Over the past few months, numerous WWE superstars have threatened to abandon the company. The birth of All Elite Wrestling can create great changes in the future, especially if Dean Ambrose were to agree to join the new federation.
Speaking on Pro Wrestling 24/7, former WWE superstar Jack Swagger commented on WWE’s current talent problems: “No it’s not a shock, they know exactly how they treat their talent. They know the contracts that they have us sign and they know exactly why we’re unhappy with the way they treat us.
So it’s not a shock to me. I’m very thankful looking back on it now that I was able to leave when I did. I’m very thankful for my 12 years there because it allowed me to do so much. It allows me to do so much now because of that background, that notch on my resume that I have.
But at the same time there’s a lot of unhappy people there and it’s not just because of the politics. It’s because you’re traveling 200 days a year, sometimes you’re only home thirty-six hours a week, away from your family."
During his time with WWE, Swagger became a two-time world champion, having held the WWE's World Heavyweight Championship and the ECW Championship once each. He left the company in 2017 after he decided to pursue a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career.
