Swerve Strickland Addresses ‘Unfinished Business’ With AEW Star

Swerve Strickland Addresses ‘Unfinished Business’ With AEW Star AEW

Current AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland has addressed his “unfinished business” with AEW star Keith Lee.

In 2022, both Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee signed with All Elite Wrestling following their separate departures from WWE.

The two men found success in AEW as a duo when they formed “Swerve In Our Glory.” Strickland and Lee went on to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships.

A year after their split as a tag team, Swerve and Lee were set to meet one-on-one at AEW Worlds End in December 2023. Unfortunately, Keith Lee was not medically cleared to compete and Strickland went on to face Dustin Rhodes.

During a virtual signing with Highspots, Swerve Strickland was asked about his unfinished business with Keith Lee. He answered:

“Every time we try to start the business, it doesn’t go anywhere. I think he’s dealing with health issues right now, so that’s up in the air,” 

The question was in reference to who Swerve will face for the AEW World Title at Double Or Nothing 2024. His opponent for the pay-per-view will be announced on tonight’s May 1 episode of AEW Dynamite.
