Andrade El Idolo can no longer use one of his former moves

AEW star Andrade El Idolo revealed to fans Twitter that he could no longer use his spinning elbow move.

Andrade replied, “I can’t use that move anymore,” to a fan who shared a video of him using the move on WWE Superstar Johnny Gargano while they were in “NXT.” He was in “NXT” from November 2015 to April 2018, when he was called to “SmackDown”.

While Andrade did not say this directly, the reason behind him not using the move in AEW is likely because it is similar to former AEW World Champion Chris Jericho’s Judas Effect finisher.

After WWE released Andrade on March 21, 2021, he signed with AEW and made his debut at last year’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view. Andrade is also currently wrestling for AAA Promotions in Mexico.

Back in August, Andrade reacted on Twitter to fans who criticized his AEW booking. His last AEW match was a casino ladder match at the All Out pay-per-view, which he lost to the returning MJF.

Andrade’s last match on “Dynamite” was on the August 17 episode, where he, Rush and Dragon Lee lost to The Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) in the AEW World Trios Championship tournament. Also after that match, Andrade and Rush turned on Dragon Lee and kicked him out of La Facine Ingoburnable.

One of Andrade’s most high-profile matches since leaving WWE did not take place in AEW, but on July 31, Ric Flair’s last match took place during the pay-per-view. Andrade teamed up with his father-in-law in the main event. The duo won the match by defeating WWE Hall of Famer Jeff Jarrett and AEW star Jay Lethal.
