Andrade recently spoke with Digital Spy and admitted he was nervous when he first met WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair as the boyfriend of Charlotte Flair.
“When we first met I was seriously so nervous – 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.”
He continued, “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’, but I have so much respect for her dad and professional respect for what he did in this business, he’s a legend. I’m so happy.”
Andrade seemed open to the idea of working on-screen with Charlotte, but he stressed that they both have their singles careers to focus on first.
“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.”
