Sammy Guevara and Eddie Kingston were supposed to work a program together recently for the AEW All Out pay-per-view. However, creative differences lead to a real-life and physical altercation in the process between the two. Supposedly, the two men let bygones be bygones.
According to Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, Guevara and Kingston apparently made peace and moved from the whole situation that caused a ton of drama. No information on what was said between the two is not available at this time.
Fightful has learned that Eddie Kingston and Sammy Guevara squashed their issues backstage at today’s All Elite Wrestling Dynamite show. We haven’t learned of the context of what was said, but we’re told they had a conversation, shook hands and decided to move on from the issues that led to Eddie Kingston getting suspended for two weeks.
Kingston and Sammy were slated to compete at AEW All Out against one another, but it was scrapped after Kingston was suspended. During a promo to build to the match, Guevara called Kingston a “fat piece of shit,” which Kingston felt undermined the All Out match, that he was set to win. We’re told Guevara had voiced his displeasure backstage, and things didn’t look like they’d really be rectified until the story emerged, and things actually cooled down after that.
One source stated to Fightful that Eddie Kingston accepted full responsibility for his actions backstage. Another said that they believe both Kingston and Guevara are smart enough to make money off of the situation and work with one another, and didn’t feel as if things ever got so bad that they wouldn’t.
We were told Guevara was planned for the PPV weekend in some capacity, but haven’t learned what that entails. Kingston will face Tomohiro Ishii in a rematch from NJPW on the AEW All Out Zero Hour pre-show.
We’ve reached out to Sammy Guevara and Eddie Kingston about the story.
It’s cool that Guevara and Kingston were able to move on for the sake of their careers in AEW. Don’t expect them to be best friends, but making money together is important in pro wrestling.
