Andrade El Idolo came with a lot of expectations for AEW and fans were excited to see what he could accomplish in the company. However, his run with AEW has not been as good as fans wanted. He has been back for a while but now it appears Idolo’s AEW contract will expire soon.
Andrade El Idolo returned on the debut episode of AEW Collision and after a solid feud with The House of Black, he has not been able to accomplish much. This is despite the fact he still has great matches with the likes of Bryan Danielson.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Andrade El Idolo’s future in AEW. Meltzer noted that his AEW contract will expire soon and there is a chance he could make his way to WWE. However, he plans on making an appearance in CMLL before that as he wouldn’t be able to do that if he joins WWE again.
”He’s going back to CMLL, not sure exactly what week but probably relatively soon. On Friday night’s Arena Mexico show they did a tease of him going back. He had talked to AAA about going back there, and decided to go to CMLL. I think he just wanted to do it because that’s where he started. Because there’s no real money, even though CMLL’s drawing big crowds, there’s no real money being paid by CMLL. And Andrade actually charges a lot for his appearances in Mexico, so I think it’s just something that he wants to do.
And his deal is coming up relatively soon, unless it’s extended or something because of time off for injuries or whatever, but he thinks that his deal’s up pretty soon. So he wanted to go back (to CMLL) in case he ends up going to WWE.
He’s not made a decision on what he’s doing next, he’s not signed a new deal. But if he does go to WWE, he knows he can’t go back to Arena Mexico.
(His AEW deal is up) My impression is that it’s up relatively soon.”
Andrade El Idolo is currently engaged in a storyline with CJ Perry and Miro on AEW Collision weekly, while also competing as part of the Continental Classic tournament. We will have to wait and see whether he will end up leaving AEW in the end.
