I'll be pissed if they still go through with Swagger's push now.

Put someone in the match you can trust and won't let the company down. Ziggler, Henry, Christian anybody.

Jobbed out for the first half of 2012 and taken off TV call together for the second half. Gets this huge push and within weeks THIS is what he does?

Swagger/Zeb want the World title match on Raw this week.

ADR-Swagger have their match and ADR wins and looks strong in the process. Swagger/Zeb go on a racial tirade post-match, running down all non-Americans and even black people... and then Mark Henry comes out and destroys Jack Swagger. Mark Henry will come off as a babyface, but Mark Henry can still get heat afterwards as he'd transition into a program with Alberto Del Rio for the World title.

Henry-ADR at Wrestlemania for the World title. I don't know... Swagger doesn't deserve anymore TV time but you can't just have him disappear out of nowhere after winning such a big match. Henry or someone along those lines will have to take him out. Henry-ADR >>>>>>>>>>>>> Henry-Khali.

I feel bad for Dutch Mantell as he was making this gimmick work. Seeing as Swagger isn't Randy Orton, just cut your losses and/or demote him to TNA.

Problem is, they just did the PPV. If they boot him out, I guess throw in Ziggler.

Dutch has to be pissed at Swagger for more than just job reasons. His 16 year old granddaughter died this past summer in a car accident after the car she was in was struck by someone speeding.

Put Henry in there and have Ziggler cash in after Henry destroys ADR at Wrestlemania. I've seen ADR-Ziggler one-on-one way too many times recently.

I love the holier than though approach that most people are taking here. (You could definitely argue that my message may come off that way)

I don't really like Swagger, his angle is interesting. I could see them tying this into the storyline somehow and continuing with it, that's what I'm in favour of anyways.

I don't really care what he does to relax, DUI is dangerous, but I will take the innocent until proven guilty stance because I don't know the guy and am only reading about this on a trashy celebrity website.

No chance in hell this storyline continues. That's from WWE's Wellness policy. RVD dropped WWE and ECW title on consecutive days and then was suspended for 30 days. This Swagger story is spreading quickly, WWE can't hide from it. He's going to have his title match on Raw most likely, lose quickly and then be written off. I'll be shocked if he's on the Wrestlemania card.

Words cannot convey the stupidity of this situation.
Not a big fan of his to begin with but I was starting to get intrigued where this push was going to go.

Actually, WWE could use this as part of the conspiracy angle.

Highly unlikely but that's one way to salvage this. Swagger would have to job(duh) and potentially lose his job altogether...but this is wrestling after all.

Not like he pulled a Chris Benoit here.

Then again, even if he is 100% cleared or if they decide to punish him internally and keep him, he'll never get this push again and is destined to become fodder on Main Event.

There was no drinking. He was charged DUI on account of the dope possession. Its an automatic charge in Ms.

"He has been charged with DUI (not alcohol), marijuana possession, and speeding -- all misdemeanors."
From a WWE head.

Not that losing his spot matters, he has always been a channel changer for me.

lol. i was looking forward the world tit;e angle.
-all-american vs mexican
at the same time he has to worry about Ziggler trying to cash in. i absolutely loved where they were going this monday.

whatever. let him have the match and lose. cuz he screwed it.
Ziggler cashes in and wins after the match.
del rio takes his rematch for next PPV and we never hear about Swagger again

They put the kabosh on a red hot RVD.

Why would they keep a comatose Swagger?

Well that sucks.

Wouldn't necessarily call myself a "fan", but I always hoped he'd do well, especially with this new push.

I'm considerably eased in knowing at least he wasn't drunk at the time....kind of hard to take a DUI seriously without the presence of alcohol, but the law's funny at times.

Count me as one who hopes they try to use this as part of their angle, like saying the cop was Mexican or something.
