Sammy Guevara organically got over with fans ever since his AEW debut, largely due to his solid in-ring skill and charisma. However, that all went down the drain because of his relationship with Tay Conti. Through all the boos, Guevara doesn’t believe the fans really hate them.
AEW President Tony Khan admitted that fan reaction to Sammy and Tay is unlike something he’s ever seen. In fact, Khan further admitted that he misread the fan reaction to Guevara and Conti.
While speaking to “Rasslin’ with Brandon F. Walker,” Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti were asked what changed for the fans to hate them. Guevara stated that he doesn’t think fans hate them, it is just that fans have exposed themselves to be fake.
Sammy said, “What changed? The people changed. We’re still the same people. She’s still the beautiful Tay Conti. I’m still the Spanish God doing all these crazy things in the ring. I’m still the same person. She’s still the same person,” Sammy said.
“But I don’t think people hate us. People expose themselves for being fake. The real people are still here. Our core audience, the people who have always supported us, still supports us.
Tay added, “I mean, we’ve done nothing wrong for people to hate us. Why would they hate us?”
Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti ended up winning the AAA Mixed Tag Team Titles at TripleMania XXX: Monterrey. They continue to be insufferable and fans simply can’t stand them even now. We’ll have to see what the company has in store for them.
