Report: AEW’s Eddie Kingston & Sammy Guevara 'moving on' from recent dispute

Kingston was suspended for two weeks due to a backstage incident involving Guevara.

Eddie Kingston and Sammy Guevara have agreed to "move on" from their recent dispute. 

According to a report from PW Insider, Kingston and Guevara sought each other out backstage at AEW Dynamite on Wednesday. They are said to have shaken hands, apologized to each other, and agreed that the issues between them are now in the past. 

Kingston is returning to the company after serving a two-week suspension following a backstage incident involving Guevara. Kingston is said to have "pie-faced" Guevara after objecting to comments said about him in a promo segment taped for Rampage. 

Kingston would later release a statement regarding his suspension. 

"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."

Guevara also released a statement on the incident. 

"So after the promo I get to the back and Eddie is flipping out yelling “YOU CANT CALL ME FAT” over and over as I’m trying to walk down the stairs in gorilla making a big scene. People get in between us, Eddie try’s to pie face me and he more life touches my face it was weird. And everyone backs everyone up," the statement reads.

"It was unfortunate cause this promo was on a taped show and easily could have been edited (which they ended up doing anyways)."

"[I] know this isn’t Eddie’s first time being aggressive and getting out of control backstage. I know he had to do some kind of anger management after this whole thing."
