The Huffington Post UK recently featured a Jack Swagger interview in promotion for WWE's UK tour. Swagger discusses a variety of things, including which WWE Hall of Famer or legend he would like to face, the fact that there's never been a British WWE World Champion, NXT and more.
Here are some of the highlights:
WWE has started its UK tour, what for you is special about the UK shows?
I always love coming over to the UK. I'm from a really small town and so getting to come over the big pond and to see how WWE transcends different cultures and countries is amazing. For me, to see how far wrestling really goes and how far it reaches is awesome. My favourite part though is seeing our fans and how excited they are to have us over here.
We have home-grown Divas, US and Intercontinental Champions but we've never had a British WWE champion nor a PPV in some time – aren't they overdue?
Absolutely. Being a Real American I can admit that the British talent roster is amazing. It keeps getting deeper and deeper every year and I think we have more UK superstars on our roster than ever before. I think it's only a matter of time before there's a British WWE champion
That's good to hear! Do you have any 'rib' stories you would like to share our readers!"
Well, I've had a lot played on me and I've done some of my own. I don't know if I can talk about any of them though as I might be letting the cat out of the bag…what I can tell you is that (fellow former tag-team partner) Cesaro and (current manager) Zeb would always double-team me when we were riding in the car. I think they were intimidated by me though, so it's no wonder they had to team up…
Hulk Hogan is in the UK for your Smackdown television taping at the London O2 arena, which WWE Hall of Famer or legend would you like to face and why?
That's a good question. I have always been a fan of Scott Hall (Razor Ramon). He's always been one of my favourites and he has one thing that you just don't get on TV anymore… and that's chest hair! I think we need tons and tons more chest hair. I can't grow any so don't expect it from me. But seriously, I think a Scott Hall/Razor Ramon and Jack Swagger would have an unbelievable match.
