Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland attempted to solve their issues with mediation on AEW Dynamite but instead, Lee was the victim of Strickland’s new group.
Swerve In Our Glory apparently fell to pieces during their Full Gear match with The Acclaimed as Keith Lee walked out on his partner after Swerve Strickland got physical with him. They reunited briefly at ROH Final Battle but this time it was Strickland that walked out on his partner with Keith Lee still able to overcome Shane Taylor and JD Griffey.
On Dynamite Holiday Bash, Rick Ross was in attendance to try and mediate a meeting between the former AEW Tag Team Champions but meditation was not on Strickland’s mind.
Strickland warned Lee to have eyes in the back of his head before Lee was viciously attacked by Parker Boudreaux who had been a part of Ari Daivari’s Trustbusters faction. Keith Lee was able to get the better of Boudreaux before being assaulted by an unknown assailant. The mystery man and Boudreaux held Lee down with a cinder block on his chest to allow Swerve Strickland to hit his double foot stomp through the block and onto Lee. All three men were wearing clothing branded with the words “Mogul Affiliates.”
Fightful Select reported the identity of the mystery man as former baseball player Granden Goetzman. Goetzman was a second-round pick for the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011 and continued his baseball career up until last year when he was playing in Mexico.
It is noted that Goetzman had been preparing for his AEW debut for some time and had been doing some training at Jay Lethal’s wrestling school.
