International Star Addresses Issue With Recent AEW Match

International Star Addresses Issue With Recent AEW Match AEW

Following the June 22 edition of AEW Collision, CMLL star Ultimo Guerrero has addressed the issue with his match with Kazuchika Okada.

On the June 22 episode of AEW Collision, Kazuchika Okada defeated Ultimo Guerrero in an AEW Continental Championship Eliminator Match.

The ending of the bout saw Guerrero’s mask pulled off before Okada hit the Rainmaker for the victory.

Guerrero wearing the mask during the match was an odd decision since he lost the mask to Atlantis nearly 10 years ago on CMLL’s Aniversario card in September 2014.

Following the episode, Ultimo Guerrero took to his Facebook account to address the issue and note that he arrived to the AEW Collision TV taping without his mask because he assumed he would be wrestling unmasked. He said (translated in English):

“A story to tell I came to the dressing room of the recording location for AEW at the collision function unforeseen for me from one day to the next where I had to fight with mask and it turns out I have no masks arriving at the location.”

“They realized there is no mask immediately a company worker was ordered to make an unusual mask he made it as he could reflecting the loyalty he has to his work within an hour or so checking and worrying why I looked good.”

“Everyone criticizing why he pulls out that mask and I’m thinking about the sacrifice of this person my respect because it’s the work of a great working man of AEW represents my sacrifice and that’s why I put it on and went up with it.”

“Sometimes many people do something for us and we do not take them into account with pride I will keep this mask.”

CMLL talent will take part at the upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view, including Hechicero who will face MJF in a singles action.

Also, CMLL star and NJPW STRONG Women’s Champion Stephanie Vaquer will face TBS Champion Mercedes Mone in a Title For Title Match. For the full lineup for Forbidden Door, click here.
