During his run as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, Paul Heyman pushed a number of WWE Superstars including Drew McIntyre, Apollo Crews, Aleister Black, AOP and Murphy. Many wrestlers were reportedlyworried about their pushes after Heyman's removal and some Superstars have fared better than others over the past three months.
One Superstar who has seemingly fallen down the card recently is Andrade. El Idolo has often been in the background during segments with Angel Garza and Zelina Vega and he hasn't won a singles or tag team match since July 27.
A possible explanation for Andrade's recent decline has been revealed as Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon isn't as high on the former United States Champion as Paul Heyman was. Meltzer also mentioned he was told Aleister Black's push was in trouble following Heyman's departure and past reports have noted McMahon thought The Harbinger Of Fury's character would limit him on the main roster.
Meltzer said: "When Heyman got replaced… Aleister Black and Andrade were like the two guys I was told... that were really gonna be in trouble because Vince doesn't necessarily see a lot in them compared to what Heyman saw in them."
