Welcome back. A return can be one of the most exciting things in wrestling, especially if it is one that you aren’t expecting. It can be a lot of fun to see someone pop up out of nowhere after a long time, but there is also something great about it happening after only a few weeks. That was the case this week, as a star made a return in a fairly big spot after being gone for a bit.
This week’s edition of AEW Dynamite featured a Casino Battle Royal as part of the series of matches to crown a new Interim World Champion. As usual, the match included twenty one entrants, with the final being the Joker. Andrade El Idolo made his return as the Joker, but did not win the match, which was won by Kyle O’Reilly. This was El Idolo’s first match in AEW since April 20, when he lost to Darby Allin in a Coffin match.
Opinion: This was a nice surprise, though not exactly earth shattering. What mattered the most here was having one of the more talented stars in AEW back in action, as El Idolo had been gone for a fairly long time. Now he needs something to do though, as he has been kind of faltering during his time in AEW. What matters is that he certainly has the talent though, as it will shine through pretty easily.
Who do you want to see El Idolo face? Who did you want to see in the Joker spot? Let us know in the comments below.
