All Elite Wrestling offered Bandido a full-time contract with the promotion following this week's episode of Dynamite, reports Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
There is currently no word on whether or not Bandido accepted the offer. Nonetheless, it was extended to him following Dynamite's main event, in which he was bested by ROH World Champion Chris Jericho in a dynamic, well-received affair, which Meltzer awarded ****1/4 in the Observer.
A former ROH mainstay, Bandido has wrestled one match for the brand since AEW chief Tony Khan's March buyout, losing to Jonathan Gresham at 1 April's Supercard Of Honor. This was effectively an ROH Title unification match, as Gresham had been crowned as a consequence of Bandido, who'd held the belt since July 2021, being unable to make a December show due to COVID-19.
Competing primarily in Mexico, the United States, and Japan, Bandido had emerged as a red-hot global prospect prior to the COVID-19 pandemic's March 2020 inception. He has since fought back to prominence through such companies as PWG, AAA, and now AEW.
Perhaps we should expect an X Is #AllElite graphic soon.
