Former WWE Superstar Jake Hager (Jack Swagger) recently conducted his latest interview with The New York Post in order to promote his first professional Mixed Martial Arts fight. This is just one of many interviews he has been doing with various media outlets to promote his fight.
Hager has signed a contract with Bellator MMA and will make his debut when he takes on J.W. Kiser at the upcoming Bellator 214 event.
In this interview, he spoke about AEW and how the launch of the promotion has gone thus far. The former WWE star also hinted at potentially working with Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks, who are part of the All Elite Wrestling management.
“Absolutely, you see what guys like Cody Rhodes, guys like The Young Bucks have done. Guys like Kenny Omega, who is expected to sign with them. They bring in Chris Jericho and he’s like the world, you know, universal greatest of all time. It’s so cool to see the momentum. Honestly, I feel like it started a couple of years ago with Drew McIntyre doing such a good job on the independent scene and really showing, at least a lot of the wrestlers in WWE, that there is life outside of the WWE and that the independent scene is a viable place to make consistent money where you can provide for you family. I absolutely would love to work with Cody and the Bucks. I invited them to the Bellator fight. So we will have to see if they show up.”
