Swerve Strickland’s Journey in AEW

Throughout the latter part of 2023, Swerve Strickland emerged as a shining star within All Elite Wrestling (AEW), captivating fans and ascending the ranks to contender status for the AEW World Championship. Yet, according to the reigning AEW World Champion, Samoa Joe, Strickland’s exceptional capabilities have long been evident, albeit largely unrecognized by the wrestling community. “Swerve Strickland has always had this incredible potential, often overlooked by fans,” Joe remarked in an interview with “98.5 The Sports Hub.”

The Swerve-Nana Synergy

Key to Strickland’s burgeoning popularity has been his alliance with Prince Nana, a partnership that has significantly enriched his wrestling persona. Nana, whose managerial talents previously shone in Ring of Honor (ROH), has brought a new dimension to Strickland’s character, resonating strongly with audiences. “Their collaboration has beautifully packaged Swerve’s unique talents, and I’m thrilled to see his star rise,” Joe expressed, acknowledging the duo’s synergy.

Looking Towards the Future

Despite a hiccup in his pursuit of the AEW World Championship at Revolution, where he didn’t clinch the title in a triple-threat match, Strickland’s resolve to reach the pinnacle of AEW remains steadfast. While Wardlow is set to challenge Samoa Joe next on “AEW Dynamite: Big Business,” Strickland’s focus is unwavering, suggesting his journey to the top is far from over. Samoa Joe’s acknowledgment of Strickland’s latent talent and his visible growth within AEW underscores a bright future ahead for this remarkable wrestler.
