Sammy Guevara has had an exceptional run in AEW. The superstar recently had an opportunity to shop at Target ahead of AEW Rampage. He saw an action figure of his nemesis Eddie Kingston. Eddie has had some issues with Guevara. Kingston paid the price for his actions and was taken off television, but he returned recently.
He was scheduled to have a match with Guevara at AEW All Out, but instead, he had to face Tomohiro Ishii during the pay-per-view’s “Buy In” pre-show while Guevara would team with new wife Tay Melo against Ortiz and Ruby Soho.
In the weekly vlog, Guevara used his feud with Kingston to smash one of Kingston’s action figures and said why would someone want to sell Eddie’s action figure. The personal angle in a wrestling storyline has always proven beneficial.
WWE has been doing it for years, and now AEW does it too. While Kingston accepted that he was wrong in his altercation with Guevara, Sammy, on the other hand, has continued to make this feud as personal as it gets.
He even fought Kingston in the 2-hour special AEW Rampage Grand Slam. The match received praise for the work done by the performers and Guevera even cut a promo on television calling Kingston some bad names. The course of the conversation changed as Eddie fought his nemesis on the AEW Rampage Grand Slam show.
Eddie would lose the match despite winning it in the first place as he wouldn’t let go of the hold on Guevara. AEW official Paul Turner reversed the decision and made Guevera the winner. It baffled Kingston who fought the security staff and went looking for Turner.
Whether this feud is settled or would continue is something of the foreseeable future, but one thing is confirmed and that’s the fact that these two can put on a classic when the situation demands. They could do various moves that are difficult for others. With the way it ended at Rampage, it looks like the saga is far from over.
