• Sammy Guevara Issues Statement After His Controversial Comments Went Viral

As we noted earlier today, audio from a 4 year old podcast appearance of AEW wrestler Sammy Guevara went viral.

During the podcast, he said he wanted to rape Sasha Banks when he saw her at his WWE tryout (tap here to listen to the audio) and also made a disrespectful comment towards black women (tap here to listen).

Sammy has now issued a statement regarding his controversial comments and you can read it below:

“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.”

UPDATE: He also issued an apology to Sasha Banks:

“I also want to apologize to @sashabankswwe 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.”
