Swerve Strickland Mentions WWE’s Kofi Kingston During Promo On AEW Collision

Swerve Strickland, as seen on this week’s edition of AEW Collision, cut a promo to hype his upcoming match against “Hangman” Adam Page on Dynamite this Wednesday. Swerve said the following during his promo:

“Black History [Month], the celebration of the achievement of black people in all industries. All avenues, all walks of life, right? Yeah, I’m noble enough to really show appreciation and recognize all the people who paved the way for me to have the opportunity to stand [in this ring] right here, right now and talk to you [Tony Schiavone.]”

“People you may know, such as a Ron Simmons. How about I shout out my friends who made Black history, you know, like a Kofi Kingston? What up Kof! And how about we keep it in house a little bit? We talk about some of the people that’s been one of the best wrestlers on the planet? Holding down a brand, for well over a year now, whoopin’ ass! I’m talking about the Ring of Honor Women’s [World] Champion Athena. What up sis?”
