Guevara apologizes for rape comment, Banks acknowledges talk with AEW star

Sammy Guevara publicly apologized earlier today for his rape comment, a comment which he said during a podcast a few years ago where he described wanting to “f*cking rape” Sasha Banks during his WWE trial.

“I’ve made stupid, inappropriate and extremely offensive comments in my past. In my idiotic mind, I thought I was being funny in using words and terms that represent nothing but horror and pain,” he wrote. “I am truly sorry for my hurtful words and actions, and I will never forgive myself.”

“I also want to apologize to @sashabankswwe for my unacceptable comments. She’s an amazing person who didn’t deserve to be the brunt of my offensive remarks,” he continued. “I spoke with her earlier & she helped me learn a gigantic lesson & I thank her for that. Once again, I’m sincerely sorry.”

His comment received extra attention now due to the #SpeakingOut movement which has outed tons of wrestlers from all corners of the globe for domestic violence, bullying, sexual abuse, and assault.

Sasha Banks also posted on Twitter noting that she talked to Sammy and had an open discussion about the subject, saying such words, as a joke or not, have no place in our society.

“We have to hold ourselves accountable for our actions and the words we say, I hope this situation shows him that,” Banks wrote, signing the statement with her real name.
