Documentary About AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland In The Works

A documentary about AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland is in the works.

As reported by Matt Grobar of Deadline, the partnership between Swerve Strickland and Flash Garments will featured in a documentary. Kenny and Keith Lucas are joining forces with Mookie Thompson for the project. The documentary will highlight the partnership and the combination of hip-hop and wrestling. The duo’s partnership led to Swerve Strickland’s popular theme song, “Big Pressure”.

“Flash Garments and I were introduced to one another at very interesting times in our lives,” explained Strickland in a statement to Deadline. “We knew we were meant to make history with one another by collaborating hip hop and pro wrestling on a different level. The Lucas brothers captured it in the best light possible.”

Garments stated, “Well I was honestly shocked and honored for the Lucas Bros to take interest in wanting to make a fusion documentary regarding pro wrestling and hip hop to highlight us and our impact in both respective fields. Get ready for a premium and unique viewing experience.”

The Lucas Brothers Comment

The Lucas Brothers, who were nominated for an Oscar as contributors to Judas and the Black Messiah, also commented. They emphasized the importance of the story.

“As lifelong fans of hip-hop and wrestling, we were instantly captivated by Swerve and Flash’s groundbreaking work in AEW. In an era where the media often portrays black men in conflict, their partnership is a beautiful example of the incredible things that can happen when African American men work together. We believe their story needs to be told.”

The duo said that the documentary “will showcase how their unity and shared vision have defied stereotypes and proven that with collaboration, anything is possible. It’s a powerful counter-narrative that deserves the spotlight.”

WrestleZone will provide more information as it becomes available.
