Jack Swagger was interviewed by DC101’s Mike Jones. Swagger was asked about Vince McMahon’s comments last night about the locker room not being as ambitions as the locker room from the Attitude era.
Swagger said, “This is an environment where literally hundreds of thousands of people want to be on this roster, and there’s what, 75 of us on top? To get here you have to be very ambitious but to stay here you need even more. It takes a lot of drive and a lot of hard work. I can only speak for myself that I have gotten hungrier. As far as the rest of the locker room, you know, it’s tough but you gotta see the finish line and sometimes that’s hard to do.”
NXT talent and their mentality: “I know they’re training hard, otherwise they wouldn’t be there. They have a sign on the wall that says ‘When one comes in, one has to go out.’ It’s very cutthroat down there and I know that they wouldn’t be there unless they wanted it.”
On feuding with Rusev again: “We had a very memorable matchup back in the summer, finishing up at Summerslam. And then last week he tried to go after Slaughter, now week he got Zeb. It’s time to stop all the jokes, stop all the talking and get down to who is tougher, and I got a feeling America will come out on top.”
