Swerve Strickland destroyed Billy Gunn’s fingers with a pair of pliers and that didn’t sit well with Keith Lee. Tonight, the big man finally had enough of his partner’s extremely sadistic behavior and left him in the middle of the ring.
Swerve In Our Glory (Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland) took on The Acclaimed (Max Caster and Anthony Bowens) in a rematch for the AEW World Tag Team Championship during Full Gear tonight.
At one point during the match, Swerve got his hands on a pair of pliers and attempted to destroy Caster’s fingers with it, prompting a huge save from Billy Gunn. Strickland then got inside the ring and handed the pliers to Keith Lee.
Swerve asked Lee to use the pliers on Bowens. The big man responded by throwing the pliers away. He even helped Bowens stand on his feet, to the shock of Strickland. Lee then walked out on his partner.
The Acclaimed got the win on the challengers. Check out the closing moments of the match here:
