Sammy Guevara wrestled in the main event of Dynamite despite an altercation backstage with Andrade El Idolo, while the latter was sent home.
Ahead of the October 5th episode of AEW Dynamite Tony Khan announced that Andrade El Idolo had been pulled from the upcoming Rampage taping. Andrade had been due to face the Dark Order’s 10 in a “Mask vs. Career” Match.
In recent days Andrade El Idolo has found himself locked in a very public war of words with Sammy Guevara. The former WWE Superstar appeared to spark the controversy in a new interview where he claimed that Guevara has complained about being hit too hard in matches.
The Spanish God then appeared to hit back on social media, branding Andrade a “favour hire” adding “be grateful b*tch.”
Unsurprisingly, Andrade quickly responded saying that he came to Guevara face-to-face over the issue, commenting that he wasn’t scared to get fired. Guevara then fired back once more claiming that Andrade was only hired because his father-in-law is Ric Flair, telling him to go back to WWE as everyone knows he wants to do.
It was then reported by Fightful Select that there was an altercation backstage ahead of the latest Dynamite taping, resulting in both men being sent home.
The report claims that the incident was a verbal altercation which turned physical. Guevara shoved Andrade who responded by throwing a punch at his rival. It is unclear as to whether the punch actually connected.
However, Guevara did appear on Dynamite and wrestled in the main event as scheduled. In fact, it was the former TNT Champion who picked up with the win as he teamed with Jericho against Bryan Danielson and Daniel Garcia.
Guevara was heavily booed throughout.
