Sammy Guevara quit the Inner Circle this week on AEW Dynamite. That wasn’t the only big event planned for the Spanish God, but there were some issues.
According to Slam Wrestling, Sammy Guevara was booked for an angle with Impact Wrestling, but he complained about the creative direction. This caused the entire angle to be pulled.
It was reported that “Impact’s first take on things was rejected but a second idea was given the greenlight by Khan.” Then on the day of the show, Guevara complained and Impact Wrestling had to contact Chris Jericho and Tony Khan about it.
Plans were made to shoot the angle the next day but Impact received a message directly from Guevara complaining about the creative direction. Impact in turn contacted Khan and Jericho with this news. Jericho reached out to Impact Executive Vice-President Don Callis about banning Guevara from Impact’s premises.
It was reported that plans were made to shoot the angle with Impact Wrestling, and then Sammy Guevara complained about the creative direction. When Sammy Guevara showed up in Nashville to tape the segment he received a message from Chris Jericho telling him to go back home.
Now “AEW management is apparently concerned that Guevara’s actions may have possibly hurt their relationship with Impact Wrestling.” We will keep a close eye on this story.
Fightful Select has confirmed this story and the AEW star’s identity as being Sammy Guevara.
