According to numerous online reports, the current plan being thrown around WWE creative is to have “The All-American American” Jack Swagger drop the World Heavyweight Championship during the WWE Fatal 4-Way PPV this Sunday.
Jack Swagger is scheduled to defend his belt in a Fatal 4-Way this weekend against “The Straight Edge Superstar” C.M. Punk, Rey Mysterio, and The Big Show.
According to reports, the current plan is to bore us to death by continuing on with this overdrawn feud between C.M. Punk and Rey Mysterio. The early feeling backstage is that either Mysterio or Punk will win the championship on Sunday to set up a title versus mask type match down the line, possibly at WWE Summerslam.
Original plans within the WWE had Swagger retaining the world title to set up a showdown with The Undertaker. With “The Deadman’s” injury and plans for a matchup against “The Big Red Machine” Kane, it appears as if WWE doesn’t have a backup plan for Swagger.
From the look of things, WWE apparently really has it in for me and just loves to get my blood pressure pumping.
As many know, I have been tooting the horn, so to speak, for Mr. Swagger to finally get a much needed push. The guy has a ton of raw athleticism and potential, much like “The Next Big Thing” Brock Lesnar. I definitely thought his momentum and pre-title build was despicable but I thought if booked properly, we could see Swagger grow with the strap and really carve out his own niche.
Unfortunately for Swagger, outside of perhaps Mysterio, he has been one of the worst booked champions in World Wrestling Entertainment history.
We will see where Swagger goes in the future and how he is portrayed, if he indeed does drop the championship. In my opinion, this does not bode particularly well for his future, however.
