Speaking with Muscleman Malcolm, The Spanish God was asked if any of the high impact moves have been prevented from being seen. Guevara revealed that the infamous match with Matt Hardy at the 2020 All Out pay-per-view was originally supposed to end differently.
All the time, all the time. Really, the ladder match [on the March 1, 2023 episode of AEW Dynamite], people thought it was crazy. I wanted it to be a lot crazier, but due to time constraints and whatnot, we had to cut a lot of stuff. There’s one thing in the infamous Sammy Guevara vs. Matt Hardy match at All Out , I was actually going to get thrown off the top of Daily’s Place that’s how the match was going to end. Unfortunately, because of the accident that happened early in the match, we had to go straight to a different finish. I want to go back to Daily’s Place just to get thrown off of it one day. One day, you know, a guy can dream.”
The controversial match would see Matt Hardy fall from a scissor lift and land on a concrete floor, causing Hardy to sustain a concussion. Despite a brief stoppage, the match was allowed to continue, with Hardy throwing Guevara off of a section of scaffolding to win the match.
