Re: After the Del Rio feud what happens to Swagger?
I always assumed, even before the DUI that once Del Rio beat him, he'd get buried again. I don't see anything else. His whole gimmick is GET LOST MEXICANS DUUUURRRRRR. There aren't a whole lot of Mexicans on the roster for him to feud with, and the Del Rio feud is absolutely BOMBING. If they just have him take on other random immigrants like Sheamus, it's going to look stupid because while he's said he hates all immigrants coming in and taking our jobs (cue South Park redneck), which is just a safe way for WWE to do this Mexican angle and go "look, he's not racist, he hates everyone!", it's clearly designed SPECIFICALLY for the Latino audience. There's no political movement targeting any other immigrants, which makes the whole thing pointless.
I don't see a lot after this for him. Unless they're stupid enough to have him win, then they can keep it going with Del Rio for another 3 or 4 months, but even then it has to end soon.
