Shortly after winning the TNT Championship on AEW Dynamite, Sammy Guevara revealed that former NXT star Bobby Fish would be his first challenger.
Bobby Fish’s first match since parting ways with WWE back in August will take place on the October 6 edition of AEW Dynamite.
In case you missed it, Sammy Guevara defeated Miro for the TNT Championship in the main event of this week’s AEW Dynamite. The show went off the air as Guevara was celebrating with his friends in the ring as confetti rained down from the sky, but Guevara made an announcement later in the night while being interviewed by Tony Schiavone backstage in a segment that aired dung the commercial break of the premiere episode of Cody and Brandi Rhodes’ reality show Rhodes To The Top.
Guevara revealed that former WWE NXT Superstar Bobby Fish had already challenged Guevara for his newly won title and that he had accepted Fish’s challenge, confirming that Fish would be making his AEW debut next week in the process.
After Guevara had broken the news of Fish’s imminent AEW debut, Dan Lambert and Men Of The Year (Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky) confronted Guevara and demanded title shots of their own. The altercation almost got physical but the parties were pulled apart as the segment ended.
As you might recall, Bobby Fish was released by WWE along with several of his now-former NXT colleagues on August 7. Fish signed with WWE in 2017 and became a founding member of The Undisputed Era alongside Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly. Fish would go on to hold the NXT Tag Team Championship on two separate occasions. The 44-year-old began wrestling in 2002 and was trained by legendary WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race.
