Swerve Strickland, formerly known as Isaiah Swerve Scott, may be the most sought after free agent in wrestling today.
It was previously reported that many companies including All Elite Wrestling are interested in pursuing Swerve to acquire his services.
Speaking with WrestleTalk, “Sw3rve The Realest” reacted to so many companies being interested in bringing him in.
“It’s a good problem to have. I’m weighing my options right now. I made such a good income with WWE at the time, so I’m looking for what can ultimately match that, but if it doesn’t match it, it needs to offer other opportunities for the other outside ventures that I have in this world, like with my music, with my podcast thing, venturing out, going over to LA all the time and overseas, as a father I’ve still got to venture over to see my children, so I wanna weigh my options with the best place that can really accommodate those things.
“And of course, pro-wrestling – I’ve done it my entire adult life, I’ve sacrificed 13 years to it, so I’m not just trying to leave that, but there’s other things that help build my wrestling career as well and I want a place that also wants to respect that and helps boost those kinds of things too. And help bring those other things into the wrestling world as well.”
