Sammy Guevara is one of AEW’s brightest young stars and he continues to receive a great spotlight in the company. After turning babyface, it seems that the company is behind him more than ever. Chris Jericho also had his back from the beginning and that certainly helped him achieve big things in All Elite Wrestling.
While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Sammy Guevara went into how his relationship with Jericho started. Le Champion saw Guevara perform at the NWA’s 70th anniversary show, and he immediately took a liking to him. The rest is history as they started making waves in AEW.
“I didn’t know him prior to AEW. He ended up watching NWA 70, which I was wrestling at, and for whatever reason he saw my match and he took a liking to me. That’s one of the reasons I was brought into AEW and into the Inner Circle. But it was more as TV weeks just progressed and we were doing stuff on TV, Le Sex Gods, and we were texting back and forth just with ideas.”
“A real friendship just kind of grew naturally, it wasn’t a forced thing. I really can’t describe one moment, but it was pretty much just the weeks of TV. We just became better and better friends as time has gone on, through the good times and the bad times. He’s been there for me when I’ve needed it most. I love that guy and I’ll do anything for him.”
We’ll have to see what’s next for Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho. They are still close as members of the Inner Circle. Jericho’s recent loss to MJF might cause him to take a bit of time to regroup, but he will be back and The Spanish God will be waiting for him.
