• AEW Wrestler Recalls His Backstage Encounter With Vince McMahon & Triple H In WWE
While speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Sammy Guevara recalled the time he ran into WWE CEO Vince McMahon and EVP Triple H when he was doing extra work for WWE.
The Spanish God wanted to get his foot in the door, but ran into Road Dogg the first time. His second try led to Triple H opening the door.
“This time, Triple H answers the door. I’m like, this was not part of my plan. I do my same old spiel, and then he opens the door a little bit, showing Vince. And, he didn’t really open it for me to come in. I just squeezed myself through that door. And I go up to Vince and shake his hand. I do my spiel to both of them.
I’m like… I just want to let you all know that I’m going to make this business a lot of money. And blah, blah, blah. And then, Vince kind of chuckles… he’s like, ‘What’s your name?’ I’m like Sammy Guevara. He’s like, ‘Well, nice to meet you, Sammy.’ And Triple H opens the door, and they tell me, ‘well, good to meet ya.'”
This led to Guevara’s tryout later that year, but it wasn’t successful because he was only focused on Sasha Banks during it.
