Andrade arrived in AEW on tonight’s Double or Nothing fallout edition of Dynamite.
As Mark Henry and Tony Schiavone were talking in the ring on tonight's show, Vickie Guerrero came in and booted them both out. She then introduced the debuting Andrade, who is going by the name Andrade El Idolo outside of WWE. He cut a short promo where he said that he used to say that he was the face of Latinos, but today he will say that he will be the new face of All Elite Wrestling.
AEW later confirmed that he had officially signed with the company.
After requesting to be released from WWE, Andrade had his request granted on March 21 of this year. He had spent months off WWE television prior to requesting his release.
Andrade appeared via video at AAA’s Rey de Reyes event back on May 1 and challenged Kenny Omega for the AAA Mega Championship, one of the four titles that Omega currently holds. That match has been confirmed for AAA Triplemania XXIX on Saturday, August 14. Andrade is also set for Federacion Wrestling’s pay-per-view debut on Saturday, June 19.
