We’re told Jack Swagger’s stock has been plummeting “big time” lately. As if things couldn’t get any worse after his arrest in February, he’s accumulated a lot of backstage heat for being unsafe in the ring. There’s been some talk about phasing out his push over the next few months, however, the company remains high up on Zeb Colter.
Colter has received very high marks for his work and is held in high regard as an important mouthpiece that can help up and coming workers get over. We’re told rather than simply replace Swagger with someone else, there’s been talk about having Colter manage multiple workers where he would operate as the mouthpiece.
Nothing remains certain as Swagger has evaded burial so far, able to continue to get a main event spot after getting arrested just days after wining the WWE Elimination Chamber. Many believe if there were plans for him to go over Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania 29, they were dropped when he was arrested.
