WWE superstar Andrade's United States championship reign may be near its end. According to Sports Illustrated's Justin Barrasso, El Idolo's days with the U.S. title are reportedly "numbered." He was recently suspended for 30-days due to a wellness policy violation, although sources do not indicate whether this is the reason he may lose the belt. Andrade is currently set to return on February 27th for WWE's Super Showdown pay per view in Saudi Arabia where he will compete in a gauntlet match for the Tuwaiq Mountain Trophy.
The storyline reason for Andrade's absence was that rival Humberto Carrillo DDT'd him on the arena floor during an episode of Raw to take him out of action. The two had been feuding since the end of 2019, including a pre-show bout at TLC, and a successful title defense for Andrade over Carrillo at the Royal Rumble. Andrade won the U.S. title from former champion Rey Mysterio on December 26th at WWE's Madison Square Garden supershow.
