Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti went official with their relationship on New Year’s Day. In fact, Sammy Guevara believes his relationship with Conti is his greatest achievement.

Just about one year after Sammy proposed in the ring to his ex-fiance, Pam, Guevara and Conti tied the knot. It was then announced that Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti will put their AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship on the line against Dante Martin and Skye Blue this week on Rampage.

During this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Tay Conti had her last name changed to “Tay Melo.; Conti was actually the surname of Tay’s ex-husband. While they announced their divorce last year, Tay kept the surname on TV, which she had used in wrestling since 2017.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that Tay Conti was her married name. Since she is now married to Sammy Guevara, Tay switched up her last name. It should be noted that Tay “hasn’t been married for years,” but she just never changed her name until now.


The AEW star’s real name is Taynara Melo de Carvalho. In WWE, she went by Tayanara Conti, before joining AEW as Tay Conti in 2020. After her marriage to Sammy Guevara, it seems Tay will be using her real name going forward.
