AEW Star Explains The Similarities Between Triple H & Tony Khan
Several stars have competed in both NXT and AEW and are able to say what it’s like to work with Tony Khan and Triple H and now Swerve Strickland has discussed what both those men have in common – belief in him.
Speaking on The Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Swerve Strickland explained that Triple H and now Tony Khan have allowed him to showcase his abilities given his confidence in them:
“I’m confident, I know I can do it, and being able to stand up to Triple H and say, ‘I know I can do this, I need you to believe in me.’ You can’t help but be confident in yourself, and I think he and I knew he felt that, and therefore he put it out there for me. He just was like, ‘alright go, because you believe in it, I believe in it.'”
“Now, Tony Khan is the same way with all of 2022, like even me taking pliers to Billy Gunn’s hands. I believe in this, and then he believed in me. He believed this would work, even bringing Kevin Gates and Rick Ross, all these things they do work. Because I believed in it and I have to be confident with it.”
Swerve Strickland recently headlined AEW Rampage against Dustin Rhodes on a show that will go down in history for all the wrong reasons.
