Sammy Guevara opens up on the moment he thought Sting got “killed” during a match

Steve Borden, also known by his ring name Sting, made his surprising debut in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) in December 2020. The Icon made his big debut in TNA on the June 18, 2003, one-year anniversary show and later left the company due to being unsatisfied with the contract presented at that time.

AEW star Sammy Guevara The Spanish God recently revealed his moment with Sting during a six-person tag team match that traumatized him for a short period of time. The superstar thought he accidentally ‘killed’ the 64-year-old superstar with his high rope maneuver.

Sammy Guevara sheds light on unknown Sting fact

Former three-time TNT Champion Sammy Guevara is one of the leading faces in AEW. The superstar has a lot of matches under his belt and has proven his worth in the wrestling industry. One of these matches was a six-person tag team match during the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event this year. The team of “Codebreaker” Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, and Minoru Suzuki joined together to face the trios of Sting, Darby Allin, and Tetsuya Naito.

Chris Jericho’s new partner, Sammy Guevara, looked over after Omega left due to Diverticulitis. While the match was underway, Guevara attempted a 630 Splash on Sting, who was set on a table. Sammy successfully delivered his move to take down Sting, but a while later, the Spanish God revealed in an interview that Sting was supposed to move during the splash maneuver.

In a recent episode of Insight With Chris Van Vliet, Sammy Guevara talked about the story when he thought he almost killed Sting due to an accidental top rope move execution. He added. “So, story about that. He was supposed to move. But for whatever reason, either the 630 is too fast or timing, whatever, I landed off. And I remember going through the table, and I feel his body on my back. And I’m thinking, Oh, I just killed Sting”.

“Oh, no, and like I land, kind of roll off that look at him. And then he pops up like a minute later, you know? And like, finishes the match, because he’s such a pro. But I remember for a minute, I was like, oh no. He took complete total blame for it. He was like, Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t move, whatever. I’m just happy he’s okay. He’s like, Sorry, I no sold your move. And I’m like, bro, you’re good. You know, like, I’m just happy you’re alive,”

Change in plans for Sting’s match at AEW Worlds End

Sting is all set for his eight-man tag team match on December 30 at Worlds End pay-per-view. The event is the final tag team match of 2023. The upcoming year is very special for the Icon, as a couple of weeks ago he announced that he will retire from the ring in March 2024. The match at Worlds End was announced as a four-on-four tag team match, with Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Sting and Darby Allin facing off against Big Bill, Ricky Starks, Powerhouse Hobbs and Kyle Fletcher.

This was an official announcement and even featured a graphic display of all 8 superstars but later AEW made a little change following the upcoming match. The previous display featured Kyle Fletcher and in the new display, Konosuke Takeshita replaced Fletcher as the new team member of Big Bill, Ricky Starks and Powerhouse Hobbs.
