Andrade El Idolo Shows Off Physique As He Works Toward In-Ring Return From Injury

Andrade El Idolo has been sidelined from action since suffering a pectoral injury, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been working hard in the gym.

"248 lb," Andrade wrote on his Twitter account. "nobody knows!! live in the present because the future is on the way."


Andrade's injury supposedly occurred during the Casino Ladder match at AEW All Out in September of 2022 as a shot at the AEW World Championship hung in the balance. While a timeline for his return currently remains unknown, he did recently reveal that he is almost fully recovered and ready to return to action in the near future.

That being said, it should be noted that Andrade's contract with AEW is set to expire sometime in the near future according to the man himself. Although it remains to be seen if he will stay a member of the AEW roster, Andrade posted several cryptic messages to his social media accounts during the latter half of 2022 indicating that he might be headed elsewhere when the time comes.


Beyond his injury, Andrade was purportedly suspended from the company in October of that same year following an exchange of words over social media and a heated backstage confrontation with Sammy Guevara. Guevara has kept busy since the incident, as he is currently gearing up to square off with Darby Allin, "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry, and AEW World Champion MJF in a Four-Way Match for the latter's title at the upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view later this month.
