Heelish Sammy Guevara to defend the newly won title against former champ Scorpio Sky. Sammy Guevara wasted little time rousing fans and rustling up a challenger for his newly won TNT Championship Wednesday night on AEW Dynamite.
The three-time champ and girlfriend Tay Conti soaked in the boos from the crowd, clearly leaning into the fan hatred and playing more of a heel role. On the flip side, Scorpio Sky played his part straight as the former champ demanding a rematch, though Men of the Year partner Ethan Page was more direct, giving Sammy the choice of a rematch or a beat down.
Guevara accepted the challenge on one condition: he and Tay get a mixed tag match with some combination of Men of the Year and American Top Team. There is no word on who will team with Paige VanZant yet, or when that match will occur.
However, the TNT Championship rematch will take place next week on Dynamite, and Sammy declared that it would be a ladder match.
