• “I don’t know what the hell you’re thinking” – Tony Khan On WWE Releasing 2 Current AEW Wrestlers
Last year, WWE released Keith Lee and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott from the company.
This year, both of them joined All Elite Wrestling.
During an interview with Barstool Rasslin’, AEW President Tony Khan had the following to say about WWE releasing both of these wrestlers:
“Also, speaking of established stars coming in, Swerve Strickland and right before that Keith Lee.
I can’t believe these guys got fired by any wrestling company in the world. I don’t know what the hell you’re thinking if you run a wrestling company and you don’t have a spot for Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee.
I get that there are only so many positions in a company but I think any company that has those guys and, you know, it wasn’t like they’re unreasonable guys. They’re great! I love both guys.
They’ve been a huge part of what we’re doing here now, too.”
