Swerve Strickland Opens Up On Frustrations In WWE NXT

Published

on

Swerve Strickland is participating in WWE shootouts during the pandemic. When Triple H took over, he wanted Swerve back, but AEW already had him under contract at that point.


Although he is now very happy in a country full of elites, he still has many thoughts about his former employer.

Despite the introduction of Hit Raw, Swerve Strickland has only scratched the surface of his abilities in WWE.

His time in NXT also left a lot to be desired, but he was ready for whatever the company threw at him.

While speaking with Chris Van Vleet, Swerve spoke to Strickland about his time in NXT. He had a lot to say and was good with words.

So that was a process of like, frustration. It came from frustration like a lot of those like moments. Matt Bloom brought me into the office with Canyon at the time and I was getting a promotion.

I was like going up in pay and stuff. But like early on that week. Here’s the frustrating parts of this.

When WWE and NXT is like promoting this and doing this and this and that and that and like you’re tweeting supporting everything like oh, this is coming to the Peacock.

Yeah, we’re doing this, retweet it. Hey, this is the new show coming out yada yada and we have this promoted tweet yada yada mass tweets and stuff like that.

But then like when you like they’ll say nothing, whatever. Like okay, you’re doing your job, but when you say something like unappreciated tweet, no context, just you just tweet unappreciated.”

“They call you hey man, We see you tweet underappreciated, what was that all about? But you miss all the other stuff that I did? You didn’t see anything about me like that two-minute promo video I put out nobody like mentioned, but you’ll see that though. So that was one of the things I brought up in the meeting.

I was like, exactly what I say I feel unappreciated. I feel like I can do more. And I think y’all know that I can do more, like Canyon was right there. The guy who can like hire me fire me at any point?

And I was like, oh, yeah, I have a year left here on my contract. And like, I would love to make something make an impact on that time, you know, because I have options I can do.”

I appreciate everything. Thank you. This has been awesome to experience, appreciate you having me here.

What would I have to do to be one of those guys? Three months after that like a year now? I’m like, What’s stopping you from making me one of your guys? Now it’s like, I’m putting the pressure on him.

Because like now the equity has grown. Now. He knows I’m serious. I know what I have to offer, and stuff like that.

And that may be like, I don’t know that maybe like, it could be taken as a disrespectful, like, you don’t know what you’re talking about.

You’re not seeing me here. But that’s those risks I gotta take, you know, like, giving me the chance to fail.”

Swerve Strickland is currently doing well in AEW. He currently leads his group in the Continental Classic round robin tournament with six points and is tied for first place.

This clearly means that Tony Khan has plans to build even more after winning a brutal Texas Deathmatch against Hangman Page in full gear.
