WWE Says Jack Swagger Is Still Under Contract

As he presumably ponders his next move away from Vince McMahon's wrestling empire, here are 7 ways WWE blew it with Jack Swagger.

The 6ft 7ins star made his debut in WWE in 2009 and a year later became the Heavyweight Champion, after defeating Chris Jericho.

Swagger signed a WWE contract in mid 2006. "When he is granted his release, Jack Swagger will remain under exclusive contract to WWE for 90 days and will be compensated accordingly during that period". The start and stop happens a lot, it's not just with me. "I'm not going anywhere". The negotiation was so good that McMahon didn't apply the 90 day clause.

Whilst the All-American wrestler from The University of Oklahoma went on to say he would now look at pursuing other opportunities outside of wrestling, and even mixed martial arts, he added how he was excited at the broadened world of professional wrestling, mentioning his excitement about going to Mexico, Japan and the United Kingdom.

It is unknown if Swagger will try to combat this clause or if he will simply wait it out before heading to the indies. Swagger thought he deserved a certain amount of money, the WWE disagreed, and now he's looking to part ways from the organization. After dropping the title to a returning Christian, Swagger was drafted to Raw.

The former World Heavyweight Champion revealed this week on the podcast Beyond the Fight that he's done with the sports-entertainment organization.

Corbin attacks Crews before coming face-to-face with Swagger: SmackDown LIVE, Sep. He lost again in a rematch, and this was his last feud within WWE.

Swagger is also being advertised for the WAW TV tapings taking place next weekend, so it appears as if WWE has indeed granted Swagger his release, and he likely will not have a no-compete if he is appearing at TV tapings.
