Swerve Strickland Defeats Hangman Page In Front Of A Very Pro-Swerve Crowd At AEW WrestleDream

Hit the Nana and celebrate Swerve's victory over Hangman Page at AEW WrestleDream.

Swerve Strickland was the de facto babyface in front of his hometown crowd in Seattle, Washington. Hangman, although he's not used to it, settled into a heel role very nicely.

Much to the dismay of the audience, Hanger nailed Strickland with the Buckshot Lariat, but due to the damage Strickland inflicted on the arm of Adam Page, he was not able to cover immediately. When he did finally get into the pinfall, Prince Nana put Swerve's foot on the bottom rope. The referee caught him doing this which led to him being ejected from ringside. Before he left, he did toss his crown to Swerve.

Swerve knocked Hangman out with the crown and eventually put him away with the JML Driver, earning a massive victory over a former AEW World Champion.

After the match, Swerve celebrated with the rest of the Mogul Embassy as Nana and the entire arena began to dance the night away.
