Following reports of a backstage altercation, pie-facing, and a suspension, it appears that Eddie Kingston and Sammy Guevara have squashed their issues.
‘The Mad King’ had reportedly served a brief suspension from AEW after he swung at Sammy Guevara. This stemmed from ‘The Spanish God’ allegedly commenting on Kingston’s physical appearance in a removed-from-television promo.
The three-time AEW TNT Champion referred to Kingston as a “fat piece of sh*t”. Eddie, in retaliation, screamed at Sammy Guevara and pie-faced him. This left Guevara “incredibly” upset, resulting in Kingston’s suspension. On the matter, Eddie simply stated to Fightful, “I was wrong. That is all.”
PWInsider has now reported that ahead of the 31st of August edition of Dynamite, Guevara and Kingston sought one another out before talking and apologising to one another. The meeting is said to have ended with a handshake and both parties have agreed to move on.
The expected match between the two stars at All Out is off, however, with Eddie Kingston instead facing New Japan Pro Wrestling star Tomohiro Ishii on the Zero Hour pre-show. There is no word on what Sammy Guevara’s role on the show will be.
