Sammy Guevara opened up his latest vlog by addressing the rumors of his heat with AEW higher-ups.
Recently, it was reported that Sammy Guevara was at the center of a creative dispute in the working relationship between IMPACT Wrestling and AEW.
Sammy Guevara had reportedly been chosen for an angle that would see him appear in IMPACT Wrestling, but when Sammy voiced his complaints about the creative direction of the angle, IMPACT contacted Tony Khan and Chris Jericho, leading to Jericho texting Sammy Guevara to return home after he had arrived in Nashville.
Fightful had heard of an issue regarding an AEW wrestler and their IMPACT creative, but the person was not identified until Sunday morning.
As first seen on Fightful Select, Sean Ross Sapp provided the following clarity regarding what he'd heard:
In a follow-up to the Sammy Guevara-AEW-Impact story, Fightful had been told during the IMPACT tapings that an AEW wrestler was supposed to come in but that someone "had issue with creative." At that time the talent scheduled had not been identified, but this morning was confirmed to be Sammy Guevara.
Guevara leaving Daily's Place on AEW Dynamite was used to set up his quickly planned appearances on IMPACT, but it might be a little while before we see in-ring integration from AEW wrestlers to IMPACT again. Several IMPACT staff and talent have told us that nobody from AEW was seen around at the tapings last week. There's always a possibility that something could be added to post-production as was originally done with Kenny Omega in IMPACT.
We can't speak to any alleged heat from either side or who specifically took issue with the creative planned.
Those that Fightful have spoken to on both sides indicated that it's nothing that can't be overcome.
In the opening skit of his latest vlog, Sammy Guevara was seen laying out in the snow without a jacket trying to make snow angels and when the person behind the camera questioned him, he said he didn't think you would need a jacket, because you read on the internet that he has so much heat.
The person behind the camera told him not to believe everything you read on the internet and the bit ended with him saying, “So, you're saying that if I believe everything I read on the internet, I am a fucking idiot?”
The rest of the vlog features QT Marshall, Matt Hardy, Brandon Cutler, and a controversial finish to the BTE Championship hand-standing competition.
