Brian James was asked about the Sammy Guevara/Andrade El Idolo altercation.
Prior to the third anniversary episode of AEW Dynamite, the initial report from TMZ emerged which read that Sammy Guevara and Andrade El Idolo got into a physical altercation. Andrade was sent home and Guevara headlined the show and got the pin in a tag match.
Their social media back and forth turned physical altercation stemmed from an interview Andrade did with Más Lucha during which Andrade said Guevara was someone who complained about him being too stiff in the ring.
WWE executive Brian ‘Road James’ James was asked about the situation while on the ‘Superstar Crossover’ podcast. He initially laughed when he received a recap of it. He can’t compute how in wrestling, one individual can complain to another about being hit too hard.
It’s wrestling bro [Road Dogg laughed]… I mean look, bless his [Sammy Guevara] heart… Again, that goes back to the generations. How can another man go to another man after a wrestling match and go, ‘Hey, you hit me too hard?’ You know what I mean? If you get hit hard, if I hit you really hard and it’s too hard, I’m gonna apologize to you anyway. Like, ‘Oh, that’s my bad dude. I caught you with that one,’ whatever. But for you to have the — it’s almost an oxymoron. For you to have the intestinal fortitude to walk up to a man and say, ‘Hey man, you hit me too hard.’ I don’t even know how to compute that.
GUNTHER and Sheamus, watch that match and if you don’t wanna be on either end of those receipts, then you’re barking up the wrong tree as far as business opportunities.
This coming Monday on Raw, Road Dogg will be joined by Shawn Michaels, Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque and Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman to celebrate the 25th anniversary of D-Generation X.
He joked about getting upset at the graphics team for using updated images of the group and said it made them look like old men. He added that he soon realized it’s because they are old men.
Look, it’s super cool but also, it reminded me when I saw the graphic on Monday Night Raw, I was like, ‘Wow, why didn’t they show the picture of us from 1998?’ [Road Dogg said about the DX 25th Anniversary graphic] It showed like four old dudes with beards. I thought it was wilderness men, a plug for Duck Dynasty… Then I realized after I got mad at the graphic team because we look like four old men, I realized we are four old men. That’s why we look like that. But, it’s a big deal man. 25, a quarter of a century since D-Generation X formed and happened and you know, you don’t quite realize how quick it dissipated too. D.X. was like a comic. It burned fast but it burned bright and so, that’s why we’re still celebrating it 25 years later and man, what a better venue than the Barclays? And you mentioned it earlier, SeatGeek, I don’t know why there’s still tickets available but if you’re within my voice’s reach, I can only imagine what D-Generation X is going to do in the Barclays Center now that the leader of D-Generation X is also the leader of the company. So it’s gonna be — and I honestly don’t have a clue creatively what we’re gonna do, but I got no sweat. I’ll show up in some blue jeans, he’ll give me a D.X. shirt, we’ll go from there and it’s gonna be the cat’s pajamas man. No doubt.
Monday’s Raw is the season premiere of the program and scheduled for it is a singles match between Austin Theory and Johnny Gargano along with Seth Rollins challenging Bobby Lashley for the United States Championship.
