As previously noted, Eddie Kingston reportedly confronted Sammy Guevara on August 10th 2022 in Minneapolis (AEW’s Quake by the Lake Dynamite/Rampage event) and there was a verbal dispute that led to Kingston being suspended for two weeks.
In a video published to his YouTube channel, Guevara commented on internet rumors regarding him…
“I just wanna say real quick a couple of things. I just have a couple of things to get off my chest, I guess. There’s been so much random drama, random stuff that’s been said in the past week or so. It’s exhausting. It’s exhausting to see blatant lies said about me or shade being thrown. I’ve read so much random stuff and it’s just like where are they getting this? It’s just people making up so much stuff. I saw something that said I’m difficult to work with and not a lot of people want to work with me. Which I know is not true. But the problem is because of the internet, people don’t know the difference and when people spread these rumors, regardless if they’re true or not, no one fact checks. These things are taken as fact and they can affect me.”
“I guess that’s why I’m on here now because I’m not going to try to convince people that I’m a good person. People who already have their mind made up of me, they’re not gonna change their mind. It’s insane. What I will say…is you read so much of this stuff, then you start to question yourself, which I did. I start to wonder, am I a piece of sh*t? Am I this person that everybody is painting me out to be? I was starting to feel pretty down because I do try to do my best to just be the best I can. I try to help people when I can. I try to be as nice as possible and respectful to everybody no matter where they are on the card or what’s their position in life. I try to treat everybody the same.”
“Thank you to the people who support me. Thank you to the people who are on my side. I know it seems like there’s always some drama every so often with me but that’s what happens when you’re chasing greatness. People want to see you do good but people don’t want to see you do great. Thank you to the people who see what’s real. Just know I’m not gonna stop and I appreciate you guys.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
