Jack Swagger requests release from WWE

Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger called into the Chael Sonnen podcast You’re Welcome to announce that he has asked the WWE for his release. Swagger noted he requested for the release yesterday (Tues. February 28, 2017) and said it is currently an ‘ongoing process.’

Swagger made the decision after contract negotiations hit a stall when the two sides were way off on financials. Swagger claims that the WWE doesn’t value him as much as he values himself. He also stated that he is looking forward to competing in places such as the UK, Mexico and Japan on the indie circuit, and is willing to compete in mixed martial arts (MMA) for the right price.

  • I got paid 104,000 bucks last year by freelancing on-line a­n­d I manage that by w­o­r­k­i­n­g in my own time f­o­r several hours each day. I’m using a business model I found online and I am so amazed that i was able to make so much money on the side. It’s so user friendly and I am just so happy that i discovered this.

I’m using an earning model I came across from this website i found online and I am excited that i made such great money. It’s really beginner friendly and I’m just so grateful that i found it.

    Into MMA he goes, good luck… Punk.

  • MindTricked

    Good for him. He’s been buried for years since he dropped the title. Creative had nothing for him, and when they did use him, it was to mediocre effect. Plus, I’m not sure he was EVER over with the Universe.

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    Damn shame! I mean i cant say i blame him given how hes been treated, but he really was a truly giftftrd athlete who like Wade barrett for example was destined for better things, yet suffered from the wwes moronic booking. Which is a real shame especially now Kurt Angles back in the WWE

  • Kristopher Robinson

    That’s true, but Orrin can do no wrong lol. He’s was a complete douche for quite awhile too

    Should have demanded his release the exact moment after he took a cobra and got pinned cleaned. At least he was a world heavyweight champion as well as an Ecw champion. More than what Wade Barrett and a lot of the others who were misused got.

  • D2K

    True, but no more so than Randy Orton. I agree that he has to be accountable for his mistakes, but WWE management is not known for the virtue of democracy.

  • Kristopher Robinson

    Agreed, but there have been multiple times that he was on the right path and then kept getting himself in trouble.

  • D2K

    Right now definitely a good time for indie bookings. That’s why it is always good to save your money if you ever do make it to WWE. Make solid investment that pay off regularly. That way of the relationship ever goes sour, you can always go back to the indie circuit and name your price. It has to be a great feeling to be able to wrestle because you WANT to rather than because you HAVE to.

    I don’t trust TNA right now. Too much shade has gone down and is still going down. ROH is a better choice I think.

  • Arnold Jackson

    Totally agree, now is a great time to leave. TNA now has money and spots to burn if he wants to go that route. Personally if I was him I would do a short run with ROH and reinvent myself. He is a big boy and that will really show once he hits the Indy scene.

  • D2K

    I don’t blame him. It’s a shame how he is not being used. Also a shame not to be able to see him and Angle involved in something.
