Sammy Guevara Thinks He Is Starting To Win AEW Fans Over Again
Sammy Guevara on AEW fan reaction to him
After establishing himself as a popular babyface in 2021, fan sentiment turned against Sammy Guevara in 2022 after he was paired on-screen with then-girlfriend and now-wife Tay Melo, with the couple receiving loud boos from fans throughout Guevara's programme over the TNT Championship with Scorpio Sky.
Guevara continues to receive boos from the audience in his role as a heel but the Jericho Appreciation Society member thinks he is "getting the people back."
Addressing backstage issues in 2022 while speaking to The Sportster, Guevara stated:
"I have no problems with anybody there, I say 'what's up' to everybody. But the internet likes to spin a story, I understand negativity brings in those clicks. I think I am getting the people back. I think 2022 they really hated me, and then 2023 I think they're kind of waking up to like, 'Okay maybe we were a little stupid, maybe he actually is the GOAT.'"
Guevara most recently appeared on AEW TV at the Revolution pay-per-view on Sunday, March 5 when he tried to help Chris Jericho defeat Ricky Starks. Guevara ultimately failed, though, as Starks scored his second win over Jericho with the Rochambeau.
