WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross had former WWE star turned Bellator MMA fighter Jake Hager, better known as Jack Swagger, on his Jim Ross Report podcast in order to promote his fight at Bellator 214, which marked his pro-MMA debut.
Since AEW (All Elite Wrestling) was launched earlier this month, various talents have been speculated as possibilities of heading to the new promotion. That includes Swagger.
Interesting enough, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion revealed in this interview that he has spoken with Cody Rhodes briefly about potentially joining AEW in the future.
“I’ve kind of had my nose in training camp since September, so I haven’t talked with them about it too much, but here and there, I will talk with Cody and you can’t help but bring it up. I always think back to what [Chris] Jericho and Kenny Omega did for New Japan [Pro-Wrestling] last year for Wrestle Kingdom. I really feel like they worked everybody, that angle and it was really refreshing to see… it was 2018 at the time, but to see that in pro wrestling where people can still get hooked, still believe it.” Hager said, “I expect nothing but more of that and great matches from these guys.”
