Hey there everyone hope the weekend is treating you all well... so now on to the show. With the recent arrest of jack swagger (#1 contender WHC) there are now many things up in the air as to how the E will go about fixing the situation. Also this is not the first time an incident like this has occurred will the E lean from there mistakes or air on the side of business?
OK so MR. Swagger was pulled over for speeding .... then was found to be under the influence of a smoking substance in which may i remind you he was leaving the smackdown taping. WHAT WAS HE DOING SMOKING RIGHT AFTER A TAPING OF THE SHOW? i do understand its his own personal choice i am not here to judge. as it is his first violation of the wellness policy anything could happen.It has also been reported that they leaked the original plans of him winning the belt from Berty at WM... not a good sign he has been pulled from a few shows as well. The E has only issued one statement about this saying that he is responsible for his own actions (OUCH) what no support? Really...
I would like to say that he is not the first superstar to have done this... R truth, Evan Bourne, Randy Orton and Rey Mysterio have all been suspended or disciplined in some form for a mistake they made on there own time. lets take a look at the outcomes of the punishments. Randy got a 60 suspension on his 2nd violation (Smoking) Rey also received the same 60/2nd. now Evan received the 60/2nd on a synthetic smoking charge but he was the tag team champion with Kofi Kingston at the time (AIRBOOM) so they mad him drop the belts after they wouldn't let him wrestle for weeks. Ok kinda not fair to Kingston but the kicker was the other party that was also caught with bourne. R- truth who was tag teaming with the miz at the time ( awesome truth)
Awesome truth was set to square off with the rock and john cena for the rocks comeback match at survivor series 2011. The match happened as the rock got the win shocker huh no......anyways the next night we find out the truth was suspended for testing positive 30 day / 1st violation they wrote him off TV by miz attacking him on the ramp for losing the match . now if the E really didn't play favorites and followed the policy truth should have been suspended the same day with evan bourne but because of the high profile match they looked the other way ... totally not fair to the other talent who by there own fault mess up stilll should all get the same treatment.No one should be able to escape from punishment not even the main eventer's period....
Now i have a feeling that the E will come down hard on swaggs due to the fact that wrestlemania is so high profile and they trusted him to be the #1 contender. They are only human understandable but whats really good for business. They might have a different position on this now that bruno sanmmartino is being inducted and given his views on drug policies it coould be a deciding factor? Now ii do hope they do whats right wihthout ruining a good career or a personal life of an employee. THEY SHOULD ALWAYS TREAT EACH CASE THE SAME NO MATTER IF YOU ARE THE CHAMPION OR THE JOBBER WHO ONLY WRESTLES TWICE A MONTH
WHAT DO YOU THINK SHOULD HAPPEN OR WHAT THEY WILL DO ?
