The man can deliver in the ring, no doubt about that, just need to find what really works for him, Hell why not give him a manager? The manager doesn't have to talk all the time for him, just key points, his first match with Ryback was not bad, the second one sucked but in the first one it seemed like he could hang with him at least for 2 minutes before they decided Ryback go all t-1000 over Swagger.
So maybe at some point he will go back tot he title scene but it is going to e a good couple of years before he can even get close.
