Swagger is thankful for the career he's had in WWE.
In March of 2017 former World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger was released from his WWE contract after tallying up 11 years with the company. Since then Swagger has ventured off into MMA and will begin competing as a part of their heavyweight division this year. While speaking with Chuck Carroll of CBS Sports Local Swagger stated that he has no ill feelings regarding his time in the sports-entertainment company.
"No, no. I look back at my career and I’m very thankful." He says. "Successful people don’t look back and waste energy on what could have been and all the stuff that didn’t happen, it’s just a waste of time and a waste of energy. So, it’s tough, but you just move forward and keep doing what you know how to do and work hard and be a good person, and the rest will take care of itself. If my fans want to see me back in the WWE, you know, never say never, but we got a big agenda ahead of us for 2018 that we’re pretty excited about."
It was recently announced that Swagger signed a "multi-fight" deal with Major League Wrestling. There are a number of notable names who work with the company and Swagger name-dropped a few on his list who he is eager to get in the ring with.
"MVP, Low Ki, Matt Riddle, Rey Fenix, Penta, Shane Strickland, Jeff Cobb. Oh man, I could go on and on." He stated. "I might have to line them all up at once. I’m really impressed with those guys and what I seen they can do and I want to get in there with them because that competition always makes people better and it’s going to force me to really step my game up, and it’s going to be exciting when that happens."
"The Real American" also spoke on Tony Schiavone coming out of retirement to commentate for MLW, hating the term "indy wrestling/promotion", and more. To read the full interview with Jack Swagger, click here.
