During his appearance on “Talk Is Jericho”, Sammy Guevara talked about sneaking backstage at Wrestlemania 25, teaching himself high-flying moves and more. Here are the highlights:
On Sneaking Backstage At Wrestlemania 25:
Oh, you know what’s funny. I actually snuck backstage at WrestleMania 25. Yeah, you know we waited until the show was over. We were by the ring, and Triple H had his little sledgehammer by the ring. And we see they’re putting stuff up and we’re like ‘Oh, let’s go over there.’ And then I just thought in my mind, like, ‘All right, let me just pretend that I belong.’ And I acted like I was helping put up the ring skirt or whatever and two big security guys just didn’t say anything. I walked past and my friends were like, ‘Where are you going?’ I’m like, ‘Shut up, come on!’ And then I ended up meeting Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Ric Flair. Met a lot of guys. Eventually ended up getting kicked out.
On Teaching Himself To Do High Flying Moves:
You know, I actually taught myself how to do everything. Well, flips. I say everything, but … I saw Shawn Michaels do a moonsault on TV and before I had a trampoline or anything. And I was like, ‘I can do that!’ And I was on my mattress just side-flipping, bouncing into the walls. I remember, man. This is bringing back memories right now of just flying into the walls hurting my feet, my mom yelling, ‘What is that??’ I’m like, ‘Nothing…’ But yeah, I just was like, ‘I can do that.’
On The Mindset For Trying High Risk Moves:
The big thing with me is just try it, hit the f** it button. That’s a lot of things with me. You just hit that button and the worst that’s gonna happen is, you’re gonna get hurt. But you know, we have hospitals. They’ll fix you up. So that was my thought process trying a 630, trying a corkscrew backflip. All of these crazy things, I just hit that button.
