AEW Reportedly Sends Andrade Home after Sammy Guevara Altercation

For those of you active on professional wrestling social media, you know that AEW stars Sammy Guevara and Andrade have been exchanging some brutal back-n-forths on Twitter over the past week regarding a previous incident between the two that was exacerbated by Andrade's interview with Mas Lucha where he alleged that Guevara was complaining about Andrade hitting him too hard during a match. Well, it's quite possible that came to a head tonight with the two reportedly getting into a backstage altercation and TMZ reporting that Andrade was sent home from tonight's AEW Dynamite on TBS, emanating from the Entertainment & Sports Arena in Washington D.C. Sources speaking with TMX say it was not part of a storyline, and that words were exchanged before things turned physical. Sources say Guevara pushed Andrade, and then punches were exchanged (although it wasn't clear if any actual contact was made between the two at that point).
