Sammy Guevara Addresses TNT Title Loss

Sammy Guevara TNT Champion

Sammy Guevara has addressed losing the TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes on AEW Rampage to cap off what has been a rough month for the AEW star.

Guevara captured the TNT Championship in memorable fashion when he defeated Miro for the gold on the 29th of September edition of AEW Dynamite in Rochester, New York. Since winning his first title in AEW The Spanish God defended the belt against AEW newcomers such as Bobby Fish, Jay Lethal, and Tony Nese as the tradition of the TNT Title open challenge continued.

Answering that challenge on the AEW Rampage that aired on Christmas night was the inaugural TNT Champion, Cody Rhodes. In the show’s main event Rhodes evaded the 630 and dropped Guevara with two Cross Rhodes and a Tiger Driver ’98 to become the first three-time TNT Champion in AEW history.

Sammy Guevara took to social media after the match to reflect on his loss:

“What a beautiful life, 11 years of Blood, Sweat & Scars got me here. The ups and the downs, I wouldn’t change a thing. It wasn’t my night but it doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be. The journey continues.”

Guevara’s loss comes in the same month that he and former fiancée Pam Nizio announced that they were no longer together. That announcement caused Sammy Guevara’s colleague Tay Conti to deactivate her Twitter account after several people erroneously accused her of having something to do with Guevara’s relationship status.
