Bandido is a former ROH Champion, ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champion, and PWG Champion. In late September, Bandido received an offer to join AEW. Bandido appears to have finally picked who to put his wrestling future in the hands of, as he recently signed a contract with AEW.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, Bandido has signed his AEW contract. Following his promotional debut on Wednesday, September 28th Dynamite against ROH Champion Chris Jericho, the 27-year-old was initially offered contract. The outlet previously reported in early October that he had signed the deal.

However, he retracted it after learning that Bandido had also gotten an offer from WWE. He was weighing both while saying in an interview that he was leaning toward accepting the AEW offer. Bandido will be competing for PWG on Sunday in a trios match with Aramis and Komander against Latigo, Arez, and Black Taurus.

Bandido has recently wrestled in Japan, Mexico, and Belgium. The term of the contract and details on his capacity to work outside AEW are still unknown. AEW is Bandido’s third televised US-based organization this year, following Impact Wrestling and MLW.


The masked wrestler will face Rush on Friday’s AEW Rampage in the first round of the AEW World title eliminator tournament. Let’s see what great things Bandido has in store for us next. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
