A former TNT Champion will be back with AEW soon.

Sammy Guevara hasn’t wrestled since competing at WrestleDream on October 1st. On the night the star teamed with Will Ospreay and Konosuke Takeshita in a match against Chris Jericho, Kota Ibushi, and Kenny Omega.

The injury forced the star to miss Dynamite in his hometown of Houston, Texas.

Although Guevara’s team grabbed the win, the Spanish God suffered a concussion along the way. However, following reports that Sammy Guevara was recovering well, Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the star has been cleared to get back in the ring.

“He was cleared – I don’t know when he was cleared exactly, but it was over a week ago and it was basically, he wasn’t gonna be there until she (Tay Melo) gave birth, and then he would come back shortly after.

At that point when she was about to give birth there was no point coming back until after she gave birth. But yeah, he’s cleared.”
