Andrade El Idolo and Sammy Guevara took shots at each other on social media and that frustrated the AEW locker room. The verbal assault turned physical behind the scenes this week.

Sean Sapp reported from behind Fightful’s paywall that the two superstars were involved in a backstage altercation on the October 5, 2022, edition of AEW Dynamite tonight in Washington D.C.

Another backstage altercation took place in All Elite Wrestling. Sources familiar with the situation claim that at the October 5 AEW Dynamite show, there was an “altercation” between Andrade and Sammy Guevara. The two had taken shots at each other in interviews and on social media throughout the week, and it came to a head at the Dynamite tapings.

Andrade was removed from scheduled mask vs. career match against Dark Order’s 10, with the latter remaining on the Rampage schedule in another match.


Those that we spoke to say that there was verbal altercation that got physical, with Sammy Guevara shoving Andrade, and Andrade throwing a punch. We’re not sure if the punch actually connected, but we’re told it was not part of a grander work. At least one, and possibly both wrestlers were removed from the tapings and sent home. TMZ has confirmed this report.

Andrade posted “respect me and I’ll respect you” on social media shortly after.

AEW aired the video package for Andrade’s Rampage match during Dynamite tonight even though Tony Khan had called off the match. Keep reading Ringside News for more.
