Meanwhile, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding Andrade’s fiance Charlotte Flair’s absence from live television. Rumour mills gathered steam as Flair mysteriously vanished from WrestleMania advertising a few days ago.
However, quashing all theories, Flair took to social media and tweeted: “I know everyone has been wondering where I have been.
“I tested positive for COVID and have been home resting.
“Thank you everyone for your love.”

Earlier, Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer had raised doubts around Charlotte’s WrestleMania plans and suggested that there is “definitely a story” there and predicted more skeletons to come out of the closet.
“As far as Charlotte and WrestleMania, I’ve been asking that all week and everyone’s avoiding me on that one,” Meltzer said. “There’s definitely a story that’s not the movie because if it was the movie it wouldn’t be hidden.”
“It’s definitely something that’s behind hidden as far as whatever the deal is with Charlotte,” he had said.
I know I give lots and lots and lots of criticism to Charlotte Flair but if this is all true then good on Charlotte Flair for sticking for her fiancé Andrade and wanting the best for him. I was going to make a separate video on this but I’m going to save it for the Raw Review!! pic.twitter.com/H6HVttCHRJ
