Plenty of people were excited to hear that Andrade Cien Almas along with Zelina Vega was being brought up from NXT as a package. Those two were incredible in WWE’s developmental territory and gave a much-needed breath of fresh air to Almas’ fledgling career.
But upon his partnership with Zelina Vega, it drove him to the top where he eventually defeated Drew McIntyre to become NXT Champion at NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
Now Almas is set to finally make his SmackDown Live debut next week in London. It’s reasonable to assume he will win his debut match as well if WWE plans on pushing him at all and they really need to. SmackDown Live is deprived of top heels and if AJ Styles never drops the WWE Championship to Shinsuke Nakamura then they’ll need top guys for him to face next. But a worker like Andrade could be that wildcard needed to break out and shoot straight to the top.
For fans who wondered why the tremendous heel duo are debuting in London England, Zelina Vega had an answer. She said that when they do big things they do them big and it looks like things are going to change forever if they have anything to say about it. The funny part is with a team like Andrade and Zelina coming to SmackDown Live, things really could change in a huge way for a very long time to come if WWE books him properly as a top heel.
