Bandido Denies Recent AEW Contract Claims


Despite recent reports suggesting that Bandido had agreed a deal to join AEW, new comments from the star himself have thrown doubt on the situation.

Bandido debuted for All Elite Wrestling on the 28th of September edition of Dynamite in Philadelphia where he challenged ‘The Ocho’ Chris Jericho for the ROH World Title. As ever, the Mexican star was impressive in his outing but failed to defeat Jericho who has vowed to take out everyone ever associated with Ring of Honor.

Fightful Select reported that sources close to Bandido say that he has agreed to a deal to join the AEW roster although this is yet to be confirmed by the company. Although it was reported elsewhere that Bandido had been offered a deal immediately after the match with Jericho.

The report adds that many were impressed by the 27-year-old’s attitude especially given that he was booked for the Chris Jericho bout at short notice and had some difficulty getting gear together for the match as a result.

However, in an interview with Mas Lucha Bandido appears to have noted that he is still in talks with AEW but says he has also received an offer from WWE as well.
