Swerve Strickland heads up Mogul Embassy in AEW and Ring of Honor after his Mogul Affiliates merged with the Prince Nana-led Embassy and now there seems to be more detail behind why the merger took place.
Following his break up with Keith Lee, Swerve Strickland brought in Parker Boudreaux and the heavily tattooed Trench to form his Mogul Affiliates group alongside rap impresario Rick Ross. Strickland only teamed with Boudreaux once in AEW, losing to Dustin Rhodes and Keith Lee while Trench has not yet made his in-ring debut.
However, Strickland switched things up when he merged his group with The Embassy which features Prince Nana, Brian Cage, Toa Liona, and Kaun. The group has a rich history that dates back to 2004 with the current incarnation holding the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Championship.
Now Fightful Select has reported that both Trench and Parker Boudreaux are suffering from injuries that have caused them to be absent from AEW television in recent months. It was noted the injuries came before the move to switch up the factions and form the Mogul Embassy.
Swerve Strickland recently lost in his attempt to defeat Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Championship but the two men are set to clash again. On the 14th of June edition of Dynamite, The Mogul Embassy will clash with Orange Cassidy, Keith Lee, Darby Allin, and Sting in a huge eight-man tag team match.
