According to Fightful Select, Ricky Starks and Swerve Strickland had a backstage incident following a match in 2022. The two were in the ring at Double Or Nothing where Strickland interrupted Starks using his finishing move. This resulted in a scuffle backstage, though the two of them were able to quickly patch things up and work together soon. They have also reportedly talked about the situation on an upcoming edition of Strickland’s podcast.
There is some talent there. Check out the two in action:
Opinion: The good thing is that this seems to be a one off issue that isn’t causing any kind of serious long term issue. Occasionally things like this happen backstage in a wrestling company and what matters is cooling things off as fast as possible. That is what seems to have happened now and it seems to have calmed down quite a bit here, which is better for everyone involved.
What do you think of the situation? Which of the two has a brighter future in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
