Former WWE Superstar Andrade has claimed that he walked away from a contract worth $3 million per year when he left the company.

Andrade spilled the beans during an interview with Lucha Libre Online (quotes translated by Carlos Toro).

“I had a great contract with WWE, a great contract. Three million per year. Several million dollars per year, a lot more than plenty of guys coming up from NXT. I heard about some of those contracts. I made a lot more than those guys,” the former NXT Champion said.

As we previously reported, Andrade officially parted ways with WWE on March 21.

Andrade – real name Manuel Oropeza – signed with WWE in 2015. On November 18 2017 at NXT TakeOver: WarGames, he defeated Drew McIntyre to become NXT Champion.

As you might recall, Andrade’s former on-screen manager Zelina Vega was released by WWE in November of last year.
