Sammy Guevara has been suspended without pay until further notice by All Elite Wrestling due to comments that surfaced of the AEW star saying he wanted to “rape” Sasha Banks. No word yet as of how long the suspension will be, but Guevara will undergo sensitivity training during it. After it is completed, the wrestling organization will re-evaluate its relationship with Guevara.

“AEW insists on doing our part to create a world of understanding and respect for humankind,” the promotion announced on Twitter. “We therefore strongly condemn the extremely offensive and hurtful words of Sammy Guevara. As such, effectively immediately, Sammy is suspended without pay until further notice. Sammy has agreed to undergo extensive sensitivity training and, upon completion, his future status within the company will be re-evaluated.”

All Elite Wrestling also noted that during Guevara’s suspension, “his salary will be donated to the Women’s Center of Jacksonville.”
