Fandango had joined WWE back in 2010 in the fourth season of NXT, when it was a reality show. He had won the season with R-Truth being his mentor. He had made his main roster debut on SmackDown back in 2013.
He had made an impact in WWE when he defeated veteran star Chris Jericho in his debut match, that too at WrestleMania 29.
He had formed a team with Tyler Breeze known as Breezango and they had defeated Imperium to win the NXT Tag Team Championships, marking his first title in the company. He is set to be under 90-days non-compete clause and we will see what is next for him.
