Eddie Kingston made his AEW debut back in July 2020, where he competed against Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship during his open challenge. Since then he has become one of the mainstays of the company.
Ringside News reported that Kingston and Sammy Guevara recently got into an altercation backstage. We were told that “Eddie is suspended” after a dispute with Sammy Guevara went horribly.
According to Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, the issue between the two began after Eddie got mad due to Sammy Guevara not clearing the content of a promo that ended up being edited off a show.
We’re told that Eddie Kingston was mad because Sammy Guevara hadn’t spoken with Eddie or cleared the content of a promo that ended up being edited off a show. The two had not conversed since the Blood and Guts show where Kingston threw Sammy Guevara off of the cage. We’ve heard that Kingston had asked to work with Sammy, who didn’t have people exactly angling to work with him, after his feud with Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page.
The original plan was for Eddie Kingston to win the All Out match. In the edited out promo, Sammy Guevara referred to Kingston as a “fat piece of sh*t,” which Kingston took exception to as he felt it buried the match if a “fat piece of sh*t” beat him.
The crux of the frustration, however, was how Sammy Guevara followed up with this after being perceived as difficult working with Scorpio Sky, Ethan Page and Sonjay Dutt in the months prior. After that, we’re told that Kingston had yelled at Sammy Guevara, who smiled at him. Kingston responded by pie facing Guevara. Sammy ended up being incredibly unhappy with this and Kingston was suspended for two weeks.
Eddie Kingston vs Sammy Guevara is also likely off the AEW All Out card. We wonder if the match will end up happening at all, as all signs point towards it not taking place at AEW All Out.
