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.

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.
