A CMLL veteran has addressed the problems that plagued their latest AEW match.

On the June 22nd episode of Collision, Ultimo Guerrero took on Kazuchika Okada in the latest crossover between AEW and CMLL. However, it was reported after the taping on June 20th that things didn’t work out as planned.

It was noted that AEW advertised Guerrero as wrestling in a mask, despite him not performing in a face covering in several years. This led to a scramble to get him one which came off multiple times during the match.

Reports described the action as “a mess” and suggested those involved were lucky the bout didn’t air live.

In a post on Facebook, Guerrero confirmed he thought he would be wrestling without a mask so he didn’t bring one to the venue. He went on to praise a member of staff for making a mask for the match on short notice.

A story to tell I came to the dressing room of the recording location for AEW at the collision function unforeseen for me from one day to the next where I had to fight with mask and it turns out I have no masks arriving at the location they realized there is no mask immediately a company worker was ordered to make an unusual mask he made it as he could reflecting the loyalty he has to his work within an hour or so checking and worrying why I looked good.

Everyone criticizing why he pulls out that mask and I’m thinking about the sacrifice of this person my respect because it’s the work of a great working man of AEW represents my sacrifice and that’s why I put it on and went up with it. sometimes many people do something for us and we do not take them into account with pride I will keep this mask.

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that TNA star Mike Bailey was also at the taping. However, he was simply visiting friends rather than working on a move from TNA.
