Call it a disagreement. One of the biggest changes taking place in recent months has been various wrestling companies starting to pool their resources together. It is something that has made for some interesting changes and new opportunities, which is certainly a good thing for the fans. That being said, not everything is going to work out so well for everyone involved and that seems to be the case again.
The biggest partnership in wrestling so far has been that of Impact Wrestling and AEW. The arrangement has seen AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions the Good Brothers wrestling on the other companies’ pay per views. There is no telling who else might pop up on the other show in the future, but one name might not be making an appearance after turning down the idea.
According to Slam Wrestling, AEW’s Sammy Guevara was scheduled to be part of an angle in Impact Wrestling soon. However, after AEW President Tony Khan signed off on the idea, Guevara voiced some issues with the creative direction and spoke to Chris Jericho about it. Jericho got in touch with Don Callis and the angle was changed as a result.
According to PWInsider.com, the idea was to play off Guevara leaving the Inner Circle. Guevara did not arrive in Nashville until a few hours before the taping was scheduled to start. It is not clear what Guevara objected to but Black Taurus took Guevara’s place in the angle, teaming with Decay. The relationship between AEW and Impact Wrestling is said to be “golden”, with no bad feelings on either side.
Opinion: I’m not sure where this is going to go but it does not seem to be the best thing. Guevara is someone who has gotten in a bit of hot water before and I’m hoping that this isn’t a recurring issues. He has all the talent he could need and hopefully this isn’t something that holds him back. I could go for Guevara in Impact Wrestling, but that does not seem to be the case at the moment. Maybe this is a one off moment, but it isn’t the best sign.
