In case you have been living underneath a rock, Jack Swagger has been severely dropped down the ladder in WWE. To give you an idea of how bad things are for his character right now, the former world heavyweight champion has not been given a televised victory on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since the start of 2015. Based on how things are going, that streak might last all year.

In order to push him higher up the ladder, WWE will eventually be required to take the United States Heavyweight Championship off of Rusev. However, people backstage do not want to see John Cena picking up the strap because it would seem like a demotion for his character. An idea being tossed around backstage is to have Cena helping another wrestler, such as Jack Swagger or Curtis Axel, win the belt from the Russian sympathizer.
