As previously noted, Sammy Guevara issued a public apology for making a rape joke about Sasha Banks during a 2016 wrestling podcast. AEW then issued an official statement announcing that Guevara has been suspended until further notice from the company.
Guevara published a video on his YouTube video regarding the joke. Guevara mentioned that he will be taking a break from social media and said the following:
"I just want to apologize to anybody I let down, to Sasha, to anybody I hurt with my words. 2016 me is not me today. 2020 me would never say those hurtful things. I used to think it was funny to do some kind of shock humor, to pop the room I'm in. A lot has happened in four years of my life. One of the things that has happened is me growing as a person. I understand now that the words I say can impact people more than I'll ever understand. They can hurt people more than I'll ever realize. You will not catch me saying these kind of hurtful things now in 2020. Whenever I do come back, I will be better. I'm gonna do sensitivity training and I'm gonna be a better version of myself."
