– The AEW All Out PPV was originally scheduled to pair Eddie Kingston vs Sammy Guevara, with the match almost confirmed for the past few weeks before things calmed down. It has now been announced that Eddie Kingston has been suspended from AEW. The suspension is said to have ended by now. Some genius hinted to Fightful that there was real tension between Kingston and Guevara, which led to a heated argument behind the scenes. The incident took place at the Minneapolis taping on August 10, 2022. Kingston is said to be upset with some of the comments Sammy made in his promo. A heated argument ensued, which probably almost turned violent when Kingston grabbed Sammy’s face. The two brawlers had to part ways and Kingston was suspended for a few weeks. He is expected to be back at the taping next Wednesday.
Kingston has since confirmed his suspension to The Wrestling Observer and PWInsider himself. He admitted that he was unprofessional and was sorry. It is not yet clear if Sammy was also suspended because he was not present at the West Virginia taping last week. Guevara has commented on the incident. The 29-year-old said that Kingston did not, as is usually the case, addressed in the run-up to a promo, topics he did not want to discuss. According to Sammy, it’s actually a normal process to avoid such tension, as there is no script in AEW. He told Eddie what subjects he wanted to avoid, while Eddie is said to have not. After Sammy called his opponent “fat” in the promo, Kingston accused him of the exact same and the situation escalated. Sammy said this is not the first time Kingston has behaved aggressively. Said promo was taped for AEW Rampage and eventually never aired. Guevara said that he acted only as a heel. Anyone who actually criticizes Kingston for his body is an idiot.
Fightful Select also reports that it was actually Eddie Kingston who wanted to work with Sammy Guevara and that after his feud with Scorpio Sky, Ethan Page and Sonjay Dutt, the geniuses who wanted to feud with Sammy were given to him. It is not necessary to stand in line. Some sources indicated that Sammy Guevara had very clear guidelines for fights and promos that her ex-fiancé was not allowed to mention. After their recent feuds, Sammy has an internal reputation for being difficult to work with. He is now accused of responding with a smile to Kingston’s complaint after the promo, which seems to have escalated the situation.
The original plan was for Eddie Kingston to win against Guevara at the AEW All Out PPV. Whether the match will still take place remains to be seen.
