Andrade El Idolo will make his long awaited AEW in-ring debut at AEW Dynamite: Road Rager on July 7th.
On the most recent episode of Dynamite, the former NXT Champion announced that he will take on the high-flying Matt Sydal. The announcement came after Syadal interrupted Andrade the previous week.
After a lengthy period away from WWE television, Andrade finally left the company in March 2021. Following his exit, Andrade didn’t reappear again until he challenged Kenny Omega via a video package on Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide’s Rey de Reyes show.
Immediately after the Mexican star became a free-agent, he was linked with AEW. Although there was little word of a deal on either side. That is until June 4th when Andrade El Idolo arrived on AEW Dynamite.
Andrade El Idolo has only competed in the ring twice since October 2020, with both appearances coming during the last month.
