Mogul Embassy Turns On Swerve Strickland, Allies With Christian Cage On AEW Dynamite

Swerve Strickland and Christian Cage came out midway through Wednesday’s “AEW Dynamite” and all eyes were on the AEW World Champion and his challenger. By the time the segment ended, Strickland found himself being stabbed in the back, and the Mogul embassy were the ones holding the knives.

Strickland opened the segment quickly taunting Cage for bringing “the rest of the Addams family” into their confrontation. Cage complied without much effort and began intimidating the AEW World Champion. Cage gradually and painfully vowed to steal everything from Strickland – from his hair to his gold teeth – until he took the title from Strickland. Strickland responded by appealing to the Mogul Embassy, ​​which consists of Toa Linoa and Bishop Kaun (collectively known as the Gates of Agony) and Brian Cage. Strickland compared himself and Christian to Kendrick Lamar and Drake, promising to defeat another questionable Canadian father figure.

For a moment it looked like Strickland had silenced his challenger, but everything fell apart when Brian Cage launched an attack on his former ally. The Mogul Embassy turned on Strickland and Christian watched gleefully as the champion was dragged out of the ring. The Mughal Embassy climbed the steel steps and powerbombed their former ally onto the announce table. In the closing moments of the segment, The Patriarchy met with The Young Bucks, who continued their hostile takeover of AEW programming, and the two groups praised each other for their work.

Gates of Agony’s last AEW appearance was a losing effort against current FTW Champion Chris Jericho and former FTW Champion Hook at “Big Business”. Brian Cage recently re-signed with AEW in April 2024. Despite the dissolution of the Mogul Embassy, ​​fans can likely expect to see more of Brian Cage and the Gates of Agony as they become entangled in the Strickland/Christian Cage storyline.
