It appears that more information is known regarding the All Elite Wrestling (AEW) contract of Bandido, as well as why he chose Tony Khan’s promotion over World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
In last week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that Bandido’s contract was full-time, has a length of three years and has the wrestler booked for a maximum number of dates.
Meltzer noted that he didn’t have the exact amount on how many dates Bandido will be used, but he was told “it is more matches than most AEW wrestlers work in a year now, so that shouldn’t be an issue, but that could change if they (start doing) house shows.”
Originally, Bandido was thought to sign with All Elite Wrestling after his Ring Of Honor (ROH) World Championship match against Chris Jericho on AEW Dynamite, however, he would also receive an offer from World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) that he was considering, and chose to mull over both offers before signing with anyone. He ultimately decided to sign with AEW.
Why Bandido chose AEW over WWE was strictly family related.
“In the end, he realized he couldn’t sign with WWE because he has a child in Mexico, his significant other doesn’t want to move from Mexico, and he doesn’t want to not see his child all the time,” wrote Meltzer.
