“El Idolo” Has Arrived
Just a few short weeks ago, Andrade El Idolo made his AEW debut alongside Vickie Guerrero in what’s probably the biggest signing All Elite Wrestling has made in some time. The former La Sombra looks primed and ready to take on another challenge and conquer AEW. The “Face of the Latinos” has traveled the globe and succeeded at every juncture. Whether it was in CMLL, New Japan Pro-Wrestling, or the company up in Stamford, Andrade El Idolo has done it all. AEW provides another platform for the Mexican star as well as another world to take over. But the question on everybody’s mind is, who or what will he go after first? We find out as the legendary Jim Ross sits down with El Idolo come AEW Dynamite.

Two Monsters, One Cage
The tensions between The Pinnacle and The Inner Circle have reached another level that was previously thought impossible. When we all thought the war was over back at Double or Nothing in the Stadium Stampede Match, it turned out to be just another chapter in this seemingly never-ending war between the two factions. Each unit will be unleashing its monsters to make a statement against one another. Wardlow will be stepping into uncharted waters as he faces Jake Hager in an MMA Rules Cage Fight. “Mr. Mayhem” will be going up against one of the most dominant MMA Fighters in the world today.
Hager is 4-0 inside the octagon and is one of the most feared mixed martial artists Bellator MMA has in their midst. Wardlow does have one up against Jake Hager, defeating him one on one inside the squared circle. But the beast of The Pinnacle is stepping into the wheelhouse of an undefeated and dominant cage fighter. Expect blood to be spilled and egos to be shattered as these two titans collide. It’s Hager versus Wardlow expect bedlam to unfold as these two will stop at nothing to tear each other limb from limb come Friday night.
