After a thirty-day suspension over resurfaced comments from an old interview, Sammy Guevara made his return to AEW tonight on Dynamite.
The main event of tonight’s show featured Chris Jericho and Jake Hager taking on Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus. In the closing moments of the match, it appeared as though wrestler Serpentico interfered to help Jericho get the pinfall over Luchasaurus.
Serpentico has wrestled on AEW Dark and is often seen in the crowd on Dynamite.
Inner Circle then proceeded to beat down Jurassic Express with Serpentico by their side, as commentary questioned if he had joined the faction. Moments later, however, he unmasked to reveal it was actually Sammy Guevara.
Guevara was suspended without pay on June 22 over a comment he made about Sasha Banks in 2016 that resurfaced on social media. He has since apologized to Sasha both privately and publicly. It was said that he would undergo extensive sensitivity training and, upon completion, his future with AEW would be re-evaluated.
