Sasha Banks Releases Statement Regarding Sammy Guevara

Sasha Banks - Wrestling Examiner

A rape comment Sammy Guevara made about Sasha Banks in 2016 resurfaced on social media, leading to Guevara being suspended without pay until further notice by AEW.

Guevara tweeted a public apology as well as one directed at Banks. He also reached out to Banks to personally apologize, and Banks would later post the following statement on Twitter regarding their discussion:

“Earlier I spoke with Sammy, he apologized and we had an open discussion. Words like the comments he made, jokingly or not, have absolutely no place in our society! I don’t condone or tolerate this kind of behavior. What one thinks is just a side comment can have a massive impact on someone else’s life, and can send the wrong message. We have to hold ourselves accountable for our actions and the words we say, and I hope this situation shows him that. I hope from this point on, in order for growth and change within our community to take place, we all can continue to have these conversations. No person, man, woman or child, should ever be subjected to a feeling of fear, or any unsafe environment. We all have to do better not just for ourselves, but for generations to come.”
