Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti are America’s favorite couple. At least, that’s what she wants her fans to take them as. The duo are regulars on AEW and it is safe to say that fans have turned their backs on the two, or is it the other way round?
AEW President Tony Khan discussed the real-life couple during a recent appearance on Superstar Crossover with Josh Martinez. According to Khan, Sammy and Tay have created a polarizing reaction.
“I think Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti have created a very polarizing reaction. They were red hot as babyfaces both of them separately, I believe. I think Sammy was a great, young babyface coming off some really big wins.
“He is a great TNT Champion and Tay Conti is a great wrestler who has improved so much and, in fact, she was voted The Most Improved Wrestler of the Year award last year in the Observer Awards, voted by the fans.
“She also had so many exciting matches coming so cool close to winning the championship on pay-per-view against Dr. Britt Baker, then great matches with Jade Cargill, and a huge emotional win in the Street Fight teaming with Anna Jay against Penelope Ford and The Bunny.
“So, I would like to you know, say that they both have come so far individually but then together, they have really created this polarizing reaction. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen when they’re together and fans don’t like them. I think it’s interesting.”
Sammy would end up losing his TNT title to Scorpio Sky in the main event of tonight’s Dynamite. The Philadelphia crowd showed no mercy towards Sammy and Tay and bombarded them with boos every time the two got together in the ring.
