A person who has garnered a lot of discussion over the past few years is Jack Swagger.
The guy is huge and a very talented wrestler. However, his biggest drawback has been is inability to connect with the fans.
I strongly feel that this is a result of his speech impediment that causes him to have a lisp. However, the WWE did not make it easy for for him either.
Once it became apparent that the impediment was there, they made a direct effort to use it in the storylines as a way for the baby faces to make fun of him. Thus, it made him a joke in the eyes of the WWE fans.
One Idea that has been passed around by fans who see the potential in Swagger was to make him a no-nonsense tough guy who doesn’t have to speak.
The WWE stepped slightly in this direction by paring him with Vickie Guerrero, however, he hasn’t been able to be a true tough guy. His character has been fodder for the likes of Santino Marella and Brodus Clay.
