Jack Swagger Speaks On Adam Rose Feud, Sami Zayn, His Dream Match & More

The following are highlights of a Huffington Post interview with Jack Swagger:

We have home-grown Divas, US and Intercontinental Champions but we’ve never had a British WWE champion nor a PPV in some time – aren’t they overdue? “Absolutely. Being a Real American I can admit that the British talent roster is amazing. It keeps getting deeper and deeper every year and I think we have more UK superstars on our roster than ever before. I think it’s only a matter of time before there’s a British WWE champion.”

Hulk Hogan is in the UK for your Smackdown television taping at the London O2 arena, which WWE Hall of Famer or legend would you like to face and why? “That’s a good question. I have always been a fan of Scott Hall (Razor Ramon). He’s always been one of my favourites and he has one thing that you just don’t get on TV anymore… and that’s chest hair! I think we need tons and tons more chest hair. I can’t grow any so don’t expect it from me. But seriously, I think a Scott Hall/Razor Ramon and Jack Swagger would have an unbelievable match.”

Adam Rose from NXT is new to the main roster and has been causing you trouble in recent weeks. Are you worried that he might make his name at your expense – like divas champion Paige did with AJ Lee – or do you see this as a tribute to you as a ‘guy to beat’? “I don’t really see this as him making his name at my expense, rather I see this as about the future. WWE is going to continue to develop young talent from NXT and that will be driving the competition up on the main roster. I’m always a firm believer that competition makes everyone better, makes our product better, makes our roster better and it’s going to make the matches and what we deliver even better – so only good things can come from such competition.”

Who should we look out for at NXT as a future WWE star? “They’ve got so much amazing talent down at NXT. The one I’m most familiar with is Sami Zayn. I’ve been in the ring with him personally and was very impressed by his talent, athleticism and charisma- so he’s going to be one to look out for.”

      Wish they’d give swagger a gd push or at leadt a win or two!! Know he messed up before but let’s move on!

      • mac888

        He’s a good worker but bland character with no mic or promo skills. Charisma factor is 0. He’s already peaked I’m afraid. He is now being used as enhancement talent which is a shame

        • Al Oli

          He has not peaked whatsoever. He’s better then he has ever been before. Take it from me I used to loathe the dude. When he came back with Zeb he totally reinvented his career.

          • mac888

            I meant through the eyes of WWE he has peaked and they don’t know what to do with him. His drug arrest really hurt, he may languish in the mid card for years as punishment. You gotta be close buddies with management if you wanna get arrested and continue your career in WWE

        You need to also realize that Swagger has gotten in trouble with the law multiple times. He was in line to with the WHC from Del Rio but was cut due to him getting tangled up in some affairs with the law.

        • jammy

          Yep. Thats why I said he messed up.

      • Phanto

        Ziggler > Swagger. Just saying

        • jammy

          100% agree but the article is about swagger, not ziggler. Both deserve a push imo

    • ibeBrave

      Push this guy turn him and zeb face already…Zeb can be funny as Shiyatt on the mic + he’s so skilled on it as well. These two if they were given the opportunity can main event!

      Zeb would be the perfect leader for the Lemon Party.
