Swerve Strickland: We Can Start Team Building With New Wrestlers Coming In

Swerve Strickland wants to build the company up.

All Elite Wrestling is known for consistently signing and bringing new talent into the company. As a result, there are some fan favorites within the promotion that don't get as much time in the spotlight as many people believe that they should.

At the AEW Dynasty media scrum, Strickland was asked about new stars coming into AEW and how he maintains his spot in the company.

"Huge. It’s easy to find ways to feel like that’s a threat to you guys, to us, to the locker room. It’s an easy way, but it’s just like, ‘Alright, this is happening. We have to do something more. We have to push, create, innovate.’ We have to start really grinding our gears because this is a constantly moving. It’s a never ending Rubix cube, this industry is, and it will eat you alive if you can’t figure out one side of it. It will eat you alive trying to figure it out. These people coming in, these are people that maybe you want to build a team with. Maybe these are people that you don’t want to fight against. Maybe we can start building with them instead of looking at them as trying to beat them out. I look at things differently. There are others ways around it rather than the obvious of ‘this guy is coming to take my spot. This woman is coming to take her spot.’ Maybe there is another way and maybe AEW is offering that other way to get things done. Worth looking into."

Elsewhere in the scrum, Strickland talked about how Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship win and how it inspired him. Learn more here.
