We all figured Sammy Guevara would be returning to All Elite Wrestling after being indefinitely suspended, but EVP Cody Rhodes went to bat for the Spanish God while he’s out serving said suspension.
Cody was interacting with fans on Twitter as sure enough, a fan proposed the statement to “reinsert Sammy.” Cody didn’t shy away from it and addressed the request, Tweeting, “Sammy will return. And he will be a better professional wrestler, and a better man when he does.”
Sammy will return. And he will be a better professional wrestler, and a better man when he does.

Sammy is serving that indefinite suspension due to a 2016 podcast clip that resurfaced last week of Guevara making the inappropriate comment that he wanted to “rape” Sasha Banks after seeing her at the WWE Performance Center. Social media went wild over the clip and both Sammy and Sasha issued statements that the two communicated with one another over the matter. Despite this, AEW did end up serving Sammy that indefinite suspension and all his pay during that time will go to a local women’s shelter in Jackonsville.
After the suspension was issued, Guevara took to his YouTube channel to share another apology and stating that he’s changed so much as a person since then.
