Andrade debuted in AEW last June. He had his first match in July. Since then he’s had 13 total matches. Most of those were in service to a feud with Death Triangle that I’m honestly not sure who, if anyone, won, since it crossed over with Malakai Black’s program with Cody Rhodes and is now a feud between the House of Black and PAC & Penta El Zero M (which might finally see the Malakai’s mist lead to a meaningful character change with the Pentagon Dark tease, but that’s a whole ‘nother story).
There have been some really fun performances in there from El Ídolo, but he’s one of the primary exhibits for fans making the case Tony Khan’s roster is bloated. A timely topic with Keith Lee and Jay White now entering the mix.
Wherever you stand on TK’s talent acquisitions, we may finally be on the cusp of seeing the former WWE NXT & United States champion enter an AEW title scene. His recent “merger” with the HFO looks like it may have just been a vehicle to make Matt Hardy a solo act for his brother Jeff’s inevitable arrival. On an overall stellar Feb. 9 edition of Dynamite, Andrade’s frequent (and hilarious) attempts to purchase the services of the little boy who works for Mr. Stink at last set-up some matches.
And sign me the f*** up for a TNT title scene with Andrade, Sammy Guevara & Darby Allin.

The other stuff Sammy’s cue cards referenced are covered in the rest of the highlights from last night’s Dynamite below. As usual, AEW doles out YouTube videos slowly. But we’ve compiled what they’ve released as of this morning in a playlist, and tried to catch you up with the rest of the episode via Twitter clips below that.
