    Question jack swagger push to be decided zeb to be kept around

    credit f4wonline

    One WWE source notes that regardless of what WWE decides to do with Jack Swagger's push in the next few months, they expect the Zeb Colter character to be kept around. There's also belief that WWE will keep Dutch Mantell, the man behind Colter, employed in some capacity.

    I would hope so, I always thought it was stupid to bring someone in for a push then just completely write them off for no reason.

    When Zeb first came in, he impressed me but as the storyline has gone on i've really started to go off him.

    Maybe they could use him backstage, maybe as a booker for the diva's division.

    Fuck Swagger! Suspend his ass for his DUI and weed charge after Mania then put Zeb with Mark Henry and feud with Del Rio.

    I don't mind Zeb so I'm completely fine with him sticking around.

    Getting him away from the suckage that is Jack Swagger can only be a positive , especially if it results in Swagger fading away into obscurity once again and eventually off of television.

    I still can't quite believe that both Jim Ross and Dutch Mantell, two of the primarily respected wrestling people in the world, have hand-picked Jack Swagger as a future star. It baffles me.

    I hope after the Swagger aftermatch that Dutch can do something better than this current angle and not stuck with the racist gimmick.

    It would be pretty good if Zeb became the manager off Ryback.
    But with a different gimmick off course.

    More Zeb= more Oncall changing the channel unless there's a MAJOR gimmick change.

    I know Ross has but is Dutch on record backing Swagger as a star not in kayfabe? He could just be collecting a paycheck

    Not hard to see why both Jim Ross and Dutch Mantell think that considering how talented Jack Swagger is.

    I'm just putting two and two together. You may be right, I just doubt Dutch would come back unless he had a set plan of what he wanted to achieve.

    Maybe JR recommended Swagger to him, who knows.

    I'm actually more surprised Dutch hasn't been more vocal about Swagger's DUI. HE runs a foundation or something of the like because he lost a family member to a driver under the influence. Then again Dutch may want nothing to do with Swagger but was just being a professional and doing his job.

    Dutch/Zeb is great on the stick and at ring-side so i hope he sticks around in a less racist capacity.

    im tired of the vaccume of charisma that is thwack thwagga.

    This, and your dislike of Angle are probably the only two wrestling opinions of yours I disagree with Todd.

    Swagger has a ton of talent and gets way too much hate for his mic work. I am positively thrilled he is being given another shot.

    I agree with part of this.

    He really is good in the ring, i'm a fan of the aggression he's showing. His mic skills are pretty piss poor to be honest.

    I was pretty excited to see him get another shot, however since the DUI and weed incident, Swagger can go fuck himself. Any support i was willing to give him has been pissed away at this point.

    Great in ring talent, bad choices.

    Thanks Heteroflexible

    His athleticism lends itself to a LOT of potential. I'm not ignorant to that. But the guy has been around a long time and hasn't improved one iota for me. He has no star power, no draw to him in the ring, no 'charisma'. His mic work is absolutely awful IMO, although he didn't have a bad run when he was funnier, but the way he sounds will NEVER fit this current gimmick.

    His ring work is completely unremarkable, it's just pure athleticism and that's really not for me. Where is his crowd work? His heat? His ability to work a match and really work a crowd?

    I don't see it, but Dutch Mantell and Jim Ross and ten times the wrestling men that I am, so who am I to disagree.

    Why not punish swagger after mania? After the loss have swagger and Zeb cut a promo and Zeb tell swagger he is apart of the problem then Titus Oneal attacks swagger and becomes a racists and alings him self with zeb

    not a terrible idea but I don't think Titus needs a manager and he doesn't need racism to get cheap heat. I see Managers used for people who can't cut promo's without help.
