WWE went through a big change, and Triple H has tried hard to collect some of his favorite Superstars that his father-in-law fired over the past couple of years. It seems that he’s done a good job of that with Braun Strowman, Karrion Kross, Scarlett, and Dexter Lumis coming back, but he wasn’t successful with everyone.
Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that Swerve Strickland was contacted by WWE about coming back. This would have presumably been to be a part of the Hit Row faction upon their return. Swerve just told WWE to call his attorney. On the other hand, Keith Lee has never been contacted, something that he addressed just recently.
We can confirm that Swerve Strickland was contacted by WWE, but referred them to his attorney, and had no interest in returning to the company at the time. We were given the indication that he was contacted as a part of the reformed Hit Row pitch. However, we were told that as of now, Keith Lee has not been contacted by WWE, contrary to rumors.
We’ll have to see if WWE can get either member of Swerve in our Glory back, but it doesn’t seem like they’re interested. If anything, Keith Lee apparently never received any kind of contact, contrary to popular belief.
