Just a feeling I have. Riley was busted for DUI and he actually received a push a few months after and then how could we forget about Cole's tasteful "******" comment on twitter to Josh Matthews that saw him not only not lose his Wrestlemania spot but actually win the match? They have shown a lot more leniency lately. I just have a feeling that while they may put Swagger on thin ice, he's not totally ****ed just yet.

No way, Swagger is ****ed.

If he was the Jack Swagger of December 2012 that wasn't a blip on anybody's radar, then he'd probably be fine.

However, Swagger and the gimmick have been all over Major News outlets the past few weeks and the WWE have been catching major backlash from it (not enough to scrap it all together).

Now the guy who is the face of the angle gets promptly arrested for DUI and possession? The media will have a field day if no action is taken.

A guy who has been on thin ice for a year? A guy that Vince finally was willing to invest something into? He does THIS? Swagger can kiss his big push and Mania payday goodbye.

There isn't much damage control WWE can do to salvage this. As many have said, hotshot Swagger/Del Rio this Monday, Del Rio wins.. then move on by either a Gold Rush tournament or have Ziggler cash in that very night so we get Ziggler/Del Rio rematch at Mania.

They took 2 titles away from RVD in a matter of days after his arrest and they pulled Hardy and his big MITB push off of WrestleMania 24.

Yeah, safe bet is the World title match happens on Raw and Henry ends up with the chance.

I would say Ziggler cashes in on a Raw, but they've done ADR-Ziggler too many times recently. It wouldn't feel fresh. Their match from Raw this past Monday was pretty much a shorter version of their match on Main Event.

I'd rather watch Ziggler/ADR 100 times than Henry/ADR once. Already had enough of ADR vs. a giant for almost 3 months now.

I can see him losing his WM spot and jobbing out for a bit as some sort of repremand.

Dutch is putting out great promos. Its a shame.

I'm more interested in Zeb than Swagger. I wonder if they will just introduce someone new with him, and continue down the same path.

Daniel Bryan would be awesome in that role.

That is very true. Any time Swagger is on the mic, I'm just waiting to hear what **** will come out of Zeb's mouth. I think they could add someone to Zeb in time for WM.

Well he did tweet this three days before he got arrested. Notice the name of the song. Coincidence? I think not.

It was probably mandatory in the ECW dressing room to take some form of drug before driving home from the show so I'm sure Dreamer doesn't see it as much of an issue.

Good.. now they can bring Christian back as a heel and win the World Title. lol jokes.

I honestly think Swagger will go to Wrestlemania, get beat quickly (Sheamus vs Bryan fashion) to look really bad, Ziggler will attack from behind and win after a long match.

I was listening to a wrestling show last night on the radio and they had a former WWE writer on (name escapes me) and he said it wouldn't shock him if they turned this into a work to create even more heat around Swagger's character.

- No confirmed word yet on what kind of actions, if any, WWE will take against Jack Swagger after his arrest on Tuesday night. The only thing we've heard is that they were considering "booking changes" which can't be good for Swagger.
