Jack Swagger has been receiving massive praise and rave reviews from the WWE hierarchy, due to his recent work with Rusev, reports dailywrestlingnews.com.
The "Real American" has turned babyface for the first time in his career, and appears to relishing the chance to have the fans cheer him for a change, with his recent work brining loud pops from the audience.
Zeb Colter has had a massive hand in this, having acted as Swaggers mouth piece for the best part of 18 months, and it seems that the two of them are well over with the crowd.
The "WE. THE. PEOPLE." chant has always roused the live crowd into participating, but with the Swagger/Colter pairing being newly turned face - the audience are truly buying into it.
Their feud with the "Ravishing Russian" Lana, and the "Bulgarian Brute" Rusev, was set to hit its peak at the Battleground PPV on Sunday. But the WWE are having second thoughts on this, and it is looking increasingly likely that we will see the pair go at it all summer, with the pay-off match at SummerSlam.
To their credit Lana and Rusev having been getting massive heat from audience, with Lana's anti-American schtick being nothing new, but an effective way of getting both of them over with the crowds.
The "Détente" between Colter and Lana on Monday Night RAW was an entertaining piece of TV, with the audience drowning at an increasingly frustrated Lana, whilst widely backing 'Uncle Zeb'. Swagger received a massive pop when he countered Rusev's always impressive super-kick, into the 'Patriot Lock', going into Sunday both of them are being portrayed as equals.
This isn't the first time that WWE officials have wanted to get behind Jack Swagger. He had a monster push on his début, that ended in a 'Money in the Bank' win at WrestleMania, but his title reign proved anything but memorable.
Only last year he was repackaged, with Zeb Colter by his side, and come back to win the Elimination Chamber.
However, he was arrested not soon after for possession of marijuana, the arrest cost him his headlining slot at WrestleMania 29 according to some WWE higher ups.
Zeb Colter deserves a push, just as much as Swagger, with his work since joining the WWE being nothing short of stellar. He managed to get Cesaro over massively with the WWE Universe, and is now doing the same for Jack Swagger, is it time he gets to mix with the Authority?
