Jim Ross – ‘Andrade El Idolo’s AEW Exit Is Unfortunate’



On a recent edition of his “Grilling JR” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross discussed the recent AEW departure of Andrade El Idolo.

Ross called Andrade’s AEW exit “unfortunate.” The Mexican star left Tony Khan’s promotion after losing to Miro at AEW Worlds End 2023.

Ross said, We haven’t seen his ceiling yet, in my opinion. The guy’s really good, and losing him is unfortunate for AEW because he always gave quality work. A very skilled guy. If I was guessing, and that’s something we’re doing here because I don’t have any clue as to what his future holds, I’d say it’s WWE. They’re always looking for quality talents, Andrade is a quality talent and certainly has earned his opportunities to move up the cards, whatever company he’s working with. He’s a main-event skillset guy, no matter what. But if I were a betting man, I would certainly lean toward Andrade to be a WWE guy sooner than later. They’re doing a lot of nice things with their Latin athletes. He fits the bill there very well. I’m a fan of his work, and I’m sorry to see him leave, but he fulfilled all his obligations and did a hell of a job for us. He’s a keeper, no doubt about it. So I’m thinking if WWE, like they have been, that’s a layup, I think. It’s just really good in that regard. So we’ll see how it works out. Quality talents always rise to the top. If you’re good enough, you’re gonna get noticed in the right way, and I think Andrade used AEW to get notice and to continue to develop his work. So I’m happy for him and Charlotte. Maybe they’re gonna be able to spend some additional time together because of her injury. So good for him. He’s a good guy, he’s a classy guy. Good worker, and I’m glad that he was here for a while. He helped the company, and that’s what you’re looking for.”

It remains to be seen which company Andrade will end up working next. According to recent rumors, the 34-year-old star could be headed back to WWE.
