I think this was the final straw for swagger wwe were willing to push this guy and if I remember rightly was meant to win the whc at wm? He can't seem to connect with the fans but his ability to wrestle is amazing I think swagger should go to tna or Roh make a name for him self wrestle the like of Kurt angle show his true talent and make him self into a star then come back
His been pushed to the main event scene on two instances now and both times the fans haven't taken to him. WWE need to realise he just isn't champion material.
I thought he got quite a bit of heat once paired with zeb. And he puts on great matches. From what I've read his push was scaled back to wait and see the outcome of his court hearing. But from what I read the wwe is gonna put him back in the whc scene if everything buffed out ok. And since he just got probation and a fine, and he wasn't diciplined by management for using marijuana, I don't see why he wouldn't be back there. Zeb even mentions him on the shows to keep his name out there. I bet he'll pop up alongside those 2 from now on that his legal troubles are settled until he can compete again.
I'd like to see him and Cesaro tag. Swagger is a good wrestler, but no singles champion material in my eyes. Can't talk and the competition is better than him, in my humble opinion.
People compare him with Angle, which I believe is senseless. Angle is way better, in everything. Better wrestler, moves faster, and is way funnier. Angle had cool moments outside the ring, Swagger has none, and he's been at it for a while now.
Chris Jericho: 'Without a storyline, wrestling is just two guys in their underwear rolling around half naked.'
Swagger has zero star power and it will -never ever- get better for him. I think they should cut ties with him. Yes, he's got the pedigree being an amateur wrestler. Yes, he's a big big boy. However, he's just not someone you can put a lot of stock in. At best he's a mid-carder. I'm almost afraid to say the same thing about Antonio Cesaro but I still think it's a little too early for him.
Jack Swagger has reached his peak. He has proven that in the ring he can have decent to good matches, but really doesn't understand the psychology of working a crowd during matches. On top of that he has almost no charisma, which is unfortunate because the name Jack Swagger is such a great wrestling name. It is just too bad that swagger is something he is completely devoid of.
Though I am not a fan I don't want him fired. I would love for him to go back to jobbing every week, as that is the role I enjoyed him most.
His courtcase was today. My brother(a cop in the city where the courtcase is held) said he'd probably get a few days in jaill at the most, and some fines
EDIT- from the news section on this site
WWE star Jack Swagger was found guilty of DUI and speeding at his trial just an hour ago in Gulfport, MS. Swagger has been sentenced to six months probation, a $500 fine and he will also have to pay for all court costs related to his case.
Swagger was also sentenced to two days in jail, but his attorney was able to get that suspended, so he will not have to spend any time in jail. The judge also dismissed a possession charge against Swagger.
This is normally what happens to first-time offenders convicted of the same charges. The jail sentence is usually dropped and the person/people are put on probation and are forced to pay fines.

Cesaro teaming up with Swagger?? I always wanted a Cesaro vs Swagger match..hopefully WWE gives me that match whenever they decides to break the team of Cesaro n Swagger...
Me too. When Cesaro US champ with his old gimmick "I'm better than all the Americans" thing, and Swagger was announced to return, I wanted this to happen. Swagger & Cesaro are good in the ring, I'm sure they could have put some great matches. Could be a good Team. If the Usos capture the Tag Titles, perhaps Cesaro/Swagger team could go after them.

Even I thought they'll bring a face swagger against a heel Cesaro for US Championship..that would have been great....
When he's not being arrested, or out on injury, Swagger is one of the best talents on the roster. Especially with thdry toast bullshit we've had to put up with.
Talk about him being midcard at best, WTF? When we can have a half hour of Ryback and Cena punching eachother with a few botched suplexes thrown in. Reminds me of some fools on here not that long ago saying Christian didn't have any skill.
I was getting behind Swagger with this whole 'we the people' thing, but he kind of messed that all up.
