMahon reportedly feels Andrade is lacking, however, is in his ability to speak English. Per Meltzer's report, "Through (WWE) talent relations, they’ve given him an English tutor to speed him up in that regard. He’s been speaking more English in his promos of late because they want him to get more practice at it, rather than just rely on (Zelina) Vega to do it for him."

Meltzer notes that McMahon feels that Andrade's presently-limited ability to speak English hinders him as a performer, and it's because of his desire to push Andrade at or near the top that WWE insists on improving his English.

In his report, Meltzer questions why this would be necessary, as having Vega effectively communicate for the both of them (similar to Paul Heyman for Brock Lesnar) has worked out well.
