Two weeks after being suspended by WWE for 30 days, Andrade has taken to Twitter to post a throwback picture of himself as a 13-year-old, accompanied by a motivational message about his wrestling career.

The United States Champion defeated Humberto Carrillo on the Royal Rumble kickoff show on January 26 but it emerged one day later that he had been given a suspension following a Wellness Policy violation.

After remaining relatively quiet on social media during his time away from the WWE spotlight, Andrade’s latest tweet shows that he is just as passionate about wrestling now as he was as a child.

Andrade’s WWE career in 2020

One of the most surprising WWE title changes of 2019 came when Andrade won the United States Championship from Rey Mysterio at a non-televised event at Madison Square Garden on December 26.

The Mexican went on to retain his title against Mysterio on two occasions on RAW in January 2020, including in a ladder match, before reigniting his long-term rivalry with Humberto Carrillo.

Carrillo defeated Andrade via disqualification on the post-Royal Rumble episode of RAW after interference from Zelina Vega, leading the RAW up-and-comer to plant his rival’s head into the exposed concrete at ringside with a Hammerlock DDT.

News of Andrade’s suspension broke shortly after the RAW segment, which was seemingly produced as a way to write him off television.

Sportskeeda's Gary Cassidy recently caught up with Paige to find out her thoughts on Becky Lynch's critics and the difficulties of being a female WWE Superstar in a male-dominated industry. Check out the interview below!
