If there's been one consistent within SmackDown Live over the last few months, it has been that you can always guarantee a great match if you're seeing Andrade 'Cien' Almas on your television screen.

Despite going missing from time-to-time due to the deep talent roster, Andrade never fails to disappoint when booked for a match.

No-one has ever doubted the ability of Almas within the squared circle, as he showed in NXT he can put on five-star classics against the very best.

2018 was a frustrating time for Almas fans though as he made the move to SmackDown Live.

He was positioned against some of the blue brand's very best talent, such as AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan, but wasn't picking up any wins despite putting on great performances.

But 2019 could be about to become very 'tranquilo'.

As evidenced on last weeks SmackDown show, the chemistry between Almas and fellow luchador Rey Mysterio is incredible, and they went one-on-one in a thrilling encounter.

Rey Mysterio and Andrade put on a match of the year contender just 15 days into 2019 on SmackDown.

It's been well-documented now that Mysterio broke out an incredible modified flip-piledriver a week ago, the first of its kind for some while on WWE television, and the Master of the 619 once again dropped Almas on his head this week with a similar move.

It wasn't enough though, with Almas' business manager Zelina Vega getting involved, distracting the referee enough to not see the dirty tactics behind his back, allowing Andrade to hit a draping Hammerlock DDT for the pinfall.

That's now the second time in seven days that the former NXT Champion has scored a victory over the 2006 Royal Rumble match winner, and despite losing the majority of his name [it has been shortened to 'Andrade' from 'Andrade 'Cien' Almas'] there's clearly big things on the horizon.

And WWE fans are agreeing that 2019 really should be the year of Andrade.

Even Sami Zayn proclaimed how great the match was.

We may very well be seeing a man just starting a mega-push towards the top of SmackDown Live, and with the amount of fans he is gaining on a weekly basis, 2019 could be a very good year for the superstar now simply known as 'Andrade'.
