"Sammy Guevara Set for AEW Return After Medical Clearance Post-Concussion and Celebrating Newborn" All Elite Wrestling (AEW) fans have reason to rejoice as Sammy Guevara has received medical clearance to make his much-anticipated return to the ring.
The dynamic wrestler had been sidelined due to a concussion sustained during the high-profile AEW WrestleDream event on October 1. Renowned wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer provided an update on Guevara's status in a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio.
"Sammy will be back in action soon," confirmed Meltzer. He added, "He was medically cleared over a week ago, but he chose to take additional time off for a very special reason."
Guevara Balances Recovery and Fatherhood
Guevara's absence from the last week of AEW programming wasn't just due to his recovery.
He and Tay Melo celebrated the birth of their baby girl on November 28, a joyous addition to their family. "At that point, with the birth of his daughter imminent, Sammy decided to focus on his family. But yes, he is ready to return to the ring," Meltzer elaborated.
Before his injury, Guevara was a prominent figure in AEW storylines.
He had recently joined forces with The Don Callis Family, engaging in a riveting feud against Kenny Omega and his former mentor, Chris Jericho. In what turned out to be an exhilarating match at WrestleDream, Guevara teamed up with Konosuke Takeshita and Will Ospreay, securing a victory over Jericho, Omega, and Kota Ibushi.
This triumph came just 11 days after Guevara's single match loss to Jericho at AEW Grand Slam. Guevara's return is eagerly awaited by fans and colleagues alike. His dynamic in-ring style and charismatic presence have made him a favorite among AEW's rapidly growing audience.
With his medical clearance now confirmed, the wrestling community is buzzing with anticipation for his upcoming matches and potential new storylines. As Guevara steps back into the ring, he not only brings his athletic prowess but also a renewed spirit, fresh from his recent venture into fatherhood.
