Swerve Strickland Didn’t Respond When WWE Called Him For Potential Return



On a recent edition of “The @smoothvega Podcast,” AEW wrestler Swerve Strickland discussed Hit Row’s struggles in WWE following his release.

Strickland revealed that when WWE called him to discuss a potential return, he didn’t answer the phone.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Hit Row struggling without him: “That comes from experience. I had a different experience than those guys had. I’ve known how to build myself from the ground up on the independents. I knew how to hustle, get here, get to there, put on performances and matches, and then go, ‘How do I get that?’ Then monetize that into this and make this into something. Everything, throughout my career, and to this day, I apply; one thing leads to another and to another. That’s kind of how you see those little things in my entrance and my music, my wrestling, my look, the sound, all that was weaving together from going from here to here to hustling. That’s something those guys still need to learn.”

On why it’s tough in WWE: “It’s tough in that organization, WWE, it’s really tough creatively when you don’t have your hands on your creative, and it’s left to the powers that be to maneuver you how they see fit, and that’s not easy for anybody. For me, I was in a place where I knew I needed to be. I needed to be in AEW. When I got the phone call to go back, I didn’t even answer it. It was, ‘Nope.’”
