-Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter were interviewed by Jim Ross, who talks to the crowd being from Oklahoma. First off, it was genius for Swagger to immediately bash Oklahoma after Ross said Swagger went to school there. With an intense fan base like that, it makes it so simple for Swagger to be hated. That was the first part of genius and the second was Zeb vs. Jim. Colter is absolute money each time he talks especially with a veteran like Ross helping him out. Colter continues to be the guy that you want to hear from, even though you hate what he says. Swagger is being completely forgotten at times because how good Zeb has been. Will this affect Swagger? I do not think so because he will ultimately be the wrestler who puts on a show at Mania. I get more excited each week it passes.
– Swagger is at his best because he is focusing on his strengths, while working on his weakness as he is being helped along the way. Isn't it funny that Zeb and potentially Ricardo could be two guys that help their counterparts to the point where they become very important? Or, it could fall flat on their faces and hurt Del Rio and Swagger in the long run.
-Fandango debuts…but does not wrestle. I do not know what it was, but I absolutely loved it. He did not wrestle because Matt Striker could not pronounce his name correctly. I think he has charisma and has the look of a superstar, but will this gimmick really be the one that gets him over? He could have a Brodus Clay effect, where people like him for a little bit but get sick of him quickly. Follow his lead…. that is clever. Grade: B-
