Brock Lesnar vs. Jack Swagger

While potential opponents stake their claim as to why they should be the next one to take on U.F.C. Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar, I figure I would throw out a name: Jack Swagger. Swagger, real name Jake Hager, played football and wrestled at the University of Oklahoma before switching to wrestling full-time in his sophomore year. Hager was an All-American wrestler and set the single season record for most pins at 30. Jake Hager is now known as Jack Swagger in the W.W.E. and is quickly becoming a top heavyweight in the business.

Now, I'm not suggesting a mixed martial arts match between Swagger and Lesnar, but how about a collegiate-style wrestling match? Lesnar was an all-American wrestler at the University of Minnesota and a two-time national wrestling champion.

I know it will never happen, but it probably would be better than anything else out there right now.
