Jack Swagger says his dream match would be against Kurt Angle

Jack Swagger sent out a tweet earlier this week, teasing at the prospect that he was leaving the WWE.

Swagger has been part of the company since 2006 when he had a successful tryout with Deep South Wrestling, one of WWE's former developmental territories. He then spent time in Ohio Valley Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling, before making his debut on the main roster in the ECW brand.

He then went on pursuits for the World Heavyweight Championship, before dwindling down to mid card status, to then becoming a now and then jobber, to eventually not being used at all, which is a real shame because he has the talent.

Unfortunately, this is just the harsh reality when it comes to the WWE, as they're starting to invest more and more into talent from their NXT developmental division like Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, meaning people like Swagger struggle to find a place on the card.

In a recent interview with TheSportBible.com while the WWE was in the United Kingdom on their European tour - according to Wrestling Inc - The All-American American revealed which superstar he would like to have a match with that he hasn't worked with as of yet. His answer was a WWE legend, Kurt Angle.

He said: "I recently met Kurt Angle. We were in Pittsburgh and I was working out with R-Truth and Kurt was in the same gym. So Truth knows him and he told him I was here and wanted to meet him. It was just before he did the match at that event with Mysterio with all the boxing and MMA fights on the card (laughs).

"When I first started watching wrestling he was the guy I watched 'cos he was an amateur and an Olympian and that's why I watch wrestling, for the technical aspect so yeah, I'd choose Kurt Angle."

Whether or not this truly is the end for Swagger in the WWE remains to be seen, but if he was to stay around for a little while longer, he would love to have the company also sign back up The Olympic Gold Medalist so his dream match wish could be fulfilled.

It would be tough for him to negotiate that match to take place, as he isn't held in high regard by WWE creative anymore. His last main roster feud was with Alberto Del Rio for the United States Championship. They had a Chairs match at TLC, which ended as Del Rio as the victor.

He has since been involved in the Royal Rumble and the Andre the Giant Battle Royal at WrestleMania 32 but did not play a significant role in either match. Therefore, you can see why he might be leaving the WWE soon, so his dream match against Kurt Angle might just have to remain as a fantasy.
