Last year we saw numerous sights that we as fans never thought we'd see from AJ Styles in the WWE to Goldberg making his return. But another thing that made last year unlike any other was that wrestlers were actually standing up and asking to be let go rather than waiting for it. Names like Ryback, Cody Rhodes, and a variety of others asked for their release from the WWE last year which is something we never see. Recently news broke that Jack Swagger joined the list of talent to ask to be released and at first the WWE said no, but then as of earlier this week the WWE accepted his request and officially made Jack a free agent.
Swagger signed with the WWE in 2006 and to show how much things have changed when Jack signed the developmental territories were Deep South Wrestling and Ohio Valley Wrestling. Jack was assigned to DSW until the company folded and then was moved to OVW in early 2007 and didn't really last too long there before being reassigned to FCW. Jack would become one of the many developmental stars to make an impact on the ECW brand and used it to make a name for himself on the main roster.
Looking back on the career of Jack Swagger in the WWE we can compare it to that of Cody and Ryback as all three men now leave the WWE with untapped potential. Though the rumors of Swagger being his own worst enemy and that being the reason for his lost push that still doesn't change the fact that I believe Swagger has potential that he didn't reach in WWE. Either way I would like join the WWE in wishing Jack Swagger the best of luck in all his future endeavors.
