The key objective within Florida Championship Wrestling is to train the next generation of WWE Superstars.

ABOUT JACK SWAGGER:

At 263 pounds, "The All-American American" Jack Swagger first came to the Land of the Extreme as part of ECW General Manager Theodore Long’s New Superstar Initiative on Tuesday nights.

Growing up, he admired sports-entertainment greats Danny Hodge and Dr. Death Steve Williams, both of who would personally help him in his future training.

First getting involved in wrestling at age 5 and attending a high school that boosted several state wrestling championships, “The All-American” quickly developed into an outstanding amateur wrestler, becoming a two-time high school Heavyweight State Champion. In true American fashion, he earned a full scholarship to a Division 1 School in both wrestling and football.

Swagger’s tremendous amateur wrestling background carried him into the world of sports-entertainment, in the tradition of legends Bob Backlund and Hall of Famers Jack and Gerald Brisco. His defined technique promised to bring a completely different style to the Land of the Extreme, and both ECW and the WWEhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2.gif Universe quickly took notice of his sheer charisma and impressive combination of strength, ability, physique, acumen and style. It is no wonder that a Superstar with so much going for him walks with such a swagger in his step.

Swagger describes himself as "The All-American American," the best of the best, and the highest of the high. He doesn’t think he’s the best, he knows it. And for him, it is not a question of what the WWEhttp://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/2.gif Universe can expect from him, but what little they can not.

As part of a tri-branded trade, "The All-American American" will be taking his swagger to Monday nights where he will have a new mountain to climb. All we know is that with all Swagger’s natural talent, it’s only a matter of time before he finds himself on top of that peak.
