Rapper Floors AEW Star with a Punch on Dynamite


A chart-topping rapper left a strong impression on a pair of AEW stars during Wednesday night’s Fyter Fest Night 3 episode of “Dynamite.”

Kevin Gates was shown sitting at ringside during an in-ring championship celebration for new AEW Tag Team Champions Swerve In Our Glory (Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland). Strickland and Lee reported it to fans live at Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia.

The situation escalated when Mark Sterling and Tony Nese interrupted the celebration and went to ringside. Sterling brought his petition to remove Strickland from the AEW roster and tried to convince Gates to sign it. When Gates refused, Sterling retaliated with insults.

“Like Swerve Strickland, you are untrustworthy and your music sucks!” Sterling yelled in Gates’ face.

Gates then walked through the barricade into the ringside area. Sterling rushed over, leaving Gates face to face with Nese. As Sterling continued to taunt him into the microphone, Gates grabbed the chain around Nese’s neck and landed a short right hook to the chin that immediately floored the 16-year-old pro wrestling veteran. Moments later, Strickland smashed a cake in Sterling’s face.

Swerve In Our Glory won the AEW Tag Team Titles during last Wednesday’s “Dynamite.” They dethroned the Young Bucks by winning a three-way title match that also included Ricky Starts and Powerhouse Hobbs. Despite speculation about the game’s final moments, Tony Khan made it clear that the result would stand.

another rapper, Jermaine Dupri, who also appeared on Wednesday’s “Dynamite”. He was alongside Stokely Hathaway in the corner of TBS champion Jade Cargill and Kiera Hogan for their match against Athena and Willow Nightingale. Otherwise, Dupri did not get physically involved in the action.
