W.W.E. Thoughts: Remember This Name: Jack Swagger

The W.W.E. has done many things wrong over the last couple of months, however, bringing up Jack Swagger (real name Jake Hager) from their developmental league in Florida to the E.C.W. roster was one of their better moves.

If everyone plays their cards right, Swagger should someday become the face of the promotion. Swagger is 6'4", 265 and was an outstanding amature wrestler at the University of Oklahoma (home of other standouts such as the legendary Danny Hodge and Steve"Dr. Death"Williams).

He also seems to be a good talker, which is a rarity these days in the world of professional wrestling. Swagger is in many ways similar to Brock Lesnar without the "juiced" look. The only match I paid any attention to last night on E.C.W. was Swagger against Tommy Dreamer in a Greco-Roman style bout, which the former won.

The W.W.E. would be wise to take their time with this guy and not burn him out like they have done with so many others. With any luck, they've got a future star on their hands.
