Humberto Carrillo challenges Andrade for WWE Royal Rumble


Despite having just made his return to Raw tonight, Humberto Carrillo has already issued a challenge to Andrade.

In a backstage interview posted on social media, Carrillo challenged Andrade to a match at this Sunday’s Royal Rumble for Andrade's United States title. He told Andrde he was tired of seeing him disrespect a legend like Rey Mysterio, and if he wanted to pick on someone, he should pick on him.

Last month on Raw, Humberto Carrillo faced Andrade in the finals of a gauntlet match to determine the next contender for the WWE United States championship. The match ended abruptly when Carrillo was laid out by Andrade following a hammerlock DDT on exposed concrete.

Andrade retained the WWE United States title in a ladder match tonight, defeating Rey Mysterio after interference from Andrade's manager Zelina Vega. Andrade was about to lay out Mysterio with the hammerlock DDT on the exposed concrete when Carrillo came in through the crowd and drove him off,.

The 2020 Royal Rumble will take place this Sunday at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.
