Although Bandido is one of the popular stars in AEW, it seems he has no plans to stick around in the promotion forever.
During his career to date, the star has wrestled for some of the biggest promotions in the world, against some of the industry’s most famous names. After initially finding fame with CMLL, he branched out to ROH, IMPACT Wrestling, and New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
Speaking to SO CATCH by Hal 2, Bandido recalled visiting the WWE Performance Center, admitting that he’d like to join the company one day.
“At some point, I’d like to go to WWE. Not in this moment but I hope after, later. I was in WWE. They invited me to the Performance Center. They give me a Camaro for all my week to drive. That was amazing. I made good amigos. Chris Hero, I saw him in the Performance Center and now he’s really, really good to have friend. I love you amigo… He’s very nice, he’s very nice.”
Bandido made his AEW debut back on September 28th, 2022 when he challenged Chris Jericho for the ROH World Championship. In looking back at his debut, the Mexican star said that it was a “fantastic match” and a “fantastic night.
“I have bruises so he (Chris Jericho) broke my mouth and he kick very strong, my nose and I think that is a very important and fantastic night for me. AEW is like a dream to me, to my life. When I took a match against Chris Jericho, that was fantastic. Fantastic match, fantastic night, everything was amazing. I really, really enjoy.
Yeah (I was contacted for it several days before). I was landing in Denver Sunday, the morning and they called me, ‘Hey, you can come to AEW.’ ‘Okay, yeah, I wanna do it. That’s perfect. See you on Wednesday’ and it’s oh, okay… Easy deal. Thank you very much. Thank you Mr. Tony (Khan). “
Some Within WWE Pushing To Sign A Different AEW Star
Although WWE might not be able to get their hands on Bandido for a little while yet, they have reportedly got their eye on another AEW star.
It has been reported that some influential people within the company are pushing to sign Brian Cage.
The star signed with AEW in 2020 but has endured something of a mixed spell with the promotion.
Cage didn’t appear on AEW television for much of 2022, but began to feature more heavily from November onwards, albeit on Dark. The former FTW Champion has also made numerous appearances in the relaunched ROH where he is currently one-third of the World Six Man Champions.
