ANOTHER of AEW 's "4 Pillars", and another TNT Champion to our lineup, as we welcome Sammy Guevara to Shreveport for Geek'd Con 2022!

Guevara is a Texas native who trained with Hall of Famer Booker T at his Texas-based wrestling school. He worked across multiple independent wrestling promotions before joining AEW.

As an AEW original, Guevara had a match at the promotion's first major show, Double of Nothing in 2019. He also had a prominent role during AEW's first episode of Dynamite, where Sammy took on Cody Rhodes.

After joining forces with legend Chris Jericho in his Inner Circle stable, Sammy continued to grow his fanbase. To the point where he is now recognized as one of AEW's "4 Pillars", representing one of the four most important young talents the company is being built on.

Sammy grabbed the TNT Championship in September of 2021. He dropped the belt to Cody Rhodes in December, but has recently picked up the Interim TNT Championship as well.
