The 26-year-old is becoming quite popular nowadays and is even drawing comparisons to deceased WWE legend Eddie Guerrero.
Booker doesn't disagree with the wrestler being likened to the former WWE Champion and was full of praise for him whilst speaking on his Hall of Fame podcast recently.
“When you look at Sammy, I mean, he’s a good looking kid. He really is. And he can really perform at such a young age," he remarked.
"That’s what I look at most about this young kid, was his debut match going out there in front of the world, and doing such an awesome job. And letting the world see, ‘Hey, man. This kid is pretty good. We got our eyes on him.’ So no, I don’t think it’s too early to be saying something like that about Sammy.
"And I’m not just putting him over or anything like that, because he stopped through Reality of Wrestling or anything like that. But I watched him when he made his walk [for his debut Dynamite match] and man. It said ‘star’ all over his face, and I was like ‘Man, this kid has got something.'”
Booker is now a co-host on WWE studio show WWE Backstage, with the promotion moving along with the times as it relates to a media presence. But he's been around long enough to have seen some of the biggest names to have graced a WWE ring and thinks the comparisons are fair.
“Yeah, as well as how good as when he was that young," he said regarding the claims of a similarity. "Because that tells a story, as far as how good one is gonna be when you see him. When they first get in the ring, you know. Just like Luke Hawx’s son PJ. You look at that kid, you go ‘Yeah, he’s got something.’ So, yeah. Sammy and the comparison, I think it’s actually a pretty good comparison.”
Kid's Got A Future
Guevara is now one of the best young wrestling talents around right now, at least where popular promotions are concerned, and the sky really is the limit.
He's already shown that he's got a bit of an edge about him, while also displaying some remarkable talent. And there's no doubting he'll have a bright future as long as he sticks to the path he's currently on.
