Backstage News on the Brogue Kick, Orton-Ziggler, Swagger’s Return

– After taking some time off in the storylines last Monday at RAW, WWE will be keeping Jack Swagger off TV for a few weeks and he may return to TV as a babyface. Swagger is scheduled to appear on RAW when they return to his home state of Oklahoma on October 1st, the same night that some kind of festivities are planned for Jim Ross.

– As noted earlier, WWE is teasing Dolph Ziggler vs. Randy Orton for the Night of Champions pay-per-view. Ziggler has demanded the match and apparently SmackDown General Manager Booker T will make his decision on next week’s show, just days before the pay-per-view.

– reports that WWE planted the seeds for the Brogue Kick being banned on RAW recently when Sheamus won a match by submission with the Texas Cloverleaf. Now that Booker T has banned the Brogue Kick, speculation is that Sheamus will retain his World Heavyweight Title with the Cloverleaf. For those wondering, the ban on the Brogue Kick is just temporary for the storylines.

  • Paul E Not-so-Dangerously

    Am I the only one who LIKES Swagger’s hair? His old hairstyle looked so gay, he looked like a teenybopper.

  • The Real CM Punks Promo

    Who else mistakens Swagger for Biff from Back to the Future?

  • xSwellx

    Just curious, but at any point in time was it refered to as the texas “Cloberleaf” in stead of cloverleaf?

  • W.cares

    How about “The Four Leafed Clover” for a name for his submission hold?

    As for Swagger, JR gets into the ring to thank this hometown for coming, a superstar comes out and tears into JR and his hometown, said superstar grabs JR and Swagger makes the save.

  • Bobobobobo

    He should rename it the Irish Cloveleaf. And i’d support Jack Swagger as long as he does something about that lame hair

  • Austin

    I feel like the only person that thinks that since the Brogue Kick is banned Ziggler will be able to easily cash in his briefcase.

  • Jimbo

    What’s with WWE recycling so many storylines at the same time? Banned finishing moves, unsafe working environments, and superstars walking out on the GM…Just becaise senile old McMahon can’t remember his own product doesn’t mean we can’t either.

  • Kamala’s foot

    yeh have swagger save the guy he put in a ankle lock once back in the cole storyline, rividing stuff

  • sam


    yh thats how they will turn him, have swagger save J.R

  • Bill

    Honestly, have a generic heel try to make fun of JR in OK, then have Swagger make the save. As for Sheamus, he really needed to add variety to his move set. It’s Brogue Kick this & Brogue Kick that. Dean Malenko would be proud.

  • Buttercastle

    I’m guessing they “banned” his move because it’s a direct strike to the opponent’s head? What about the GTS? I realize CM Punk is on a different show with a different GM but if they are gunna make this rule about one superstar why not across the whole roster?

    ..or he could use the celtic cr– white noise

  • I knew it! He’s gonna go over with the fans too.
