There’s a lot more to it than that. One of the biggest wrestling stories of the week has been the backstage altercation between Andrade El Idolo and Sammy Guevara at this week’s AEW TV taping. It is the latest physical altercation between AEW stars and comes after El Idolo made negative comments about Guevara in an interview on Mexican television. Now we know some more about the situation.
According to Fightful Select, El Idolo was said to have been the aggressor and was at the taping for the sake of fighting Guevara. El Idolo reportedly threw punches at Guevara, who did not throw punches back. According to Wrestling Observer Radio and Fightful Select, this is why only El Idolo was sent home and not Guevara, who went on to get the pinfall in the show’s main event. The Observer had five accounts of the incident, none of which say that Guevara ever threw a punch, but one account did say he shoved El Idolo after being spun around. El Idolo is said to be doing this in an effort to get fired and possible return to WWE.
Opinion: This is a situation that is nothing short of a mess but it does seem to be centered around one person more than anything else. If that is the case, it makes sense to get rid of the person causing the problem. I’m not sure how AEW can fix things without just getting rid of El Idolo, but at this point that might be the best thing. If he is actively causing trouble to get out of there, just let him go in a case of addition by subtraction.
What do you think of the situation? How can AEW fix it? Let us know in the comments below.
