(Updated) AEW’s Sammy Guevara apologizes for 2016 statement regarding WWE’s Sasha Banks

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

AEW wrestler Sammy Guevara has come under fire over comments he made regarding WWE wrestler Sasha Banks during a 2016 podcast. “Bro, Sasha Banks, oh my God, when I was at the WWE the other week, I wanted to go rape that woman,” Guevara stated on the podcast.

Guevara took to social media today and issued the following statement: “I’ve made stupid, inappropriate and extremely offensive comments in my past. In my idiotic mind, I thought I was being funny in using words and terms that represent nothing but horror and pain. I am truly sorry for my hurtful words and actions, and I will never forgive myself.”

Powell’s POV: Guevara worked as an extra at the WWE event that he mentioned in the audio clip, which can be heard below. As of this update, Banks has not addressed the audio clip nor his apology. Likewise, AEW has yet to publicly comment on the matter.

Update: Banks has issued a public statement since our initial report. Likewise, Guevara added a second post in which he directly apologized to her. Each of those statements can be read below.

  1. Yeah then he liked a tweet excusing his behavior as a compliment. He can fuck right off forever.

      Probably because he was dumb enough to think it was a compliment and actually intended it that way. Liking a tweet that shows that he was an imbecile that thought using that word was a compliment about how attractive he found someone isn’t anything other than him acknowledging someone else for understanding what he was trying to convey.

      The woke police are the worst people on Earth and all need to go play in traffic until they lose.

      Sammy apologized, Sasha said it was okay, and nobody else has any business being part of it.

      • He liked the tweet after his apology. So he’s still not getting it? Or just doesn’t give a shit.

        Educate yourself before you run your mouth.

        • Did you read what the guy said? He said Sammy did something stupid and was stupid enough to think it was a compliment when he did it. Liking those tweets doesn’t show that he “doesn’t get it” or “didn’t mean it”, it just shows that he appreciates that some people understood the intention behind his comment, stupid as it was, rather than immediately jumping to the conclusion that Sammy is running around trying to rape women.
