Swerve Strickland Says Romantic Storylines Could Attract Women To Wrestling


AEW’s Swerve Strickland has shared his idea for how wrestling could attract more women to watch the action.

Strickland signed with AEW in March 2022 and is a one-time former AEW World Tag Team Champion (with Keith Lee.)


During a recent appearance on the “Say Less” podcast, Strickland suggested that wrestling could benefit from embracing more romantic storylines.

The former WWE Superstar added that this could help bring more women into wrestling’s viewership. He explained,

“Women get really invested in romance, not just a strong female character who can beat up anybody. Women get attracted and attached to, ‘Oh, she was with him, he’s with her, but he has a love triangle with her.'”

This isn’t the first time Strickland has put forward this idea, as he shared the same idea during an episode of the “Swerve City” podcast last month.

Strickland said at the time that having romantic storylines would be “really tough to pull off” but believes it could work with the right talent involved.
