After an impressive debut vs Chris Jericho on last week’s AEW Dynamite, Bandido is now reportedly All Elite.
Bandido was called in to AEW last week to face Chris Jericho for the ROH World Championship in the Main Event of AEW Dynamite. A huge spot for a free agent, but a shot in AEW that many felt was overdue, and when Bandido got his chance, he majorly impressed in what was a great Main Event.
After the match, it was reported that Bandido was offered a contract by AEW, but there was no confirmation as to whether he had signed or not. It was then later said that WWE were apparently asking for Bandidos number before the match vs Jericho last week had even finished.
Now thanks to a new report by Fightful Select, we now know that Bandido has agreed terms with AEW according to those close to him.
“Fightful Select has learned that former Ring of Honor World Champion Bandido has agreed to terms with All Elite Wrestling.”
“We haven’t heard that Bandido has officially signed, but he was offered a deal last week, and those close to him say that he’s agreed to terms.”– Fightful Select
The report also notes how several backstage in AEW spoke highly of Bandido’s demeanour and attitude, clearly leaving a strong impression.
If Bandido’s AEW debut is anything to go by, theres a good chance the charismatic Mexican star could possibly get over huge in AEW.
