Bandido has signed a full-time contract with AEW.
The 27-year-old challenged Ring of Honor Champion Chris Jericho in last Wednesday’s main event. Bandido lost the match, but a number of backstage names spoke highly of the Mexican star’s attitude surrounding his short notice booking. Bandido hugged Tony Khan after the match, and appeared visibly excited.
Bandido has been a standout performer on the world independent scene for over a decade, notably holding gold for ROH, PWG, PROGRESS and more.
