AEW Star Worried He ‘Killed’ Sting During Match

In a recent AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event, Sting, along with Darby Allin and Tetsuya Naito, secured a victory in a thrilling trios match against formidable opponents, including Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, and Minoru Suzuki. It was during this match that Sammy Guevara attempted a daring 630 Splash off the top rope to Sting, aiming to crash through a table at ringside.



In an interview on “Insight with Chris Van Vliet,” Guevara recounted the intense moment, expressing his initial confusion and fear, believing he had unintentionally caused harm to the wrestling legend. Guevara revealed that the plan was for Sting to move out of the way, but due to the rapid speed or timing of the 630 Splash, the execution did not go as intended.

Guevara vividly described the aftermath, recalling the sensation of feeling Sting’s body on his back after the failed move. Fearing he had seriously injured Sting, Guevara looked at him as they both lay amidst the wreckage. To everyone’s relief, Sting remarkably popped up just a minute later, displaying the professionalism that has defined his storied career. Sting proceeded to finish the match, showcasing resilience and composure in the face of an unexpected turn of events.

Despite the momentary scare, Guevara emphasized Sting’s graciousness in taking complete blame for the incident, apologizing for not executing the planned evasion. Guevara expressed his immense relief that Sting was unharmed, and he praised Sting’s status as a pro who could handle such situations with remarkable poise.

In reflecting on the incident, Guevara humorously mentioned Sting’s apology for “no-selling” the move, but the prevailing sentiment was one of gratitude that Sting emerged from the high-flying encounter unscathed. Sting’s ability to navigate such situations underscores not only his physical prowess but also his commitment to delivering compelling performances for wrestling enthusiasts worldwide.

“So, story about that. He was supposed to move. But for whatever reason, either the 630 is too fast or timing, whatever, I landed off. And I remember going through the table, and I feel his body on my back.” “And I’m thinking, Oh, I just killed Sting. Oh, no, and like I land, kind of roll off that look at him. And then he pops up like a minute later, you know? And like, finishes the match, because he’s such a pro.” “But I remember for a minute, I was like, oh no. He took complete total blame for it. He was like, Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t move, whatever. I’m just happy he’s okay.” “He’s like, Sorry, I no sold your move. And I’m like, bro, you’re good. You know, like, I’m just happy you’re alive.”
