AEW Officially Announce Latest Signing
AEW has officially announced the latest signing to the company, picking up a big free agent after weeks of rumours about them joining the promotion.
On the 11th of November edition of Rampage, Bandido competed in his second match for All Elite Wrestling – but it turned out to be his first as the official part of the AEW roster.
Bandido is a part of the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament and picked up a big win over Rush to move on to the semi-finals of the competition. The winner of the tournament will earn an AEW World Title shot at Winter Is Coming in December.
During the match, Tony Schiavone noted that Bandido was a part of the roster and company President Tony Khan took to social media after he picked up the win on Rampage to announce the star as officially All Elite.

Bandido made his debut for the company on the 28th of September edition of Dynamite when he faced Chris Jericho for the ROH World Championship. As a former ROH Champion, the Mexican star lost to The Ocho as he attempted to reclaim the belt but impressed many backstage with reports suggesting he was immediately offered a contract after the bout.
