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.

According to rumors, there have been no timetable set backstage by WWE for the return of Zeb Colter. While officials still view him as a valuable asset for the company, there is no sense of urgency in bringing him back, especially since there are no plans for pushing Jack Swagger from now until Wrestlemania. Since that is the case, there is a good chance that they might hold off the well spoken manager until that point in time.

Since WWE is pushing him back down the ladder and making him a filler wrestler, there are those that are naturally concerned about the job security of Jack Swagger. As of right now, he appears to be safe. Even with his previous legal issues, he still has some supporters backstage. Plus, the former world heavyweight champion still has enough name value that he could be of some assistance to TNA, who has started signing wrestlers again.

When Jack Swagger was given a slight push by WWE earlier in the month, there were some fans who were under the impression that he was going to be moving back up the ladder again. However, as reports had stated, the former world heavyweight champion was simply used to elevate Rusev in a stall feud. Swagger is moving back down the ladder now, as evident by the fact that he put over Luke Harper in a match on Monday Night Raw.
