Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee Reveal AEW Full Gear Looks Inspired by Metal Gear Solid

AEW Full Gear was definitely a game changer for many on the All Elite Wrestling roster after some huge wins and losses, and as it turns out, Swerve Strickland and Keith Lee came into the pay-per-view event with cool in-ring- equipment inspired by the Metal Gear solid series! While the former Sway in Our Glory tag team now have a lot more to think about following the event, leading up to their match against the AEW World Tag Team champions The Acclaimed, the two were more frayed than ever. This was reflected in their equipment when they called together Metal Gear solid to show the change.

As fully revealed by Swerve Strickland on Twitter after AEW Full Gear, he and Lee’s gear were inspired by Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty characters Raiden and Solid Snake. It was definitely a fun swerve to see the duo sneak into this scream in the midst of a pretty wild pay-per-view event overall, and one of the last bastions of fun they’ll have as a duo for quite some time as the end of their match was all to pass. You can check out Swerve Strickland’s revealing tweet below, along with a look at their gear in motion during AEW Full Gear:
