Swerve Strickland On Potential Match With FTR: They Need To Get To Us, We Hold The AEW Titles

Swerve comments on potentially defending the AEW Tag Team Championship against FTR.

Currently, Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee are the All Elite Wrestling Tag Team Champions. At AEW All Out, Swerve and Lee will defend their tag team gold against Anthony Bowens and Max Caster of The Acclaimed. However, there are many that believe FTR should be getting theTag Team Championship opportunity due to the hot streak they have been on in 2022. As of this writing, Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood currently hold three sets of Tag Team Championship belts.

Appearing on the most recent episode of Grapsody, Swerve stated that he believes a match with FTR will happen eventually, but as the incumbent champions, he and Keith Lee do not have to chase anyone.

We'll get there. We'll get there in time,” said Swerve. “If anything, they need to get to us at this point. People are like, ‘Y'all need to go after them.’ Why? We are the champions, they need to come after the champions.

“I don't care what country they hold their belts in, they still got to come after us,” Swerve continued. “We own the company titles.”

In addition to the Tag Team Championship match, this year's All Out event will be headlined by CM Punk trying to capture the AEW World Championship from Jon Moxley in his hometown of Chicago. Other matches include Chris Jericho vs. Bryan Danielson, a Casino Ladder Match, and more. Fans can check out the full card at this link.
