Eddie Kingston Was Suspended After Backstage Fight With Sammy Guevara

— Eddie Kingston hasn’t been seen on AEW TV for a couple of weeks and apparently there’s a very good reason for that. Dave Meltzer of is reporting that Kingston has actually been serving a suspension for his part in a verbal confrontation with Sammy Guevara and that AEW “secretly suspended” him, though it’s believed he has now served his time.

— Mike Johnson of is reporting a slightly different and perhaps more accurate version saying that there was an altercation between the two in Minneapolis several weeks back and that not only was it verbal, but it turned physical as well. The story goes that when Guevara returned backstage, Kingston confronted him as he took issue with something that Guevara had said during his promo. The two had to be separated and Kingston was subsequently suspended and hasn’t been at AEW events since. The expectation is that he will be back next week.

— When reached for comment about this story, Kingston did not deny that he was suspended, stating: “You know the truth. I wouldn’t lie. I was wrong for being unprofessional. That is the blind fact. He did what he did and the public can judge that but I know for a fact I was wrong.”
