AEW is expected to announce more signings at their February 7th rally in Las Vegas. While it is not clear who those names will be, a report from the Wrestling Observer is stating both Sammy Guevara and Kylie Rae are expected to sign with the new promotion.
Guevara had been wrestling with MLW but he is reported to have canceled dates and was becoming difficult to book.
“(MLW) were under the impression (Guevara) is going to AEW and I am under the impression that he is very likely going to AEW as well,” Dave Meltzer said. “Another name to mention for AEW is, whether it is a done deal or close, is Kylie Rae.”
Sammy Guevara & Kylie Rae
Sammy Guevara currently works for AAA in Mexico where he is the World Cruiserweight champion. The 25-year-old recently returned home from a tour with DDT in Japan which went from November 30th to January 14th. The last time he wrestled for MLW was at their Chicago tapings in November. He was defeated by Rush, who also recently left the promotion.
Kylie Rae is a 26-year-old pro who has gotten noticed for her performances with RISE and Chicago’s AAW promotion. She has also toured Japan with Stardom this July.
