As previously reported here on eWn, there is said to be heat on Sammy Guevara after a gruesome chair shot spot during his brawl with Matt Hardy that took place last week. In a report provided by Fightful Select, additional details have been revealed involving the spot and the amount of “heat” Guevara generated over the incident.
Apparently, Sammy Guevara throwing the chair was planned. However, Guevara used the wrong type of chair after he couldn’t find the more traditional folding version. Instead, Guevara panicked and grabbed a chair that was a lot heavier that he threw at Hardy and busted him open.
The situation was said to have been “chaotic” backstage after the mistaken chair throw spot by Guevara. While no one in AEW thought the spot by Guevara was intentional, multiple people backstage apparently thought it was reckless. Additionally, Matt Hardy, who is usually very calm, was said to have been heated after the incident. Also, he reportedly felt lucky that the spot didn’t result in something worse.
There was heat on Guevara after the incidents, and he did apologize for what happened. Since the show was taped, the spot apparently could’ve been done a number of different ways, which Guevara apparently didn’t realize.
