Default Swagger vs Mahal?

I know this sounds a bit random, but it just occurred to me that the WWE could have mildly controversial feud between the two men. Perhaps the next time the WWE honors the troops, or the next "American War Holiday", "D-Day" for example all the wrestlers come out, and salute the flag. The camera does its usual thing by spanning over the crowd, and everyone standing on their feet proud to be an American. Swagger is staring dead at Mahal who still has his "turban" on.

Swagger makes a big deal about this on "tout", and gets some fans riled up. He then moves on to twitter, and keeps the "angle" going making it seem a bit legit as if he is offended personally. The Miz of all people takes notice of this on his next MizTv special, and wants Mahal to respond to Swagger's remarks with, or without "The Band". Mahal agrees via "tout" to be on MizTv. Mahal tells The Band to come along with him, and they do. Slater says that Mahal need not to worry, because he is American, and these idiots will be forced to believe him.

All three men come out, and Miz awaits. First, I would have Mahal just come out, and apologize right away to that he meant no harm, and that part of his religion is to wear this Turban. Slater cuts him off, and says that this is American, and we honor "freedom of religion". Slater says that Swagger needs to give up wrestling, and go run for Mayor in Oklahoma. Slater says this is professional wrestling, and we don't have time for politics. At this point this is when Slater starts the nickname "Uncle Sam" in reference to Jack Swagger.

Mahal takes the mic back from Slater, and tells the fans all over the world that he is not here to offend, and that if this were offensive towards Jack he will apologize to him right now in this very ring. Unfamiliar music hits, and out comes Jack Swagger. He tells Mahal that he realizes that he didn't call him out here to apologize, and that this is all a set up. Mahal gets serious, and tells Swagger that he will have his men leave the ring. Both men exit the ring, and stand ringside. Swagger walks down patiently. At this point both men are in the ring, and Miz tells Mahal that he now has to apologize. Mahal puts his hand out, and shakes his head while apologizing to him.

Boom Kane's music hits, and he along with Daniel Bryan are on the Titantron. The fans immediately start chanting "Hug it out" over, and over. Then, they both actually "hug it out". However, Kane, and Bryan start arguing with everyone's attention on them, and that's where Mahal just flattens Swagger with a short are clothesline. Crowd erupts in boo's and the titan tron goes off with all three men beating the living shit out of Jack Swagger. The Miz just for the hell of it gets a few kicks himself. The whole point of the idea here is to turn Swagger face, while the other three men try to paint the picture that Jack Swagger is just some "dork" who is really, really in to America, dead Presidents and Washington DC.

I would even have the WWE do a poll. Did Jack Swagger over react over Mahal not taking off his Turban? I would bet most of the WWE Universe would probably answer no, and support Jack Swagger. Swagger would says that part of being American is about having tolerance, and respect. Jack says where is Mahal's tolerance, and respect? Jack says that it wasn't asking much for Jinder to take 3 minutes of his time to honor the great country in which he makes a living in. People would support this because it's rational, and not prejudice sounding. Swagger says when he performs in places like Egypt, he respects their traditions, and in places like Japan you respect their wishes. It's no different here, and we honor all religious customs to boot. The WWE could gain some attention with an angle like this.

I don't think the current writers have enough subtlety to not turn this into a hot damn racist mess. They could start out with all the best intentions in the world, and it would still turn into another gross USA vs. the World (even the bits that aren't our enemies) mess. And I don't trust the WWE staff to start out from a non-racist place of intent to begin with.

Why would this be a feud? The guy is playing an Indian from the country India who last time I checked has never had a conflict with the USA. You seem to be trying to somehow link the turban exclusively to Islam yet it is also worn by Sikhs & Hindu's who again have absolutely nothing to do with any war against the USA.

How about people stop linking Asians to terrorism for a change? Do you think all non whites now link white people to terrorism after the Irish/Spanish/Japan/Norway attacks?

This USA vs the world stuff is making other countries dislike America (France/Britain/Germany etc) & its almost starting to make the USA the bad guy. Silly stuff.

I think this idea is a bit silly- India has normally been an ally of the USA in past wars but I think the potential for a feud between the 2 is there with Swagger turning face off it. Maybe have Mahal step up his hatred of America, win the US title and then have Swagger return from an absence to feud with him- proudly defending America etc etc. Sure it is a bit cliched but it can't be any worse than other things they might have planned and Swagger desperately needs to try being a face because he just isn't intimidating enough to be a heel.

I think Swagger should lead a legitimate wrestling stable against the Rock Band stable of Heath Slater. Swagger and 2 other forgotten jobbers.

It would be easy to write up stupid/silly storylines that don't make any difference in the long run, plus it'll give them a chance to be a little bit better known. the worse thing that could happen would they go super over and become the tag team champions right?

Swagger is jobber. I don't care about him at all. I don't like Mahal either, but he has potential to be liked by me.

Where exactly did the OP mention terrorism??? You seem to have jumped to that conclusion pretty quickly
