Tony Khan Says Bandido's Visa Renewal Has Been Settled

Fans haven't seen Bandido on AEW television since he wrestled Bryan Danielson on the January 18 episode of AEW Dynamite.

Bandido has continued to wrestle overseas and in Mexico, but did compete at GCW Eye For An Eye in New York.

Speaking on the ROH Supercard of Honor media call, Tony Khan said Bandido had to have his visa renewed, which caused a delay.

"Bandido is a great example of an international wrestler that I've seen in Ring of Honor and was on All In and is a tremendous talent. He signed with ROH when we started AEW. On ROH, he was the lineal champion. I really like working with him and he's one of a number of international wrestlers who I really like who have had to renew their visas. It's nothing nefarious, it's a process that, when you use international talent, for a company that does the bulk of its business domestically, then you're going to see visa renewals and you deal with it whether it's in AEW or English football. I was very excited to get Bandido's stuff all settled and he's been a great example of somebody that has a chance to excel in both promotions and internationally," he said.

It is unknown when Bandido will return to AEW television or if he'll potentially appear on ROH television as a former ROH World Champion.
