• Sammy Guevara Issues Statement On Eddie Kingston Taking A Swing At Him Over Physique Comment
Eddie Kingston hasn’t appeared on AEW programming as of late and it is because he’s secretly suspended.
Kingston and Sammy Guevara had an altercation backstage, where Kingston took a swing at Guevara, because Guevara called him a “fat piece of sh*t” during a promo at AEW Rampage tapings.
Eddie vs. Sammy was scheduled to take place at next month’s All Out pay-per-view, but it looks like it won’t be happening anymore.
Kingston issued the following statement to PWInsider about his suspension:
“You know the truth. I wouldn’t lie. I was wrong for being unprofessional. That is the blind fact. He did what he did and the public can judge that but I know for a fact I was wrong.”
Guevara issued the following statement to Fightful Select about this whole situation:
“As a professional you communicate things that you don’t want to be said (like other people I’ve been in programs with and have worked with Matt Hardy, Jericho and others).
And I did communicate of what I didn’t want to be said in this angle and Eddie didn’t. But Eddie did not do the same and Eddie did not mention to me or the coaches or TK or anyone in AEW what he didn’t want said.
So after Tay’s and my match with Sky Blue and Dante I cut a promo on Eddie insulting Eddie and the fans as a heel. Which I know the thing everyone loves to do is hate Me & Tay so I’m the perfect person to play this a$$hole character for Eddie to ultimately beat at All Out.
I see what people say online about Eddie and his appearance. (Which anyone who legitimately shames Eddie for how he looks can go to hell, it’s the same people who shame me for being too small) So Sammy Guevara the character I could be the physical person playing that person that Eddie can shut up at All Out.
But Eddie did not do the professional thing and communicate to me, which if he did I never would have said it because the last thing I want to do is hurt someone for real.
So after the promo I get to the back and Eddie is flipping out yelling “YOU CAN’T CALL ME FAT” over and over as I’m trying to walk down the stairs in gorilla making a big scene.
People get in between us, Eddie tries to pie face me and he more like touches my face, it was weird. And everyone backs everyone up.
It was unfortunate because this promo was on a taped show and easily could have been edited (which they ended up doing anyways).
I know this isn’t Eddie’s first time being aggressive and getting out of control backstage. I know he had to do some kind of anger management after this whole thing.
This whole thing was very unnecessary but it is what it is. Live & learn I guess, onto the next we go.”
