Sammy Guevara Discusses His Babyface Turn

Earlier this week “The Spanish God” Sammy Guevara spoke with Bleacher Report, where he discussed his recent babyface turn. Guevara also discussed the upcoming Stadium Stampede, and more. Check out his comments below.

On what AEW fans can expect from him during Stadium Stampede:

“With Sammy Guevara, it’s a show anytime I’m on. Every time I go out there, I do my best to give people something good to watch. I think that’s pretty apparent with any match I have ever had with AEW, and Sunday isn’t going to be any different. I’m always trying to outdo myself. This is the second Stadium Stampede and I’m in a competition with The Pinnacle, but I’m also in competition with last year’s match. I want to be better than I was yesterday, so I am going to try to top what we did last year.”

On trying to be himself on AEW television:

“Being a heel is easier for me. It just comes naturally. From the first Dynamite, people were booing me. I guess I just have one of those faces people want to punch. That’s what I’ve heard. I try not to act to heelish or too babyface-ish. I just try to be me.”

On how his heel persona compares to who he really is:

“I feel like I’m a genuine dude. In wrestling, you’ll see a lot of people who are good guys on screen but in real life, they’re real pieces of s**t. I get told a lot that I am much nicer than people thought I was going to be.”

On his favorite moments in AEW so far:

“It’s hard. I’ve had a lot of big moments in AEW. Getting chased and hit by the golf cart. A lot of these moments I mention, you’ll notice they don’t end too well for me. Getting to wrestle Matt Hardy on PPV and main-eventing last year’s Double or Nothing were big moments. The first Dynamite, to me, felt like a main event.”

Says he’s beginning to slow down his wrestling style:

“Early on in my career, I was basically doing anything. I was taking powerbombs off the top rope, any crazy bump I can take. Recently, I’m trying to have some longevity and what I do is very dangerous. I have to pick and choose my moments now. I’m only 27, but I am feeling these bumps more than I did in my early 20s.”
