One of Swerve Strickland’s henchmen, Trench, has left AEW after his deal had expired, while the other henchman in Parker Boudreaux is still with the promotion.
Trench, real name Granden Goetzman, is said to have departed from the promotion and was removed from AEW’s official roster page. Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported on Monday that Goetzman had left AEW as his contract was expired.
Trench was introduced by Swerve Strickland as part of Mogul Affiliates alongside Parker Boudreaux in December last year. While he accompanied Swerve around for 3 months, he was never part of any matches during his time in the promotion. Trench was written out of the storyline after an attack from Keith Lee.

Parker Boudreaux was also written out of the storyline in a similar manner, but he has now tweeted that he is still with AEW. Rumors were there that he had also left AEW along with Trench. Fightful Select reported last week that there is no creative plan in place for Boudreaux and Trench.
Swerve Strickland moved on from The Mogul Affiliates when he joined hands with The Embassy and created a new faction called “The Mogul Embassy”. Prince Nana, Brian Cage, Toa Liona and Bishop Kaun are part of this faction alongside Swerve. It remains to be seen if Boudreaux also joins the faction upon his return.
Strickland is set to reunite with Keith Lee on this week’s Dynamite episode as part of The Blind Eliminator Tag Team tournament. Keep tuned in for more news and updates.
