Jack Swagger recently stated he asked for his release from WWE.
Many sites were reporting that Swagger has since been granted his release. WWE sent a statement to numerous outlets denying a release has been granted, “Jack Swagger has not been granted a release from his WWE contract. When he is granted his release, Jack Swagger will remain under exclusive contract to WWE for 90 days and will be compensated accordingly during that period.”
While this means Swagger is currently under contract, the inclusion of “when” makes it sound as if WWE believes it is an inevitability.
