Bandido impressed fans over the years, and that is a big reason why AEW had him compete against Chris Jericho on Dynamite last year. Bandido’s contract status after that was always a topic of discussion, and that’s why he finally inked a deal with Tony Khan’s company. That being said, Bandido has been out of action for a long time and suffered a setback recently. Now the timeline for his in-ring return from injury has been unveiled.
As previously reported, Bandido will require another surgery, because his wrist is not in good shape. According to Dave Meltzer on The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it was noted that Bandido is expected to make his in-ring return in the summer of next year, which is still quite a few months away.
It remains to be seen what AEW will have planned for Bandido after his return next year, as the landscape of the company has changed significantly since June this year and will undergo even more changes by the Summer of 2024.
