Jack Swagger Discusses His Ring Name and Personality

Nick Paglino

Slam Wrestling recently conducted an interview with former ECW Champion Jack Swagger. Below are some highlights:

-On who came up with his ring name: "WWE Creative came up with the name, it’s definitely awesome. My late grandfather’s name was Jack. It’s funny, when my old college buddies from the (Oklahoma Sooners) football team heard the name, they were like: ‘Yep, that’s him, that’s the perfect name.’ What I do, the smiling, that’s me. And the cockiness, the sarcasm … I’m sarcastic (in real life), I like to mess with people. And calling myself the All-American American, that just pisses everybody off."
