AEW star, Sammy Guevara has been on one heck of a run, which was why it was a shock to most that he didn’t have any matches lined up for Fyter Fest, which starts this evening on Dynamite (TNT). Well, all of that’s been put to bed because he finally has an opponent, and it’s another up and comer ready for an opportunity to make a statement all his own on the company’s largest of stages.
It has been announced that Wheeler Yuta will be facing Sammy Guevara on night one of Fyter Fest this evening on Dynamite, and the announcement certainly has many excited, and for very good reason.
Yuta has been making himself known on Dark and Elevation. He was trained at the Michinoku Pro Wrestling Dojo, and that dojo is certainly nowhere near small potatoes (perhaps a large and vast understatement), as Taka Michinoku made himself quite known during WWE’s Attitude Era, in New Japan Pro, All Japan Pro, ECW and so many other companies and territories over the decades. His experiences led to the legend status he now most deservedly enjoys.
Interestingly enough, Pro Wrestling Wiki lists Drew Gulak as a trainer of Yuta’s as well.
This young man still doesn’t have very much in print about him—he doesn’t even have a full page at Pro Wrestling Wiki, or an official page on Wikipedia, but he’s sure on his way for sure. Follower tweets on the original AEW tweet were very favorable and positive, and it’s safe to assume that we are definitely in for a treat.
Sammy Guevara is a dominant member of The Inner Circle (really which of the members aren’t? The faction is a dominant one and will certainly go down in history as being one of the best; there is surely no doubt about that).
Guevara got his start in the business early; the 27 year old has already done so much, having made stops at the National Wrestling Alliance, PWG (Pro Wrestling Guerilla), Lucha Libre AAA Worldwide, Lucha Underground, and that was all before signing with AEW in 2019. This was all in a span of six years or so.
In AEW he has certainly been making all of the right decisions. Two weeks ago, he was defeated by MJF on Dynamite (assisted by The Pinnacle of course), but his momentum is unquestionable. Wins and losses matter in AEW but you can’t stop a rocket that’s destined to crash through the stratosphere.
That feud certainly isn’t over and we’re sure to soon see more dealings between Guevara and Spears, or rather we hope we will, but of course time will undoubtedly tell.
Until then, tonight’s match is sure promising epic moments and it could mean huge exposure for a young upstart just getting his chance on TV (Yuta), and it could mean the cementing of a spectacular run for Guevara to boot.
As always, we’ll keep you posted on what goes down.
