Lee South Samoa Joe vs Swerve Strickland St. Louis, MO AEW Dynasty April 22, 2024

All Elite Wrestling commentator Tony Schiavone recently spoke on his podcast, “What Happened When,” about a number of professional wrestling topics including how he is excited for Swerve Strickland vs. Will Ospreay for the AEW World Title at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2024.

Schiavone said, “Yeah I am, because Swerve has been such a great champion, and Will Ospreay is one of the most incredible performers [I’ve ever seen]… I think I’ve said this before, but I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone capture the excitement and imagination of the crowd like Will Ospreay has in such a short period of time.”

On not realizing how great Will Ospreay is:

“I knew he was great. I didn’t know how great he was. And that’s a tribute…a testament, whatever, to not only how well he can work, but his interviews have been good too. They’ve been really authentic…It’s going to be quite a challenge for Swerve.”
