Backstage Talk on Swagger & WM 29, Rhodes Volunteers for Rock Segment

Posted by Matt Boone February 22, 2013 5 Comments

- We noted earlier that Cody Rhodes participated in a post-RAW segment with The Rock in Lafayette earlier this week after the show went off the air. Cody actually volunteered for the segment and pitched the idea of him going out and taking a People’s Elbow and Rock Bottom.

– WWE sources note that Jack Swagger was scheduled to win the World Heavyweight Title from Alberto Del Rio at WrestleMania 29. No word yet on what his arrest means for booking plans but WWE creative was working late on Wednesday night to come up with ideas, which doesn’t sound good for Swagger and Zeb Colter.

There’s talk that if WWE officials saw fit to change the direction of the match, then Dolph Ziggler would most likely get the WrestleMania match with Del Rio.

If Swagger ends up suspended and loses the WrestleMania match, the arrest altogether would cost him upwards of $250,000.

      Greeville SC is advertising a post Wrestlemania RAW in April, and they announce that World Heavyweight champion Alberto Del Rio will be there. Take that for what its worth because yesterday it was the same promo, but didnt mention Del Rio as champ.

      Swagger is having a great push, especially since his return. Now it can be all over for him because he decided to get drunk, drive over the speed limit, and especially knowing he had weed in the car.

      Damn, can’t believe Swagger screwed up what could’ve been his first real run as champ. Well, congrats to Dolph I guess.
