Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger was granted his release from WWE earlier this year, and during his appearance on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling podcast, he explained why he decided to leave the company.
“After ten years with [WWE], I needed a change, and like I said earlier, I need to journey out and become the best professional wrestler I can, but also I needed a change to make them miss me and want me back. I need to make them want me and the main thing is they were not growing my brand anymore. Bottom line.
“It happens and you can get angry about it, but it is all business and it is all dollars. I was angry for a long time, but once this all came down and I looked at it as a business decision so I understood their side, understood my side and we left on good terms and it is just something we had to do. I look forward to getting out there and showing everyone ALL of the Jack Swagger brand not just what they wanted to show you guys.”
