Andrade apparently dropping WWE US Title soon

Andrade was suspended for 30 days after he failed WWE’s Wellness Policy for the first time. He was written off of WWE television but kept the United States Championship. However, he might not remain champion for long.

According to a report by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, sources said that Andrade will be dropping the title soon. It was not mentioned if this decision had anything to do with his suspension.

From everything I have been told by contacts within WWE, the recently suspended Andrade’s days as the United States champion are numbered. (His 30-day wellness policy suspension expires on Feb. 27.)

There were plans for Andrade to face Rey Mysterio for a mask vs hair match at Wrestlemania, but that is not likely anymore. We will have to see what WWE plans for him upon his return.

    So it was reported just after he was suspended was that he did not drop the title despite his suspension because Heyman is high on him. Now we are being told he will be dropping it anyway.
    Once again proving that these stories that come out from “insiders” hold zero validity most of the time seeing as we now essentially have two different stories.
    If Heyman is indeed high on him, and he is the reason he did not drop the strap prior to his suspension starting, why would they be taking it off of him straight after? You might as well have stripped him of it beforehand as at least then it would actually have been worked into storyline better.
