Swerve Strickland's Perspective on Why WWE Wisely Waited Two Years Before Hitting the Push Button

AEW’s Swerve Strickland is confidently asserting that he was unprepared for a significant challenge just a few years ago and is now on the verge of achieving international champion status.

In a recent appearance on “Notsam Wrestling,” the former WWE star candidly shared his perspective on why WWE didn’t have the right timing to push his career forward.

Contrary to opinions suggesting that WWE should have propelled him to the forefront a year or two earlier, Strickland countered, stating, “No, they shouldn’t have. I’ll admit that. No, it wasn’t my time.” He attributed his current readiness to handle challenges to personal growth, emphasizing Shawn’s wisdom about being in the right position at the right time.

According to Strickland, if WWE had accelerated his career prematurely, he would not have evolved into the unique wrestler he is today. He contends that delaying his ascent has led to a more fearsome and intriguing persona.

Expressing his ambition to become the AEW World Champion, Strickland dismissed any notion of race-baiting, asserting that his desire stems from pride and cultural identity. In a spirited debate, he defended his perspective, asking why a heel couldn’t take pride in their culture and actions, noting that those who engage in questionable behavior often exhibit the most pride due to the challenges they face.

In a notable Texas Deathmatch against “Hangman” Adam Page, Strickland showcased his skills and caught the attention of AEW superstar Matt Hardy. Hardy, a prominent figure in the wrestling world, recently endorsed Strickland’s potential to become an AEW World Champion in the near future.
