In a recent industry discourse, Sammy Guevara has shared his perspective on what could potentially be the most formidable collaboration in professional wrestling history - a talent exchange between AEW and WWE. Since its inception four years ago, All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has successfully formed associations with several global wrestling promotions.
The company's talent has graced and dominated arenas of IMPACT Wrestling, GCW, and notably, New Japan Pro Wrestling. This collaboration birthed the now celebrated annual pay-per-view event, Forbidden Door. Guevara, who is also known as the Spanish God, has proudly represented AEW in matches held in Triple A.
Simultaneously under contract with Tony Khan's renowned promotion, he also shares this professional journey with his pregnant wife, Tay Melo. The couple is awaiting the arrival of their first child, adding personal excitement to Guevara's professional victories, including his tenure as the former TNT Champion.
Guevara Discusses AEW-WWE Exchange
The Spanish God recently featured on the Rocker Morning Show, where he was queried about the prospect of a talent exchange between AEW and WWE - two of the biggest wrestling promotions in the United States.
While Guevara acknowledged that such a collaboration could be an exceptional treat for fans, he expressed skepticism about its near-term realization. "Competition breeds excellence. In the wrestling world, one should 'never say never,' but realistically, I don't see that happening anytime soon.
Nonetheless, if it ever did occur, I'd be completely on board. It would not only be an electrifying show that could shatter records but also a thrilling spectacle for fans. As to whether it will ever transpire, I honestly have no clue," he stated.
Notably, despite no AEW contracted talent having yet graced WWE, the rival promotion has opened its doors to AEW stars, featuring them as guest stars on its original network programming. In April 2021, AEW's Chris Jericho made an appearance on Steve Austin's Broken Skull Sessions, during which AEW was notably brought up in their discussion.
In addition, footage from the YouTube series Being The Elite was included in WWE's recent documentary - "American Nightmare: Becoming Cody Rhodes." The documentary chronicled Rhodes' compelling journey, tracing his steps from AEW all the way to his return to WWE.
