If you caught All In and watched the 12-minute main event, then you were probably very impressed with Bandido even if you’ve never heard of him before. He was on the losing side of things and took the pinfall after a Meltzer Driver from the Young Bucks, but he’s still quickly becoming a hot commodity in indie wrestling.
Bryan Alvarez discussed Bandido briefly during Wrestling Observer Live where he explained why a guy like Bandido hasn’t been snatched up by WWE. The simple answer is probably that WWE simply wasn’t aware of the 23-year-old Mexican star.
“I’m a huge fan of Bandido. I’ve seen Bandido 3 times live in the last 2 months. I don’t know if there has been any WWE interest in him whatsoever. Mostly because I don’t know how many people there are actually aware of him.”
“If you work PWG, there are usually WWE scouts at PWG and they will kind of see some guys there. But if you’re not working somewhere their scouts are then you have to make a really big name for yourself for them to become aware of you.”
Obviously, WWE is aware of Pentagon Jr. and Fenix, but it still took some time and a lot of television appearances for both of them. Since Bandido was in the main event of All In, we can only imagine that he’s creeping onto WWE’s radar. But only time will tell if we see Bandido in WWE anytime soon.
