The returning, Jack Swagger was being positioned for a main event spot to work with the current WWE Heavyweight Champion, Alberto Del Rio at Wrestlemania 29 in the Metlife Stadium. In addition to a slight character change, they also gave Swagger a Manager/Mouthpiece in the form of Zeb Coulter(aka Dutch Mantel). Everything was rolling along just fine, especially with his big win at the recent WWE Elimination Chamber2013. The one downside, their politically driven promos were drawing fire from members of the Republican Tea Party. “Controversy creates cash…”, right? Well, it seems as though this whole setup might be a bust before they can even really do much with it. #1 Contender, Jack Swagger was recently pulled over for a DUI and is said to be found in possession of marijuana. What does WWE do from here? Will Swagger be punished or will he skate by with a slap on the wrist?
