#4 Andrade (WWE RAW)

Before joining WWE, Andrade ("Cien" Almas) had a long journey, which started with him working for his family's local Lucha Libre wrestling promotion. He then signed with CMLL and began wrestling under the ring name "La Sombra" with a mask. He later became part of the Los Ingonerables stable alongside La Mascara and Rush and won several championships in CMLL.

After spending five years in New Japan Pro Wrestling, he won the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. It was in November 2015 when he signed with WWE and started competing in NXT under the ring name Andrade "Cien" Almas. He formed an alliance with Zelina Vega and went on to defeat Drew McIntyre at NXT TakeOver Wargames 2017 to become the NXT Champion. He lost the title to Aleister Black after 140 days before being drafted to SmackDown.

WWE later shortened his name to just Andrade. He has had several top-level feuds with multiple WWE Superstars and won the United States Championship once. Angel Garza joined him and Zelina Vega, but there has been a lot of tension within the trio. It is to be seen whether Andrade will decide to bring back his masked version in the future.
