    Did I read that correctly, did they just job Cesaro out to Jack “freaking” Swagger? WTF kind of booking decision is that, terrible. Speechless

    • jdl

      Swagger is getting a legitimate face push against Rusev, they couldn’t have him job to Caesaro and still come across as a threat to Rusev even if they’re intending for him to lose the feud in the long run. Need I remind you of the boring and completely one sided feud they had when Caesaro broke away from the Real Americans and did nothing but win against Swagger? That was terrible booking, this is at least logical booking.

      • Xavier

        Swagger shouldn’t even be on the roster right now after all his BS, that’s my point. How many chances does a guy deserve. They could of out any number of guys in Swagger’s spot with Zeb. Zeb is the reason this thing is over, absolutely has nothing too do with Swagger whatsoever. It’s a shame Cesaro had to do the job here. Makes it pretty impossible to take Cesaro seriously now after jobbing him out to a midcard talent who can’t get over on his own with the charisma of a doorknob. Not too mention getting arrested while high and injuring countless of wrestlers because he’s reckless.

        • Alex

          I agree it’s what makes the Rusev vs Swagger feud so awkward. I cant cheer for Swagger because he should be long gone but it’s tough not to because Colter & Lana are doing such a good job getting the feud over. As awkward as it probably would of been I would of much prefered Cesaro keeping Colter and feuding with Rusev with Swagger getting the boot.

        • Bob’s Diner

          Yeah – how on Earth did this Cesaro/Swagger split end up benefiting Swagger???
          I’m genuinely confused at this point. I think most of us expected Cesaro to be on his way to the main event by now. At least not jobbing to one of the biggest clowns on the roster

    • savokes

      You took ALLLL the words outta my mouth!! I don’t get why Cesaro, of all people, had to be put in the position of jobbing to Thwagger…just based on principle!

    • Christen

      Cesaro isn’t exactly jobbing to swagger they need to make swagger look strong for the feud with Rusev. Cesaro had a great match on Raw with Cena he is being put with the authority. Cesaro will get a huge main event push eventually. Yes Swagger has done some bad things but who on the roster hasn’t? He is doing great as a baby face the fans seem to like it.

      I find it interesting they are restarting Swagger again, and as a face which is actually working… but Xavier is right on this one. Swagger has done some things in the past that haven’t rubbed people the right way & honestly, let’s face facts… Rusev & Swagger are over because of their managers. Rusev/Swagger isn’t about Rusev/Swagger – it’s about Lana/Zeb, and they are carrying this storyline. The two main guys who have beef with each other… don’t talk to each other. Hell, they don’t even… talk.

      Cesaro has a much brighter future than Swagger, and at this point, Swagger will go down to Rusev just as Big E did which totally derailed all momentum he had. This is all just to push Rusev right now & unfortunately, Lana is achieving more out of this than Rusev. In addition, Cesaro is in the same boat as Sheamus – no direction right now. And Sheamus is US Champion, which is even more sad – how are you a champion & have no direction? Hell, Diego & Fandango have more direction than Cesaro & Sheamus right now & that’s sad.

      Cesaro from Switzerland the neutral country…..Could add something to this feud

  • Special note was that the Jericho win bans Rowan from Ringside in Bray’s match at summerslam.

  • Christen

    Might want to add full SD spoilers It was said if Chris Jericho won it bans Rowan from ringside during SS

  • Rayner Chee-bai

    Cesaro taps to the Patriot Lock? Who in the blue hell booked Cesaro against Swagger while he’s in a mid of a big push?

    A legitimate tough guy tapped to a hold will put on a bad image ladies and gentlemen…

    • Avalanchian

      Cesaro isn’t really in a big push at all.

      • Xavier

        Well not anymore lol, losing to Swagger by submission clean is about as bad as it gets

      • Rayner Chee-bai

        by all mean, it’s Swagger that is in the push…

    • Mysterion

      Which push was that ? Jesus, Cesaro has a match against Cena in RAW on it’s assumed that’s a push beginning?

  • Mike McCarthy

    Why is AJ & Paige the only segment here that seems worth watching….

  • jus2cme

    It was cesaro who went to creative and pitched to be a Paul Heyman guy. Be carefull what you wish for…Cesaro could be a red hot face by now if not for that move that brought him down the card rather than up the card. Now he is a heatless but talentless heel who needs an avenue for a face turn.

    Swagger face move is natural and deals more with nationalism than sincere like. However a proud American playing a heel is not good booking in it’s own right.

    • Bryan

      Did you actually just call Cesaro “talentless”?
