Sammy Guevara has been suspended by All Elite Wrestling until further notice and his pay is being donated to Women’s Center of Jacksonville for the duration of his suspension.
In a statement issued by AEW following the news that emerged from an old podcast where he said he wanted to “rape” Sasha Banks, the company condemned the offensive words.
The full statement reads, “AEW insists on doing our part to create a world of understanding and respect for humankind. We therefore strongly condemn the extremely offensive and hurtful words of Sammy Guevara. As such, effective immediately, Sammy is suspended without pay until further notice. Sammy has agreed to undergo extensive sensitivity training and, upon completion, his future status with the company will be re-evaluated.”
Guevara also compared an old photo of a young Ricochet to Banks after Banks joked on Twitter that she and Bayley are better than Le Sex Gods.
