According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com, AEW will be bringing in former WWE star Shane ‘Swerve’ Strickland. There has been speculation about Swerve joining AEW in recent weeks and his signing is said to be a “big acquisition” for the company. The belief is that the deal will take effect in the first week of March.
In addition to Swerve, Fightful is reporting that Ring of Honor World Champion Jonathan Gresham will be backstage at tonight’s AEW Dynamite event in Bridgeport, CT. At this time, it’s unclear if the company has any plans to use Gresham on the show. Gresham has been a free agent in recent months due to ROH’s hiatus.
