Swerve Strickland For Being Ignored During His Freshman Year In WWE NXT, What Stephanie McMahon Said To Him Backstage


During an interview on Renee Paquette’s “The Sessions” podcast, AEW Tag Team Champion Swerve Strickland spoke about going unnoticed in NXT the first year he was there:

“It’s interesting to see people have that thought about me, like I was in the elevator in NXT and said, ‘Oh man, you’re getting a lot of success.’ But at the time, NXT wasn’t talked about at all because that first year I felt like I was a good hand to have, kind of because I was redoing the Leo Rushes. I was transferring Cameron Grimes. Santos Escobars. I transferred the Bronson Reeds, the Austin Theories. I kept taking over all these people. Even when MSK first came in, their debut was against me and I transferred them. I transferred Leon Ruff.”
