Wrestler Roderick Strong Makes AEW Debut to Killswitch Engage Classic
Everything appears right in the world, especially if your world is that of pro wrestler Roderick Strong, who made his return to the mat Wednesday (April 26) with some familiar theme music, that of Killswitch Engage's "The End of Heartache." Strong, who served a long stint with the WWE, has now joined All Elite Wrestling and his debut also reunited him with his onetime tag team partner Adam Cole.
Cole was in the midst of a significant beatdown from members of The Jericho Appreciation Society, and while he was initially assisted by two other wrestlers, it wasn't until Strong's arrival that the tables truly turned. As the furious fight was going on, all of a sudden the guitar and vocal sounds of Killswitch Engage's "The End of Heartache" filled the venue, causing members of the Jericho Appreciation Society to briefly be distracted as Strong entered the ring.
