It looks like Bandido is set to be All Elite sooner rather than later.
Last week on AEW Dynamite, fans got to see the debut of a former Ring Of Honor World Champion in Bandido. The match was a solid encounter, with Jericho coming away the victor in the end. It was reported shortly after that Tony Khan had offered Bandido a deal with AEW.
Now, Fightful Select have reported that Bandido and AEW have agreed terms.
Fightful Select has learned that former Ring of Honor World Champion Bandido has agreed to terms with All Elite Wrestling. Bandido debuted for the company on short notice in an ROH World Title match on the 9/28 Dynamite episode in a losing effort against Chris Jericho that got positive reviews. We haven’t heard that Bandido has officially signed, but he was offered a deal last week, and those close to him say that he’s agreed to terms.
Fightful Select reported this past weekend that Bandido was booked on short notice and struggled to get gear in time for the match. A chain of events unfolded that led to him piecing together what he wore for the evening. Several that were backstage spoke highly of Bandido’s demeanor and attitude in the situation, from not being able to get his gear, to being brought in to lose. He was visibly excited after the match and hugged Tony Khan.
We’ve heard there had been interest from numerous companies about signing Bandido in recent months.Fightful Select
Time will tell if Bandido will officially sign with the promotion this week.
