Sammy Guevara & Andrade El Idolo were both reportedly warned about fighting before their altercation backstage at AEW Dynamite.
Last night before AEW Dynamite went live on the air, there was a physical altercation backstage between Sammy Guevara and Andrade El Idolo. This comes after the two have been going back and forth on Twitter this past week, and Andrade told Guevara that he will “See you on Wednesday”.
On Wednesday night the seemingly inevitable happened with the two being involved in an altercation which reportedly saw Sammy Guevara shove Andrade, and Andrade swinging at least one punch at Sammy. This resulted in Andrade being sent home by AEW, and Sammy Guevara was able to stay and still take part in the main event he was booked for.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, both men were spoken to on Tuesday and told “no fighting”.
“Tuesday night, they were talked to. Both of them, and they were told ‘no fighting’ and Andrade was told that, if this is your idea, you’re not gonna get fired if you fight, but you will be sent home, and Andrade said ‘don’t worry nothings gonna happen, there’s gonna be no fighting.’ This was Tuesday night. Sammy was the same thing. Nothings gonna happen. They had security there, everybody was warned ahead of time”– Dave Meltzer
This conversation of course didn’t prevent much from happening as a physical altercation still took place. As things stand as far as punishments go, all we know is that Andrade was sent home and his scheduled match with the Dark Order’s 10 this Friday has now been cancelled.
