Crews gained momentum in the fight after showing off a few skills including a moonsault and a standing shooting star press for the victory.
According to Bleacher Reports, the immediate ex-champion didn't respond well to the defeat handed to him by his opposition.
The victory would delight Crews after stopping the person who prevented him from participating in the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Reports reveal that the 32-year-old had booked his place in the men's event ahead of his clash with Andrade on the April 27 edition of Raw.
However, he tweaked his knee over the course of the bout, and El Idolo subsequently targeted it to such an extent the referee called for the bell.
Legit.ng earlier reported that WWE superstar John Cena’s ex-girlfriend Nikki Bella recently revealed the heartbreaking reason why her relationship with the superstar went south.
The WWE couple looked like a match made in heaven but behind the smiles, things were not necessarily as rosy.
They were on the verge of tying the knot, but eventually broke off their engagement in 2018.
Initially, it was looked at as just another celebrity split up which is quite normal for couples whose relationship is under the watchful eye of fans.
However, during an appearance on Maria Menounos' show Better Together, 36-year old Bella revealed there was much more to everything.
