Former WWE Superstar Andrade El Idolo had a solid run in NXT where he even won the NXT Championship, but his main roster run in comparison left much to be desired. He was finally granted his WWE release after WWE Fastlane back on March 21st.

Since his release, fans have been wondering which pro wrestling promotion Andrade El Idolo will call home next. That question was finally answered as he made his debut in AEW last month after being introduced by Vickie Guerrero.

AEW also signed former WWE Superstar Aleister Black, who goes by the name Malakai Black in the company. The two are undoubtedly one o the biggest acquisitions made by the company in a long time.

While speaking to the New York Post, AEW President Tony Khan talked about AEW signing Malakai Black and Andrade El Idolo and stated that they are box office attractions for the company.


“They have huge, huge potential. They’re both well known wrestling stars already, and we’ve had some good success already in AEW in terms of people arriving. They had wrestled on a national stage before, they wanted to redefine their career and I love working with people like that. I love working with motivated people that really care that are passionate about wrestling. I think in the case of both Malakai Black and Andrade El Idolo, they’re very different, they’re both huge stars in my opinion. They both have potential to become bigger stars and box office attractions for us,” 

Malakai Black is currently engaged in a feud with Cody Rhodes while Andrade El Idolo is feuding with Death Triangle. We will have to wait and see how they will continue to be booked in the coming months.
