Guevara is one of the true homegrown stars of AEW. However, many fans have criticized him for being a little reckless in the ring. Guevara's rivalry with Matt Hardy in 2020 saw the two stars engage in some brutal encounters that were quite controversial.
At AEW: All Out 2020, Hardy and Guevara wrestled in a Broken Rules match. A failed spot in the bout led to Hardy's head landing directly on the solid concrete floor.
The injury was labeled "life-threatening," although Hardy made a quick recovery. Speaking to WrestlingInc, Guevara explained that it was as if he and Hardy were "cursed" for a period of time.
“The Matt stuff, a bunch of unfortunate stuff happened there,” Guevara admitted. “It was almost like we were cursed for a minute. We had a great one-on-one match before Double or Nothing last year. That’s what people forget. We had a great one-on-one. Nothing happened between us but then all of a sudden, stuff started happening."
Guevara spoke about how wrestling isn't the easiest thing to do and that there's an inherent danger in it. The AEW star also stated that there's a reason why he's in the ring, putting his body at risk while his critics aren't.
"This isn’t the easiest of things to do, and I know everybody wants to be safe and stuff, but this stuff is dangerous to do," Guevara added. "As much as everyone wants to be like, ‘He’s dangerous.’ There’s a reason I’m in the ring. These people are not. What we do is very dangerous, and there’s a reason I’m doing this dangerous thing and they’re watching this dangerous thing.”
