Prince Nana has become a highlight of AEW television despite never wrestling a match.

Nana performs what has become known as "The Nana" during Swerve Strickland's entrance, dancing and vibing on the way to the ring.

Speaking to Chris Jercho on Talk Is Jericho, Nana discussed the origins of "The Nana."

"All over the place, and I'm dancing," Nana commented when Jericho said that Nana is all over the show. "The dance, how that came about was, I got some good information from the AEW office, I believe it was during the Canada trip or after that because Canada took a lot out of everybody. I love Canada. I was in my room, got some good news, and next thing you know, I put on Instagram, I put on the Swerve song, and I just started dancing that same dance. I did the same dance, I tape it, went maybe two weeks. When I initially walked to the ring, I had a little pep in my step, but maybe two weeks (later), I looked at the video and said, 'I'm going to do this dance.' I did it one night and boom, history was made. Since then, every week people are requesting me to do it. Did it in London in front of 80,000 people. We're getting memes, we're getting people doing the challenge. It's definitely a great thing."

Swerve became the biggest heel in AEW ahead of AEW WrestleDream when he stopped Nana from dancing before his contract signing with Hangman Page.
