Konnan comments on AEW stars Tay Melo and Sammy Guevara missing AAA Noche De Campeones.

Guevara and Melo were stripped of the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship at the event on December 28. They had been scheduled to defend the titles, but they were both absent from the show. Melo wrestled on Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite instead; she and Anna Jay AS defeated Ruby Soho and Willow Nightingale.

Speaking on his Keepin’ It 100 podcast, Konnan explained why Melo and Guevara were absent from the show. He noted that he wasn’t sure why the former TNT Champion got pulled from the event, but AEW president Tony Khan took Melo off the card because someone else got COVID-19.

“I will just say that Tony pulled Tay because some girl, I don’t know who, had COVID,” Konnan said. “I’m not sure why Sammy was pulled because he didn’t even appear on the f———- show.”

Konnan then discussed the way Melo and Guevara missed multiple AAA shows and noted that they had some difficulties with their travel. He went on to state that he didn’t know why Khan didn’t let Guevara attend the AAA show because she didn’t do anything at AEW’s TV taping that week.

“The first time, they missed their flight,” Konnan said. “The second time, it was, this girl’s Brazilian, Tay Melo, and I know this to be a fact because one time, when I was handling Rey’s business when he was out of WWE, they wanted him to go to Brazil, and to get a visa is not easy. So she needed to get a visa

“Tay sent me her visa papers, and she was like, ‘I tried to get my visa, I couldn’t get it on time. But we will be at the next show for sure.’ They sent me a video, everything was cool, and then next thing I know, Tony pulled her because somebody had COVID. What I don’t understand is why didn’t he just send Sammy because Sammy didn’t do s—- on the show.”

When asked about his relationships with Melo and Guevara, Konnan stated that he gets along with both of them.
