Saturday shall be another delightful evening as WWE Live comes to Fairfax at The Patriot Center. Who better to talk to, when coming there, than the Real American Jack Swagger. Exactly!
Jack and I had a great chat about motivation in the locker room among the WWE Superstars, about how he crushed The Miz in fantasy football and how into it the guys are and a recent inappropriate shouting of "We The People"!
On Vince McMahon's comments about locker room ambition: "This is an environment where literally hundreds of thousands of people want to be on this roster, and there's what, 75 of us on top? To get here you have to be very ambitious but to stay here you need even more. It takes a lot of drive and a lot of hard work. I can only speak for myself that I have gotten hungrier. As far as the rest of the locker room, you know, it's tough but you gotta see the finish line and sometimes that's hard to do."
On NXT guys and girls with their mentality: "I know they're training hard, otherwise they wouldn't be there. They have a sign on the wall that says 'When one comes in, one has to go out.' It's very cutthroat down there and I know that they wouldn't be there unless they wanted it."
On fighting with Rusev again: "We had a very memorable matchup back in the summer, finishing up at Summerslam. And then last week he tried to go after Slaughter, now week he got Zeb. It's time to stop all the jokes, stop all the talking and get down to who is tougher, and I got a feeling America will come out on top."
