A report has emerged that Andrade El Idolo is actively trying to get fired from AEW, following a string of incidents involving the star.
El Idolo was sent home from Wednesday’s (October 5) AEW Dynamite taping after an alleged backstage altercation with Sammy Guevara.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio:
“Andrade’s trying to get fired, we all know that. When guys want to leave, some will go to great extremes to do that. It’s happened with WWE, I’ve talked to people in WWE who’ve tried to get fired with some of the craziest things in the world, and I’ve told them it’s not gonna work.
“There were some crazy stories of people trying to get fired. Getting in a fight was never one of them, but there’s things much crazier than that from people who wanted to leave and get out and were not going to be allowed to do that because the company wasn’t going to release them.
“So now the situation is on the other front, where there’s a few people, and it’s not that many, it’s like three, that wanna leave (AEW), and there’s different stories and whatever, and Andrade’s one of them.
“Tuesday night they were talked to, both of them, and they were told no fighting. And Andrade was told that, ‘If this is your idea, you’re not gonna get fired if you fight, but you will be sent home’. And Andrade said, ‘Don’t worry, nothing’s gonna happen, there’s gonna be no fight’, and this was Tuesday night. Sammy was the same thing, ‘Nothing’s gonna happen’. They had security there, everybody was warned ahead of time.”
