Shane "Swerve" Strickland Addresses Future Of Hit Row
What is Hit Row's future?
Ahead of Hit Row reuniting at an upcoming MCW Wrestling show on March 19 in Parkville, Maryland, Shane "Swerve" Strickland has addressed the future of the faction, noting he is focused on himself right now.
"The group going to another promotion together is always an option," Swerve said during a K&S WrestleFest signing. "But right now I'm focused on myself and what I have to do. I'm at an older age. My persona with the pro wrestling business and being on screen is always maturing. I'm glad I had fun in my time with Hit Row and doing something that has never been in done in NXT, we rapped and cyphered on NXT on national TV, that's never been done before.
"That was a fun time and going into this realm of this character was really cool, but I'm maturing and moving on to something greater. I have to grow every part of that persona. You see me come out to DEFY in a suit and glasses, 'Oh, this is not the same Swerve like when he came in.' I want to keep going and never come back the same. I'm always evolving."
Hit Row, composed of the then-Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, Top Dolla, Ashante "Thee" Adonis, and B-FAB, joined forces in May of 2021 and remained together until their releases in November. They achieved success as a group on NXT but were quickly let go upon being called up to the main roster.
Strickland has since re-emerged outside of WWE, performing for the likes of PROGRESS and NJPW.
