The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana, and Ortiz) lost to The Pinnacle (MJF, FTR, Wardlow, and Shawn Spears) in the Blood and Guts match on Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite.
Guevara spoke in an interview with Wrestling Inc about not wrestling in 105 days before this match.
“I haven’t gotten the opportunity to talk a whole bunch, so I feel like I’m the diamond just sitting here. Hey, whatever you give me, I’m going to make gold out of it. You put me in a battle royal with Jungle Boy, I’ll make a moment out of that. There’s 30 guys in there, and we’ll have some crazy apron thing that makes people think, ‘Whoa, these two guys!’ Anything you give me, whatever little moment I’m out there for, I’m gonna shine because I’m a diamond baby.”
“Man, I don’t know. I’m perfectly healthy man. I’ve been going insane personally just because you want to go out there and you want to go and kill it, especially when you see your friends doing really good stuff. I’m happy for them, but also, you get that itch where you’re like, ‘Yo, I need to jump in there.’ Well, I quit the Inner Circle, so I was out for a month there. Then I came back. Then I got my face stomped through a chair, had to get a tooth fixed, got cracked and now we’re building to Blood and Guts. And as much as I want to be out there, I also don’t want to wrestle just for the sake of wrestling. I want the stuff I do to matter. I can go and have a bunch of crazy matches, but if the people are not invested in these matches, what’s the point of doing them?”
