Doesn't mean they couldn't add something to the table. Bret clearly did. I see no reason why Swagger couldn't develop into a credible heel main eventer once again. Only to remain at that level on this go around.
And the only thing Swagger brings to the table is sometimes good, not great matches (just going on his recent work) - and that's all. He's never going to have any memorable promos because he sucks terribly on the mic, and Zeb Colter is handling everything
from a character perspective atm for him.
From what I've read on here, the general consensus on Swagger atm is: that new character is good, the new theme is good, his new manager Zeb is great, but Swagger is just Swagger, that goofy looking guy who can't cut a promo to save his life and was jobbed out for two years so it brings his credibility into question that now he's suddenly in a World Title match at WrestleMania after suddenly returning. They're building him up again, but they need to do a lot more. Why is the contender for the World Title beating guys like Zack Ryder, when a guy like Mark Henry is going over guys like Randy Orton when he doesn't have a World Title match?
And as far as all this Del Rio talk goes, I'm still not a fan of him, but I can admit he's more tolerable as a face now and his matches are more interesting due to him implementing new moves into his matches. He's much more natural as a face and it shows. But I don't like that he's only pushed for being Mexican and the fact that he's made Ziggler tap out like three times in two weeks, that doesn't make your future World Champion look good at all, but that's more WWE's crappy booking fault.
