Swerve Strickland Says He Signed With AEW To Prove WWE Wrong


On November 18, 2021, Swerve Strickland was released from his WWE contract following which he debuted for AEW at the 2022 Revolution pay-per-view event.

Speaking with 95.7 The Game, Strickland stated that his WWE release lit a fire under him. He said,


“As many things as WWE does right, there’s a lot of things that WWE does wrong, and I was one of those. I wanted to make sure I proved that I was one of the worst decisions you could make. Because I also sat in that for a little bit of being disappointed, like I didn’t want to tell my family for a couple days at first. Then I was like, ‘How about I turn this energy and emotion into something positive? How do I use this as fuel to power this locomotive?’ I just went balls to the wall.”
