According to PWInsider, WWE officials were really impressed with Andrade “Cien” Almas’ performance against AJ Styles on last week’s Smackdown Live.
There is reportedly talk about giving Almas a big push and that push appears to have started as Almas was victorious over Rusev on this week’s Smackdown Live.
There was some concern that Andrade “Cien” Almas would get treated like some of the other wrestlers that moved up from NXT but it looks like there is some hope for him.
Almas wasn’t clicking with the fans when he was a babyface but things turned around for him in NXT when he was paired with Vega. He ultimately won the NXT Championship and became one of the top heels on the brand.
It looks like Vince McMahon is a fan so it looks less likely that we’ll see him demoted to the bottom of the card like they’ve done with Bobby Roode on Raw. A few weeks ago we were told that McMahon was also a fan of Almas’ look and sees potential in him as his next big Latino star, something he has been looking for since Rey Mysterio left the company. He is also said to be impressed with Vega’s confidence on the mic and at ringside. The belief within WWE is that Vega will eventually wrestle (she wrestled regularly before joining WWE) and she has potential to be one of their top female stars.
