Andrade El Idolo was set to square off against Pac in a highly anticipated match at AEW All Out on September 5. Unfortunately, that will no longer happen as the match got postponed. Now Andrade will face a mystery opponent at All Out.
Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair were set to have a SmackDown Women’s Title match at SummerSlam but that didn’t happen as Sasha Banks couldn’t appear for the show. She remains absent from WWE television even now.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, he heard that one of the matches would be pulled from AEW All Out and the reason he heard was similar to what he heard about Sasha Banks’ absence.
“Andrade and PAC is off the pay-per-view. They are going to do the match on TV soon. They said it’s travel issues. I think it’s the same issue as Sasha Banks because that was certainly the word that I got. Yesterday, I was told that there was a match on the pay-per-view that was not one of the top 3 that would be off and low and behold…today, Tony Khan tweeted right around when Dynamite started that the match was off due to travel reasons, which sounds like a weird reason.”
Andrade El Idolo is still scheduled to face off against a mystery opponent at AEW All Out on September 5. A lot of fans see that as a perfect chance for Bryan Danielson to debut.
Sasha Banks still isn’t cleared for a return to the company. It remains to be seen what the real reason we for Pac’s match being removed as well as Sasha Banks’ absence.
