All will not be nicely within the tag workforce partnership between Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland. That a lot was clear after they competed as a duo on this week’s episode of Elevation.
There was no basking in glory collectively since Swerve swerved Lee to remove him within the On line casino Battle Royale two weeks in the past. Swerve snickered at his personal sneakiness, whereas Lee seethed with anger.
I curious as to the ideas on this. As said beforehand, I’m conscious it was each man for himself.
Nevertheless, I had a possibility to do the identical. As an alternative, I removed Nese and saved him. And his face…appears to be like calculated to me. pic.twitter.com/O08nu4KMpG

Swerve tried to clarify that it was all truthful in a singles competitors making an attempt to attain singles glory. Lee wasn’t biting that line.
Lee was satisfied to simply accept a tag workforce reserving with Swerve by his facet for Elevation, nonetheless, it was apparent that Lee nonetheless wasn’t shopping for Swerve’s bullshit. Lee left Swerve hanging throughout their entrance.
When the time got here to complete Davey Vega and Mat Fitchett, Lee purposely ignored Swerve to go on their teamwork finisher. As an alternative, Lee hit a solo powerbomb for victory.
Swerve did some quick speaking to persuade Lee right into a fist-pound of camaraderie, however then Lee shoulder bumped Swerve on the way in which out to exit by himself. Swerve was left alone with a mischievous smile.
Seeing that shiny-toothed grin jogged my memory of Tuco from the The Good, the Unhealthy and the Ugly.
Each Swerve and Tuco are fast to acknowledge a helpful state of affairs and even faster to betray their companion for private acquire. Swerve has some extent evaluating Lee and himself to Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant. These basketball superstars weren’t one of the best of buddies, and but they managed to coexist to win three NBA championships. The query shall be if Lee’s good nature can tolerate Swerve lengthy sufficient to win gold earlier than they combust.
If Lee is Good and Swerve is Ugly, then Workforce Taz should be as Unhealthy as Angel Eyes. Very like Blondie and Tuco, the will to take out Ricky Starks and Will Hobbs could possibly be a unifying purpose inflicting Lee and Swerve to thrive as a tag workforce. That’s till Swerve stabs Lee within the again once more.
How do you see the partnership between Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland enjoying out?
