More details regarding Sammy Guevara being suspended from AEW following match with Jeff Hardy

As previously noted, Sammy Guevara was reportedly suspended from AEW following his match against Jeff Hardy on the February 16th 2024 edition of AEW Rampage.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio of, Dave Meltzer provided more details about the situation…

“Originally, it was gonna be the Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega tag team. And obviously, you know, that fell through. And then it was gonna be Jericho and Sammy Guevara tag team for the tournament. Sammy Guevara suspended. So, we actually probably talked about the timing of his suspension. So it was on the February 14 show when he wrestled Jeff Hardy. So when he did the shooting star press, he nailed Jeff Hardy with his knee, right in Jeff Hardy’s face, and broke his nose. They came out, and they told him because of concussion protocol to finish the match, and he didn’t finish the match. He also did the GTH, which is a move where you need the guy in the head, which is exactly…Jeff did not have a concussion. He had a broken nose. But they didn’t know that at the time. At the time. It was, you know, suspected. So they were mad at Guevara for not going right to the finish. So I get why he was suspended.”

“In this situation, the doctors should’ve stopped the match, and it should not have been up to Sammy Guevara to take it home. And again, like what he was told, I mean, I guess whatever it was, the fact he did a GT H and nailed the guy with the knee after the concern of concussion was one of the reasons why it went the way it didn’t end up suspended. So anyway, yeah, so that was the deal with the Jericho and Guevara team is now out the window. So I guess it’s going to be Jericho and Hook.” (quotes courtesy of
