Andrade El Idolo Comments On His AEW Contract Status

Andrade El Idolo last wrestled for AEW during the Casino Ladder Match at All Out in September 2022, and while he was meant to wrestle Preston Vance on Rampage in October, he was sent home following an altercation with Sammy Guevera. Therefore, with plenty of free time, he underwent surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle in November. And now, while speaking to Lucha Libre Online, he has revealed that his AEW contract will be expiring soon, seemingly opening the door for a WWE return.

I’m with AEW, to make it clear. Soon my contract will expire. I had a tear in my chest and I got surgery in November. I was out for four months but soon I’ll be back. I was at the Hall of Fame accompanying my wife and to be next to a great friend Rey Mysterio. He’s the symbol for all the Latinos, Rey Mysterio.

As surgery was necessary, it appears Andrade suffered a high-grade tear, and that typically takes 3-4 months for a non-athlete to recover. However, with him being a wrestler, it would always be longer. Now though, he looks set to return to the ring, and it will be fascinating to see whether AEW brings him back even for a short period or simply lets his contract quietly expire.
