It was announced on Chael Sonnen’s podcast yesterday that Jack Swagger has requested his release from WWE. It was later revealed that while he has asked for his release, he is still with the company. Swagger noted on Sonnen’s podcast that his release is “an ongoing process right now.”
Bryan Alvarez mentioned on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Live that if Swagger is granted his release from WWE, the company will announce it on Friday. Historically WWE announces departures on Fridays, so expect an announcement then.
As of this writing, Swagger’s profile is still on the WWE website.
