I wouldn't like Swagger in NxT.

He has done it all he could have done in WWE.

Can't say anything about his mic work as I have never listened him but he was good enough in ring. Not great surely but almost good.

I would prefer Swagger wrestle outside of WWE instead of watching him on NxT. He could be a good addition to TNA, RoH or Lucha Underground.

I think Swagger has a place in WWE, I just think it's in the tag division. Back in the day, tag teams were meant to be a place where are wrestler who had some tools could partner up with another wrestler who also had some missing pieces. Together, they come out greater than the sum of their parts. With the upcoming brand split, if they split the tag teams between shows, you're going to need a few more teams.

For me, the perfect partner for him is Titus O'Neal. Both were college athletes, both are big strong fellas, Titus has some charisma but isn't going to carry a 20 minute singles match anytime soon. Swagger can work in the ring, but is a little light on charisma and mic work isn't his strong suit.

I see two options with this team. Option 1: Varsity Club. Have them toss on singlets like Rotundo, Stiener, and Dr. Death used to do. Give them a manager and talk about being superior athletes. Swagger carries the match and O'Neal gets the hot tag to clean house.

Option 2: Have them go in an APA like fashion. Not the Acolytes, but the boot wearing, jean wearing, ass kicking version of Farooq and Bradshaw. Hell, give them JBL as a manager. They don't have to talk much. I could really see them gelling well.

The two together would be different than any tag team on the main roster right now.

This is not the same, and in fact main roster guys in the WWE have already back down to NXT and it gave those guys HUGE boosts when they came back to the main roster. Zack Ryder, Tyson Kidd, Titus O'Neil, Cesaro, and Sin Cara all went back down to NXT and upon coming back they all received huge pushes in comparison to how they were booked in the past. So in short, a stint in NXT would be a way for Swagger to justify himself getting one more run as the United States Champion, or maybe even get him a run at the Intercontinental Championship so he can become a grand slam champion.

Whether you use the old or new format, Swagger wouldn't be a Grand Slam Champion. He's been World Heavyweight Champion, United States Champion, and ECW Champion.

Old criteria: WWE Championship (or World Heavyweight Championship) + Intercontinental Championship + European Championship (or Hardcore Championship) + World Tag Team Championship (or WWE Tag Team Championship)

New criteria: WWE Championship (or World Heavyweight Championship) + Intercontinental Championship + United States Championship + WWE Tag Team Championship (the original World Tag Team Championship no longer qualifies)

I think I threw in a tag title reign there somewhere lol. Idk, maybe him and Ziggler or him and Cesaro just seeming like an obvious choice for tag team champions through me off a bit. But still, him getting a nice run in NXT (in my opinion) could revive the life of Swagger in WWE. At least to the point where he's not just used on Superstars/Main Event, and actually gets a nice US/IC title reign.

Why wouldn't it? It's worked for other stars. Tyson Kidd, Titus O'Neil, Natalya, Sin Cara, and Zack Ryder have all gone back down to NXT and came out on the better end and have all lengthened their run in the WWE... In fact, every single one of them except Natalya and Sin Cara have all become a champion since being back on the main roster. So why wouldn't it work? Bray Wyatt also went back down to NXT as Husky Harris, came back, and is now one of the most featured stars in WWE today. Cesaro was doing absolutely nothing but jobbing with Swagger in the Real Americans until he went down to NXT where he would impress Heyman enough so that he can make a pitch for the next Heyman guy... and in doing so, ended up becoming one of the most featured stars in WWE.

So why wouldn't it work for someone like Jack Swagger? Why? Give some validity to your replies here and stop spamming.

What WWE did to them was wrong, but they're clearly never going to give those guys a fair chance. What happened to them was basically as if WWE went from the Hulkamania Era to the Attitude Era, and completely skipped over The New Generation Era. Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Yokozuna, etc., would have never gotten to be stars, and that's what happened to Swagger, Ziggler, Miz, Del Rio, and Sheamus. Their time at the top came and went in the blink of an eye, despite the fact that they're far superior to most of the talents who were given the pushes that should have gone to them.
This is so true! You know, since all these guys are still around, it could end up a great storyline! The storyline should talk how they were skipped over for these 'New Era' guys. It should lead to a war in WWE where guys like Orton and Cena are trying to maintain their spots as well.

I don't know about re-boot his carreer, but he could be a fine assett down there.

A solid enough wrestler skill-wise to be nicely formidable if given something other than 50/50 limp dick pushes and long bouts of bobbing.

He, Cesaro and Ziggler would be a good time down there.

I was just telling a friend that I completely forgot Swagger was even on the roster anymore. He got drafted to RAW but hasn't been seen... The guy must have REALLY pissed off the wrong people a few years back because I still can't fathom how he's been held back so much recently (aside from being fed to Rusev)

I really think he could potentially breakout and shine on Smackdown if given an opportunity. I'd be okay with them trading him with Miz (I love Miz, just fits better on Raw) and starting a run at IC title against Crews, Ryder, etc.

A trip to NXT would still be better than sitting sidelines on Raw though. He'd probably go in as a heel with attitude about being in NXT and would likely feud with Almas or Hideo, which would be some good matches. I dont think it would revitalize his career but its better than his current situation.
