This is something that Andrade denied vehemently as he stated during the Q&A and in addition credited his matches with Rey Mysterio as a catalyst to what gave him his chances in WWE. Andrade would also list non-Hispanic talent that haven’t been used to their full potential in WWE and ultimately state that this is not an issue of race.

This huge Rey Mysterio WrestleMania title match is rumored. “One thing that I’ve always said and I’ve always talked about is that when the audience is clapping, cheering and screaming, you can’t tell if those cheers are for a guy that’s 5’2″, 6’2″, 7’2″. No, you’re cheering because the guy’s incredible at what he does. Rey really caught on quick, and I think a lot of it was Eddie telling him, ‘If you work with Dean, listen to Dean.’ I would hold him down. ‘Not yet.’ I kind of got him so he was selling everything and taking his time in between all the spectacular moves that he’s doing so we get the maximum benefit from the audience, and man, he just caught on like fire.”
