Andrade recently spoke with Digital Spy and was interviewed about his time dating Charlotte Flair and meeting Ric Flair for the first time and admitting that he was nervous.
Andrade had the following to say when meeting Ric Flair for the first time:
“When we first met I was seriously so, so nervous,” Andrade said. “Now I’m so happy. I love Ric Flair. He’s a great person with me, he talks, texts me, sometimes we have dinner. He’s great with me now. When we first started [dating] I asked Charlotte, ‘Please don’t say nothing to your dad’, and she said, ‘No it’s my dad, he won’t care.'”
Andrade also stated that in the future there is a possibility that Charlotte and himself could team up for Mixed Match Challenge:
“Now she is focusing on her career and I am focusing on my career,” Andrade said. “But in the future maybe we’ll be a Mixed Match Challenge team; I know it’s a great idea. Maybe not now, maybe in a year or two years. I like this idea because I have a great connection with her outside the ring and inside the ring. Sometimes we work out together and when we train in the ring and talk in the ring, I feel the same connection to her as we have outside the ring.”
Ric Flair recently gave Andrade praise while being interviewed for WINCLY Podcast on Wrestling Inc:
“I think [Andrade] is fantastic. He is unique in how he can be a heavyweight but he can also work with Rey Mysterio,” Flair explained. “He is a phenomenal athlete, and not only that, he’s a very nice person #1, and a very classy guy. I’ve talked to Michael Hayes, I’ve talked to Hunter – they get how good he is… I think in terms of in-ring work, he’s one of the top two, or three, or four guys in the company. Because when I factor that, I take size into consideration. There’s nothing Rey can’t do that Andrade can’t do, and Andrade is 220 lbs.”
