Several AEW Stars Dealing With Visa Issues – AEW and WWE are dealing with talent being out due to visa issues. Kenny Omega has been away from AEW due to this reason, while several NXT stars from the UK had been absent.
Some stars are back or have already made their returns, such as Ilja Dragunov, who returned on Tuesday’s NXT.
However, for AEW, Bandido and the Lucha Brothers (Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero Miedo) are out right now for this.
While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted these three stars missed this week’s Dynamite because of visa issues.
“A lot of people brought up what happened with Pentagon, Fenix, and Bandido. There’s visa issues, and it’s all through wrestling right now. WWE’s finally cleared it up, they had (Ilja) Dragunov back and (Meiko) Satomura’s coming back. So many of these people have had issues coming in. Here you are in El Paso, Texas, and Bandido, Fenix, and Pentagon would have been over like crazy on this show, and they were not even on the show. I mean on the card. They weren’t on Dark ‘Elevation.’ I knew they weren’t going to be on Dynamite, but they weren’t on Rampage either, and they probably would have been the most over guys on the entire show. I would think, I think Pentagon would have been the most over guy on the show, had he been available for the show,”
