Everyone’s favourite wrestling couple Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti have even more reason to celebrate after the couple captured the AAA Mixed Tag Team Championship.
The couple, whose antics are frequently seen on AEW television as well as on Sammy Guevara’s vlog, have become polarising in recent weeks with some fans seemingly put off by them flaunting their young love.
Nevertheless, Tay Conti has stood by her man in recent weeks as Guevara has been embroiled in a feud with Dan Lambert and The Men Of The Year. That bad blood has led to Conti being on the wrong end of a beatdown by former UFC star Paige VanZant and also resulted in Sammy Guevara losing the TNT Championship in a ladder match to Scorpio Sky.
Putting that run of bad luck behind them Tay Conti and Sammy Guevara competed for the AAA Mixed Tag Team Championship at the Mexican promotion’s recent TripleMania XXX: Monterrey show. During the match The Spanish God feigned injury with Conti teaming for much of the bout with La Parka Negra.
Sammy Guevara revealed his ruse towards the end of the four way match, allowing him and Conti to leave with the belts, if not the goodwill of the fans in attendance.
Guevara had granted Sky the ladder match for the TNT Title on the condition that his manager Dan Lambert would agree to have Sky or Ethan Page team with VanZant to face Conti and himself in mixed tag team action. Given that AAA gold has already been defended in AEW, it’s highly likely that when that showdown happens it is for Conti and Guevara’s championship.
