Rick Ross will appear on the “Holiday Bash” edition of AEW Dynamite.
In a tweet, AEW president Tony Khan announced that the popular rapper will mediate the face-to-face meeting between Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland on Wednesday night. Ross previously popped up on the November 2 episode alongside Strickland as tensions between Lee and Swerve continued to rise. The following week, Lee walked out on Strickland during their match against AEW World Tag Team Champions The Acclaimed at AEW Full Gear.
Strickland abandoned Lee during their bout at ROH Final Battle, and the former tag team champions will finally meet up on Wednesday. Ross managed to keep the two stars on fairly decent terms last time, so fans will have to wait and see how he could impact the situation on “Holiday Bash”.
We'll be celebrating Wednesday with our annual #HolidayBash just days before Christmas, a great night of
AEW stars & great wrestling
