Former WWE Superstar Andrade broke his silence earlier tonight during an interview with Hugo Savinovich on Lucha Libre Online’s Facebook page. and he detailed some things from his run in the company that he was not able to speak about until now.
We will have more details on what was said later but one thing that was notable was about his interview was about what he said about his fiancee Charlotte Flair and her absence from WWE TV.
Andrade said that a WWE doctor told her that she was pregnant. He says she took several pregnancy tests that were negative so Andrade and Charlotte went to find doctors themselves to get confirmation since WWE was not helping them get answers. Andrade added that Charlotte was pulled from storylines because WWE believed that she was pregnant. However, when it was proved that she was not pregnant, there was no apology given by WWE and the doctor called and said “you’re pregnant” and that was it. He says this happened with other talent as well.
In regards to why she was removed from the WrestleMania ads, Andrade said he has information on that but he is keeping that quiet because it can affect her since she is still with the company. He added that there is a lot of jealousy towards her from other female talent.
Charlotte’s issued the following statement, via TalkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy:
“Statement from Charlotte Flair’s team:
What Manny said about the pregnancy test in today’s interview is true, but a significant amount of context is lost in translation and we’d like to clear that up as best we can.
A few weeks ago, Charlotte received a call from WWE medical telling her that her HCG levels had come back high and she was being medically suspended for pregnancy.
That day, she took several home tests that all came back negative. A few days later, blood work and ultrasound confirmed there was no pregnancy. This was before any issues with Covid (she is currently medically clear).
This put a lot in context for her, mainly how small a woman’s career window is. The men are able to work well into their 50s while the women are seen as “older” in their early 30s even. For an athlete in her prime, these years mean everything.”
