jack swagger

Jack Swagger will have to wait until his court date to find out his legal punishment regarding his recent DUI arrest but the WWE wrestler has already seen some professional consequences for his actions. The WWE has pulled Swagger from this weekend’s wrestling events.

The Wrestle Zone reports that Swagger will not wrestle this weekend.There are also rumors that Swagger could be pulled from Wrestlemania 29. He is still scheduled, however, to fight on Raw next week and to tape Smackdown on Tuesday.

Swagger, real name Donald Jacob “Jake” Hager Jr., was arrested earlier this week in Gulfport, Mississippi after taping an episode of WWE SmackDown. Hager was charged with speeding, a DUI, and possession of marijuana.

The Asheville Citizen reports that Swagger faces monetary fines (about $1000) for his first DUI offense and he could also lose his driver’s license for 90 days.

The real monetary hit will come if the WWE decides to pull Swagger from WrestleMania 29. Swagger was scheduled to win the World Heavyweight Title from Alberto Del Rio, according to Wrestle Chat, but that may change now that he has been arrested for a DUI.

The wrestling site reports that if Swagger gets pulled from WrestleMania 29 the DUI arrest would end up costing him about $250,000.

    He does not deserve the title anyway. He has not paid his dues and the WWE needs to pull him from Wrestlemania 29. They have punished other wrestlers because of their actions and he is not better so let's send the WWE a message and encourage them to pull him.

    True. I will never understand either. Of course the Elimination Chamber was a complete disappointment for me anyway. But that is life.

  3. Alice Martin

    Agreed. Also happened to Jeff Hardy and many other wrestlers. Swagger is no better than they are. He actually sucks in my opinion

    what about santinos OWI and marijuana roids and hgh…throw that weirdo back to canada… or prison.

    Cena's Dr wont give him anymore HGH because his knuckles are fusing together… but Ryback can make his own roids, get hgh scripts and be the face of this closet company? Gross forehead protrusion and water retention on Ryan Reeves face and head…gross. No beard, he looks like a water balloon on roids. These bums need a prison cell.

    Since someone can't spell ^, Rob Van Dam (and Hardy, Sting, Hogan, Chavo) is on the TNA roster which airs on Spike Thursdays at 8p.m. ET

    Exactly what I said in my message to WWE. The thing that really pissed me off is just this week on Raw, in Swagger's "State of the Union" they (Swagger & Colter) talk about being law abiding citizens.

  8. Mike Dirienzo

    hes mostly a joke undeserving a title match anyways so hopefully at the very least hes gets suspended from wrestling and wont spoil wrestlemania. randy orton should be in his place at wm anyways.

    "WE THE PEOPLE"= drunk driver and I'm a Jack Swagger fan. now we all now what happened with wrestlemania one night later. Dolph Silggler is wwe champion.
