Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti’s relationship on screen in AEW has been nothing short of controversial. While Sammy Guevara was beloved in the Inner Circle and Tay Conti was one of the most exciting young babyfaces in the women’s division.
However, since their relationship became public and a feature of their TV persona’s Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti have become two of the most hated characters in all of wrestling.
While they originally were intended to be the babyfaces in their feud with the Men of the Year and Dan Lambert, fans quickly turned on the young couple Sammy Guevara’s natural unlikability soured fans on him and even turned them against Tay Conti, one of the top faces in the AEW Women’s Division.
Thankfully, Tony Khan eventually leaned into the skid and turned the duo into heels, where Guevara has excelled but Conti has so far struggled. She is a natural babyface and I think it’s fair to say that her tagging with her real-life boyfriend has been detrimental to her career in AEW so far.
However, Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti have a much different opinion of their current run in AEW than the fans do…
