Jack Swagger released by WWEBy Joseph Currier | @josephcurrier | Mar 13, 2017 11:29 am
Jack Swagger is officially done with WWE.
After a couple of weeks where his status was up in the air, WWE announced on Monday afternoon that Swagger had been released by the company.
Their statement: "WWE has come to terms on the release of Jack Swagger as of today, March 13, 2017. WWE wishes Swagger the best in all his future endeavors"
Swagger initially appeared on the "Beyond the Fight" podcast with Chael Sonnen at the beginning of this month to reveal that he had requested to leave WWE. But the company clarified that Swagger had not yet been released when he started to take outside bookings, including a match against Alberto Del Rio for WAW in the United Kingdom.
When noting that Swagger hadn't yet been granted his release then, WWE said that Swagger would have a 90-day non-compete clause once he officially left the company where he would get his downside guarantee and wouldn't be able to wrestle for other promotions during that period.
