“The Spanish God” Sammy Guevara has been suspended by All Elite Wrestling. The news comes after recordings of Guevarra saying he wanted to “rape” current WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Sasha Banks were released this morning.
The reports are from a podcast Guevara participated on in 2016.

As read in the statement above, Guevara will be suspended without pay “until further notice”. While Guevara has agreed to do sensitivity training, his job with All Elite Wrestling isn’t fully secure; and only time will tell what the promotion decides to do.
Guevara, a former AAA Cruiserweight Champion, has been a significant fixture of AEW’s television program Dynamite, and his absence will certainly be felt. Considered one of the fastest growing stars in the company, Guevara is a member of Chris Jericho‘s Inner Circle faction, and is one of Jericho’s closet allies on TV. Guevara was also beginning a program with former WWE star, Matt Hardy. Arguably his biggest singles feud to date.
Sasha Banks released a statement today on Twitter, where the former multi-time Women’s Champion spoke to Guevara today:

It should be noted that Guevara also made a public apology to Banks on Twitter:
