Sammy Guevara is currently serving out a suspension handed out by AEW.  is reporting that the suspension stems from his recent match with Jeff Hardy on Rampage. In that match Guevara struck Hardy with his knee while executing a shooting star press.

The official stopped the match calling in AEW medical to check on Hardy. Hardy was bleeding from his mouth or nose but the match continued.

When things resumed Hardy and Guevara ended the match rather quickly. Hardy had to be helped to the back.

There were heated words after the match and both Hardys flipped Guevara off.

In 2020, Guevara was suspended by AEW over remarks he made about Sasha Banks in a 2016 podcast. Guevara had “joked” about raping Banks.

“AEW insists on doing our part to create a world of understanding and respect for humankind. We therefore strongly condemn the extremely offensive and hurtful words of Sammy Guevara. Sammy has agreed to undergo extensive sensitivity training and, upon completion, his future status within the company will be evaluated,” stated AEW at the time.

Guevara apologized for the comments saying:

“I’ve made stupid, inappropriate and extremely offensive comments in my past. In my idiotic mind, I thought I was being funny in using words and terms that represent nothing but horror and pain. I am truly sorry for my hurtful words and actions, and I will never forgive myself. I also want to apologize to [Sasha Banks] for my unacceptable comments. She’s an amazing person who didn’t deserve to be the brunt of my offensive remarks. I spoke with her earlier & she helped me learn a gigantic lesson & I thank her for that. Once again, I’m sincerely sorry.”

Banks responded by writing on social media: “Words like the comments he made, jokingly or not, have absolutely no place in our society!” she said. “We have to hold ourselves accountable for our actions and the words we say, and I hope this situation shows [Guevara] that. I hope from this point on, in order for growth and change within our community to take place, we all can continue to have these conversations.”

Guevara was also involved in a backstage altercation with Andrade in 2022 after which Andrade was suspended. Also in 2022, Eddie Kingston was suspended after getting into a physical altercation with Guevara concerning an on-air promo.
