Tony Khan Talks William Regal & Swerve Strickland Signing With AEW

Tony Khan wanted to present several types of surprises at AEW Revolution and the AEW president did so with a legacy star and a star of the future.

Both William Regal and Swerve Strickland made their debuts in All Elite Wrestling at the March 6 PPV and the Orlando crowd was abuzz at the two talents showing up. During a post-media scrum following Revolution, Khan was asked about Regal invaluable presence under the AEW banner.

“When he was released, I was first of all very surprised but also eager to bring him here,” Tony said. I think he can contribute on screen in a major way to both Bryan Danielson and also he has a history with Jon Moxley. I think some of the last matches we saw Lord Regal wrestle were against Jon Moxley and they had a great rivalry also.” Khan also noted of Regal’s expected impact behind the scene during shows, but later said how introducing Swerve during the same event was all part of his strategy.

“In addition to Lord Regal coming after the Danielson Moxley match I wanted to debut a star who I think would be great for us for the future and that’s Swerve. [He] was again, somebody else who I was very surprised would be released because he had done very well I think in the matches and the segments I’ve seen and he was somebody I really liked and so I was looking to snap him up. I thought Revolution, with such a night of great matches, would be a great stage for him to come out and I think it was a very high-profile debut. Again, he’s a great wrestler and we now have that [potential for] many more dream matches in AEW.”
