Bandido has been sidelined since June as he went down with an injury while working a match that aired on AEW Rampage. He put over Konosuke Takeshita in a singles match where he suffered a wrist injury.
At first, he was given a diagnosis of a triangular fibrocartilage complex injury before getting a second opinion and underwent surgery the following month.
Bandido had been getting close to making an in-ring return before suffering a setback. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Bandido’s wrist hadn’t healed properly and needed another surgery.
