I know TNA is currently going through a reshuffle but they have guys on the roster like Aron Rex who has lost his way a bit and was a signing from WWE and I think the same would happen to Jack Swagger.

Dutch Mantell holds the cards in this one, I assume he was happy with his time with Swagger and if he can think of a gimmick for Swagger then it makes a move to TNA more likely.

The whole time Dutch said "Make Impact Great" it sounded like he was gonna bring Swagger right then and there, its no coincidence that Swagger was vying for his release when his former manager and former partner are at the top of Impact wrestling!

Just waiting on Paige's movie to bomb, WWE to release her and her to pull a Cody/CM Punk and dominate!

TNA/IW/Jarrett/Athem, whoever, need to be careful with signing too many guys that worked for a lengthy period of time in wwe.

They have quite a few stars with the "former wwe" label as is. Lashley, Cody, Del Rio, Tyrus, Helms, Aaron Rex, and now Chris Masters and Matt Morgan(i've already seen people calling him a former wwe star, even though he's more of a returning TNA star.), and even the Pope.

That is enough, imo. Focus on signing guys above the 30 year old age range. As well as look to see who has been with the company for a while and push them for their loyalty. Guys like DJZ and Jesse come to mind. Both are constantly trying to improve, and their hard work should be appreciated.

Swagger won't add anything to the show. I would much rather see Eli Drake or Bram get the push that Swagger would.

Put him an mask and push him like Mantanza from Lucha. I know this sounds stupid, but, Swagger cannot speak with out the lisp. Unlike Rhodes, Swagger has not worked on hiding the lisp when talking. If they give him some sort of dark character who's one mission is to mess people up, it could work. Start him of slow, then build his way to the top if he is worth pushing that far. This would be a case of more action less talking which would work since Swagger can wrestle.

Or, at the very least, treat him like you did Lashley if and until he finds the comfort level required to make right by participating in talking segments often.

That is also a very good move too. Lashley has made a great improvement over the last few years. He is my favorite iMPACT star and Swagger could do this as well.

I don't have a problem with iMPACT signing WWE guys. It is sky rocketing them to the top right off rip that is the issue. Swagger is a good wrestler and he could make a good tag partner for someone like Godderz who can wrestle really good as well.

Starkist's idea is damn good. Don't do what WWE did with him. Make him a badass heel/face who is more of a silent character like Matanza. Give him a good manager or even a valet like Catrina is to Mil Muertos. Make him a dark character.

It's not like IMPACT Wrestling is full of dark characters. Let him be a dark character. He does have good skills in the ring. So, give him a proper gimmick and I'm on.

But if you bring him as Jack Swagger's copy, then I ain't interested. Better get someone like Kyle O'Reilly or Adam Cole. BAYBAY!

Default Mantell: Swagger to GFW Could Happen in the Near Future

Quote:
During today’s Global Force Wrestling conference call with Dutch Mantell and Bruce Prichard, it was revealed that by Mantell that former WWE Superstar Jack Swagger may appear on GFW sometime in the near future.

--

Typos and poor formatting aside, as I said in the OP, the writing has been on the wall about this since Swagger's granted release given Mantell's position of influence with the company and how closely the two worked together in WWE.
