Jack Swagger recently successfully debuted for Bellator MMA.

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion talks about his first fighting experience and the rush he gets from victory as he prepares for his next fight on May 11. Below are some highlights:

Jack Swagger on having his Pro Wrestling family in his corner for this journey:

“Never in my wildest dreams did I expect such an outpouring of support from the wrestling world for my fight. Not only was it cool to be a part of it, but to be at the center of it was so humbling, and made everything that week so special. It makes me want to tear up, and I’d like to send all the wrestling fans and the wrestlers a big thank you.”

Jack Swagger on the rush of victory and the thrill of competition:

“Once you get your hand raised, it’s like an addictive chemical. I just want to get back in there. I had a group meeting with the team on Tuesday, and next week we’re only 11 weeks out, so it’s time to buckle down and do it all over again.”
