Jack Swagger DUI & Drug Arrest: What WWE Wellness Policy Could play into this?

Discussion in 'RAW' started by Super Saiyan Goku, Feb 20, 2013.

  1. Earlier today, TMZ.com broke the story that WWE superstar Jack Swagger was arrested in Mississippi last night after a SmackDown taping and charged with DUI, marijuana possession and speeding (all misdemeanors).

    Swagger is in the midst of the biggest push of his career and is scheduled to challenge for Alberto Del Rio’s World Heavyweight championship at WrestleMania 29. It remains to be seen how WWE will respond to Swagger’s DUI & drug arrest, but the following portion of WWE’s Wellness Policy could spell trouble for him:

    “Any WWE Talent, who is arrested, convicted or who admits to a violation of law relating to use, possession, purchase, sale or distribution of drugs will be in material breach of his/her contract with WWE and subject to immediate dismissal.”

    “Subject” to immediate dismissal does not mean mandatory dismissal. Countless WWE wrestlers have been arrested for DUI in recent years, however the drug possession charge could really hurt him.

    Well, the timing is awful. Not only did he completely and unquestionably screw up his push, but it wasn't even the real heart of 'Mania season yet. There's still plenty of time to change the plans and let him get kayfabe-injured out of 'Mania.

    Been seeing people mention that his anti-immigration character could play a role in this, with how mexicans are stereotyped to be smuggling drugs across the border, and that that could doom him like it did Serena. Think this part of this is massively overplayed.

    But, he was in the doghouse for his general attitude, then falling asleep during a production meeting. WWE was still high on him but they jobbing him out to send a message. Apparently that message wasn't sent, and I can't see this guy keeping his job after this. Later, bro. We'll have fun seeing Cesaro getting pushed in your place.

    What's most concerning to me is that Swagger was driving a Ford Taurus

    I did not know that was why he was in the doghouse do u have a soure to prove they as that is 1st i half had of that? As for who going to take place i still say that should go with fiiger cahs in and beating del rio for the title and the Y2J win the number 1 match. how that will pick a new number conder and how to write off swagger is still to TBT? But I said Y2J come out with the win and Figger cash in his MITB on Del Rio.

    The production meeting? Saw it in a PWTorch article on the matter, but it was taken down. (http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/WWE_News_3/article_68800.shtml) I'll keep looking for it.

    All of us would be happy getting Ziggler/Y2J for the belt, definitely. Or ADR/Jericho or Ziggler, or ADR/Mark Henry (setting up Ziggler). There's countless ways they can go.

    Who knows, they may not even bother punishing Swagger until post-Mania...

    Why, man? (Hey, hey)

    True but if Swagger was sopost to win at WM29 and win the World Title U CAN KISS THAT GOOD BYE! Del Rio will keep title know made what now if the don't punish Swagger and keep the storyline going. But if that do punish him go in a different storyline. I said Figger win the World Title from Del Rio on Raw it make sense since Figger was close to cash in last win it have not been for Rocad R. As for Del Rio keeping title and just filling Swagger spot with someone else I can't see it Mark Herny just came back from a 9 month injury he should be in that match then again Swagger should not have either! As for a Del Rio/Figger feud at WM29 that would be dumb b/c figger MR.MITB so the only way that would work is if Figger said he is cash in at WM29 like Cena did. Which Figger will not b/c he a heel. He would do a cheat cash in like everyone else other Cena and RVD. So I really fell the only thing that can do if that punish Swagger is Figger win the World Title for Del Rio on Raw and Y2J win the number 1 conder match whatever match that would be in?

    It was brought up elsewhere how Bruno might play a part on what happens to Swagger. He agreed to be inducted into the HOF because he was shown proof by Triple H that the business had improved and cleaned it;s act in regards to the drug policy, PG rating, etc. How would it look to Bruno if they just give Swagger a slap on the wrist and still let him compete for the belt at WM after some pretty serious violations?

    Looks like good ol' JR is still on Swags' side:

    Nice point. I remember that in Bruno's run in the 80s, he refused to ride with newer wrestlers out of fear of being in a car that was busted for drugs and steroids.

    I don't feel like they'll cancel his match though.
     
  18. More on Jack Swagger DUI & Drug Arrest:What WWE Wellness Policy Could play into this?

    hay it his own fall.

    Wonder if Dutch Mantel would even want to manage this fucking douche considering this.

    I personally like the Zeb Colter stuff and think it has potential, but it could work with someone better than Swagger. Just have Del Rio injure Swagger with his cross arm breaker, or have Colter fire Swagger for being an irresponsible American who drinks and drives, and then introduces someone else in his place. (That might take some time, I'm not saying said person should face Del Rio at Wrestlemania.)

    Also, word is is that WWE are already considering booking changes. If you're listening closely Swagger, that's your push that's derailing.
     
  20. his?

    If true, that would be a short run for their new Mexican hero. Also, losing a quarter mill? :damn: Hope that was the best weed you've ever had Jackie
