Chuck Carroll of The Turnbuckle Weekly interviewed WWE star Jack Swagger ahead of tonight’s Raw in Atlanta.
It is up on the CBS Atlanta (CW69 TV / 92.9 The Game) website at this link.
Swagger said The Rock’s return last week in Brooklyn was a closely guarded secret and that many of the wrestlers in the locker room didn’t even know he was going to be there.
Carroll was told by Washington Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams that Ross would be more fired up than anyone for game day. Though far shorter and inferior in size, Williams said Ross would essentially cut a promo to pump him up, telling him he was a beast and how the Sooners were going to open a can of whoop ass.
The only thing is, Ross was so enthusiastic that it caused Williams to pump the brakes a little bit. Like, calm down man!
Swagger laughed when I relayed that story and said he hadn’t seen anything quite like that, but confirmed Ross, without fail, is on the sideline every week wearing his back hat.
The following are several Swagger quotes:
