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.

Reports recently surfaced that Jack Swagger had deleted his social media account, which quickly led to the internet wrestling community to speculate that he could be upset with his status within WWE.

Some bad news if you're hoping to see Zeb Colter back on television. The belief right now is that his return is unlikely to happen because WWE simply has no desires to put a lot of focus on Jack Swagger. He is now considered someone that is lost in the shuffle. Despite being a former world heavyweight champion, his role nowadays will be that of a filler. Job security for Swagger is said to be pretty low, as management feel he is replaceable.

When they say that WWE contacts everyone to chip in and help during Wrestlemania week, they mean everyone. Tamina Snuka has resurfaced this week. She did a promotional appearance at the San Francisco 49ers museum with Goldust, Jack Swagger and Lilian Garcia. For those that are not aware, Tamina has been on the sidelines for the last several months because she tore her ACL. He return to television is expected soon.

Last week, Jack Swagger was sent over to England to do a promotional tour for WWE. While there, he revealed something rather interesting in an interview.

In case you have not noticed, Zeb Colter has been absent from Monday Night Raw and Smackdown for quite some time now. WWE did an injury angle backstage to explain his absence. At the time, no one was sure of when he would be making his return. Word is now spreading that we could see him making a comeback at Wrestlemania. He would accompany Jack Swagger to the ring for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.

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.

Do not expect to see much of Jack Swagger on television or live events this week. That is because WWE is sending him over to London to do some promotional work for the company. A tour is taking place next month with a dozen shows already scheduled. Swagger will do various media appearances to hype up the fans. Management usually sends guys who are not pivotal to their television stories on these promotional tours.

With a lot of spots being filled at Wrestlemania, there are those wondering where Jack Swagger will end up. Since he has not worked a full fledged feud lately, it is very unlikely that the former world heavyweight champion is going to be given a straight up singles match on the pay per view. WWE needs bodies to fill up the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal, so that is the most likely landing spot for Swagger. Very unlikely to win the match.

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.
