AEW superstar Sammy Guevara recently spoke with WrestleZone to discuss the first time he ever wrestled Cody Rhodes and how he is still seeking a rubber match against Cody’s older brother Dustin Rhodes. Highlights from the interview can be found below.
On the first time he wrestled Cody Rhodes:
I have one that’s on my own YouTube channel that you guys can go watch for free. It’s myself versus Cody Rhodes for the first time in 2016. We wrestled each other in Corpus Christi. A funny story—Cody had heard about me, but at the time he didn’t know much about me. I had pandas on my gear, I wore pink—I probably looked like a super babyface. He thought I was a babyface, and at the beginning of the match he goes to shake my hand. I give him the middle finger, the bird, and his face when he realizes, ‘Ahhh, he’s a bad guy!’ It’s priceless, and the camera zooms in perfectly on his face right at that moment.
Says he wants to face Dustin Rhodes in a rubber match:
Dustin beat me in our last encounter but I need the trifecta, I need ‘round 3.’ I beat him in our first, he beat me in the second, so I’ll go ahead and spoil it—when we wrestle again, I’m going to beat Dustin’s ass. That’s what is going to happen. My back is ready to carry another old man to a great match!
