Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee secured a spot in the AEW Tag Team Rankings with a win over JD Drake & Anthony Henry on the May 18 Dynamite. A very stylish-ly finished victory.
That led into their latest war of words with Team Taz’s Ricky Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs. Starks landed a good jab at Lee (“That’s enough out of you, Rex from Toy Story”), and Swerve responded in kind (“You came out here dressed like a bar of soap with a pearl necklace”). Then Christian Cage & AEW Tag champs Jurassic Express rolled in.

It didn’t look like Cage had cleared that Double or Nothing challenge with Jungle Boy. He definitely didn’t have a chat with his young protege about the FTW rematch he booked between Starks, Swerve & JB for next Wednesday’s Dynamite.
We’re getting closer to the Christian/Jungle Jack feud. Will it involve Jurassic Express dropping the belts to either Starks & Hobbs or Strickland & Lee on May 29 in Las Vegas?
