Andrade El Idolo is set to be one of the featured stars of the new AEW Collision show but the star has had something to say regarding recent reports about him.
The star’s most recent outing inside the squared circle took place at All Out, where he competed in the Casino Ladder Match that was won by MJF. He was scheduled to compete against Preston Vance on the October 7th episode of Rampage but was pulled from the show and sent home from the Dynamite taping on October 5th following a backstage altercation with Sammy Guevara. Guevara remained on that episode of Dynamite and picked up a win in the main event.
A recent report from Fightful Select noted that the star is on his way back to AEW. The report notes that there have, however, been “speed bumps” along the way as he prepares to return to the ring.
According to Fightful, Andrade El Idolo was backstage at the May 10th episode of Dynamite and was originally scheduled to appear in segments similar to Miro and Thunder Rosa on the show. He reportedly didn’t want to take part in that type of segment, though Fightful was unable to confirm the reason for this. He was also backstage on May 17th and filmed a social media segment. It’s expected that he’ll be competing on the new AEW Collision program after it debuts on June 17th.
Now taking to social media, Andrade El Idolo has responded to the claims he refused an AEW Dynamite appearance and seemed to cast doubt on them:
“oh really!!! I don’t want to imagine what you will say behind my back!!! #ILoveTwitter
The main event for the first edition of Collision is set to be announced by Tony Khan on the 7th of June edition of Dynamite and fans will no doubt be waiting with bated breath to see if CM Punk is involved.
