After his tenure in the World Wrestling Entertainment, Jack Swagger spent time wrestling abroad. As part of the CWFH launch on CW, new talents were introduced to the Hollywood audience, most notably Alberto El Patron and Jack Swagger Swagger squared off with resident big man, Eric Watts. Swagger defeated Watts in his first match in Hollywood. Although he was expected to return, no announcement had been made about his return to Hollywood.
However, earlier today while appearing on the MMA Hour, he (real name Jack Hagger) announced that he signed a deal with Bellator MMA and will fight in the Heavyweight Division in 2018. Bellator is also home to Impact’s Bobby Lashley who spends time in both the world of wrestling and mma.
