WrestleZone.com recently interviewed AEW wrestler Sammy Guevara, who discussed his first match with Cody Rhodes in 2016. Below are some highlights.

Sammy Guevara on Cody Rhodes thinking he was a baby face for their first match: “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.”

On wanting a rubber match against Dustin Rhodes: “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!”
