Swerve Strickland A Generational Talent Says AEW Veteran

Swerve Strickland kicks Nick Wayne

Fans are in for a treat when Swerve Strickland takes on Roderick Strong.

Swerve Strickland’s career hit a new high at AEW Dynasty where he defeated Samoa Joe to claim the World Championship. The star had been seen as “the next man up” for several months, if not longer, but his impressive potential in the eyes of many has now been fully realised.

On the June 5th episode of Dynamite, Strickland will make the next defence of his beloved title against Roderick Strong. The Undisputed Kingdom star got the match after beating Lio Rush and then berating Tony Khan on Collision.

Ahead of the match, Dustin Rhodes talked up both men on social media, describing Strickland as a “generational talent.”

From 1st hand experience, @swerveconfident is in a different category. A generational talent who is as tough as they come. #HouseCall ain’t no joke… will rattle your brains like scrambled eggs @roderickstrong is also a man of strict work ethic, who is himself a force. With his ability to tie you up in a knot….I’d say we are getting a PPV caliber matchup Wednesday on #AEWDynamite #RoddyVsSwerve #WorkHorseChampion

The Challenges Keep Coming For Swerve Strickland

Should he get past Strong, Swerve Strickland will move on to face Will Ospreay at Forbidden Door.

On the May 29th edition of Dynamite, Ospreay won a Casino Gauntlet match to book his shot at the gold. Should the British star get the better of Strickland he’ll hold both the World and International Titles heading into All In.
