Andrade El Idolo came with a lot of hype to AEW and fans wanted him to succeed in a big way. None of that happened as he was largely involved in forgettable feuds, despite some great matches. He has been out of action for a while now and it appears Idolo will be returning to the ring sooner than expected.

Andrade had suffered an injury and had to undergo surgery after a trios tag team match on House of The Dragon special edition of AEW Dynamite back in August last year. He clearly took time off and made the most of it by transforming himself.

As previously reported, it was officially announced that Andrade El Idolo will be making his return to AEW television as part of AEW Collision. In fact, Idolo legitimately had no idea he was going to be on the show.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that Andrade El Idolo will be making his in-ring return two days before AEW Collision in Mexico for a show.


“Andrade will be back in time because Andrade booked…Andrade is actually working a show in Mexico two days before, which I believe is going to be the first match back. So he should be back on that show and ready to go after his surgery to repair a torn pec.”

AEW Collision will be making its debut on June 17th and fans simply cannot wait for its first show. We will have to wait and see whether Andrade El Idolo will end up getting a push this time around.
