1. A joke that one wrestler does to another. 2. A false report that a wrestler or promoter leaks to the press. 3. When a finish of a match is changed so that all of the industry insiders are left shocked.
A swerve is a professional wrestling term in which a wrestler suddenly turns against another wrestler who is supposedly his friend. This is a start to a feud and a storyline between the two wrestlers that would explain the reasons for the swerve. While the purpose of a swerve is to surprise the fans, poor booking may result in some very predictable or senseless swerves.
Swerve is the name given to several fictional characters in the Transformers universes. Swerve is always depicted as an Autobot land vehicle with red color and is always a remold or repaint of another toy.
