6 Wrestlers that will soon become free agents and where they should sign
#5 Bandido - Deal with ROH expires at end of 2019
Whereas Black has wrestled for almost 20 years, Bandido has been alive for approximately the same amount of time. He's broken out over the last few years while still in his early 20s. He was a part of All In in September 2018, but opted to sign a one-year deal with ROH instead of joining AEW or WWE. That deal expires at the end of 2019.
Bandido has been one of the more popular stars in ROH this year and his membership in Lifeblood has afforded him the ability to let his actions do his talking, rather than his words. He may not be the most fluent English speaker, but the language barrier isn't the same problem now that it might have been in years past.
Since he has his entire career in front of him, he likely won't be heading to WWE at this point. He may not want to be pigeonholed into the Cruiserweight Division, although others like Finn Balor and Ricochet have bypassed it. It all depends on what he wants the most out of a new deal and if he wants to continue the work he's done over the past year with ROH. Bandido might want to continue wrestling in Japan and ROH affords him that due to their partnership, however he is destined for bigger things.
Verdict: May re-sign with ROH but I think he will go to AEW.Modified 21 Dec 2019, 00:37 IST
