It’s been a while since Jack Swagger has wrestled in a WWE ring, as he’s currently focused on building himself up under his real name, Jake Hager, in the world of MMA.
Luckily for Hager he won his first fight, so he seems to be doing pretty good so far, and his next fight is expected to take place in May.
Jake Hager recently revealed on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness that MMA had been on his mind for a while prior to his WWE departure, but before he left he pitched a big angle to Vince McMahon.
“Before I left, Vince had caught me in the hallway and he told me that they were wasting me and I said, ‘man, that’s awesome to hear. Thank you for saying that. I’ll be in your office next week with ideas.’ And I pitched him an idea about leaving and having me go fight MMA and come back and kind of be a little controversy between us or something and then comeback type of deal. And he didn’t really want to do anything about it. And after that, not with him, but with everyone else, the communication really broke down, so I was like, ‘okay, it’s time to go.’ And so [MMA] was on my mind. I wanted to do [MMA] then.”
