Scorpio Sky is the new TNT Champion after overcoming Sammy Guevara in a spectacularly violent Ladder Match on AEW Dynamite.
The rivalry between Scorpio Sky and Sammy Guevara has been increasing in intensity with every passing week, and things hit a new high on the April 27th edition of AEW Dynamite.
A week previously, Guevara grabbed the microphone to a chorus of boos, thanking the fans who supported him, before taking aim that those who he said had turned their backs on him.
The Spanish God said that fans were booing him because his girlfriend was hotter than theirs.
At this, Ethan Page, Scorpio Sky and Dan Lambert came to the stage. Page said that no one had come to hear Guevara talk, before Sky and Lambert also took pot shots at the couple in the ring to huge cheers.
It was then announced that Sky and Guevara would meet in a Ladder Match, while a mixed tag match involving the Spanish God, Tay Coni and Paige VanZant and an unnamed partner was also confirmed.
The Ladder Match in question devolved into complete and utter chaos from the outset. Both men took a series of death-defying high risks, while Conti made sure to make her presence felt on the outside. After delivering a vicious low blow to Dan Lambert, Conti was attacked by VanZant who ran in to make the save.

Both women continued to get involved in the match, while the two combatants searched for new ways to hurt each other. This culminated in the introduction of a ladder wrapped in barbed wire. Both men took falls onto the instrument of torture, before Sky sent Guevara to the floor one final time, leaving him to grab the championship.
After the match Frankie Kazarian made his way to the ring, seemingly setting up a match between the pair. Sky had promised Kazarian a shot at the title if he won.
Scorpio Sky is now a two-time TNT Champion, cutting Guevara’s reign short at just 12 days. Guevara only defeated Sky for the title at Battle of the Belts on April 15th.
