Last month, reports surfaced that Bandido had come to terms with AEW despite having interest from WWE. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Bandido chose AEW over WWE because he did not want to move from Mexico.

Bandido’s deal is reportedly for three years and has a maximum number of dates included.

What do you think of the reasoning? How will Bandido do in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
