As we reported last week here on eWn, there were some issues between Sammy Guevara, Impact Wrestling, and AEW that resulted in Sammy being pulled from the recent set of Impact Wrestling TV tapings. The reason for this was due to creative issues. While some initial reports said there was heat on Guevara, that is not the case.
According to a report from Wrestling Inc, the creative issues didn’t have anything to do with Guevara wanting an X-Division title win as some have speculated. Impact Wrestling’s booking for Guevara involved him taking part in tag-team matches and he asked for singles matches instead. This is what led to the creative dispute between the two sides.
As of this writing, Guevara will not be appearing on any Impact Wrestling broadcasts in the near future. With that being said, the original plans only called for him to be there for a short period of time before making a “surprise” return to AEW.
