WWE Superstars are trying to make a mark on the weekly shows as they head to Scotland for the first time for Clash at The Castle 2024. Meanwhile, Konnan gave his honest opinion on whether Andrade is unhappy after leaving AEW for WWE.

Andrade spent over two years with All Elite Wrestling after he was released from WWE in 2021. Apart from a few hits inside the square circle, the former NXT Champion was never fully utilized on Dynamite, Rampage, or Collision. Earlier this year, he returned to Stamford-based company under Triple H's regime.

Speaking on Keepin' It 100, one of the hosts questioned Andrade's recent post on X/Twitter. Konnan spoke about it and believes the star has no reason to be unhappy as he's with his friends and wife in the promotion. Moreover, the veteran stated that he's being used more and better than they did at AEW.

"He [Andrade] beat Apollo Crews... Compared to what they did with him in AEW, he should be jumping through hoops, dude. Maybe, you misinterpreted it. Why would he be unhappy? Act with his wife [Charlotte Flair] too when she comes back. Bro, he's there with his boys [Dragon Lee & Rey Mysterio]. I don't think he's unhappy," said Konnan. [From 01:00 to 01:35]

Spoiler: Andrade recently won a title ahead WWE SmackDown

Earlier this year, Andrade shocked the world when he returned to the Stamford-based promotion, as an entrant at Royal Rumble 2024. After the event, the former United States Champion joined Monday Night RAW.

Later, he assisted Rey Mysterio and the Latino World Order in their fight against Dominik Mysterio and Santos Escobar. The star teamed up with The Master of 619 and defeated the villainous duo at WrestleMania XL in Philadelphia.

After the glorious two-night event, Andrade got drafted to Friday Night SmackDown during the annual Draft. The former NXT Champion is currently in a storyline against Santos Escobar and the Legado Del Fantasma.

Meanwhile, he made waves in the Speed division on X/Twitter as he defeated Ricochet to capture the WWE Speed Championship ahead of a recent episode of Friday Night SmackDown. It will be interesting to see what the management does next with the star.
