WWE wrestler T-Bar, formerly known as Dominik Dijakovic, recently accused the “Spanish God” Sammy Guevara of stealing his finishing manoeuvre.
In a now-deleted Twitter comment, T-Bar made the claim:
“Some little teenage virgin on AEW stole my finisher like four years ago after we did a show together. I’d steal something from his move set but it’s all just @KingRicochet moves.”
While T-Bar didn’t specifically mention Sammy by name, it was fairly obvious who his comments were directed at. Sammy was quick to respond:
Someone tell T-Bag the move actually belongs to Matt Demorest (the guy he stole it from) & I’m just trying to get the move to be seen since you know he’s never on TV.— sammy guevara (@sammyguevara) January 13, 2021

The finisher, a modified Argentine Backbreaker into a Knee Lift is used by T-Bar and Guevara, as well as by KENTA in New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Other wrestlers were quick to jump to Guevara’s defense, including Dax Harwood from FTR:
“Stole MY finisher”. MY FINISHER?! ? The guy is an idiot. He’s lucky to even be in the business.— Dax FTR (@DaxFTR) January 13, 2021
Many assumed that T-Bar and various AEW wrestlers were simply fooling around, but T-Bar made it clear that he wasn’t by referencing Guevara’s previous comments about Sasha Banks.
“Someone tell panda kid I had a singles match on TV last night, and I didn’t steal the move from some backyarder, I thought of it in a professional wrestling ring with @Kill4nova. Try being creative sometime, instead of, oh I don’t know, making jokes about r**e.”
Lastly, T-Bar decided to delete all of his tweets after adding: “You know what, everyone is right. This is a dumb argument and I’m deleting my contributions to it.”
