Strickland was recently known as Isiah “Swerve” Scott during his time in WWE where was reigned as the NXT North American Champion before having brief call up to the main roster as part of Friday Night SmackDown. He was released by WWE in November of 2021 due to budget cuts. Since his release he has been active, appearing for several promotions including the TERMINUS.
