Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio confirmed that Guevara was pulled from the IMPACT tapings for not being willing to go with the creative that was agreed upon by IMPACT and AEW. However he said that rumors of heat were “blown out of proportion” and that what he was being asked to do, he should have turned down.
Mike’s Take: Well my bad for calling the guy a dumb dumb, whoops. Honestly it couldn’t have been that bad if both Don Callis and Tony Khan agreed to it. Sounds like they should have cleared it with Guevara first, but who knows. Guevara is a star in the making and if IMPACT wanted him to lose to a lower level guy, I get it. But surely that couldn’t be what they were asking could it? This company is leaking info worse than the White House so I’m sure we will all find out soon enough.
