According to PWInsider, there was a lot of interest in bringing in former WWE Superstar Jack Swagger into the company when Jeff Jarrett and Dutch Mantel were heading the creative for Impact Wrestling. Mantell even mentioned during a conference call for Global Force Wrestling back in July that Swagger may pop up in GFW.
Swagger mentioned to WrestleZone earlier this year that he would have enjoyed working with Dutch Mantell again.
“It would be awesome to work with Dirty Dutch Mantell again, good friend of mine. So we’ll just have to see. I’m in the process of lining up a calendar, and getting a lot of shows, I think I’m booked for the summer with shows. So I’m gonna be anywhere, you can see me in Australia, on Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore tour.”
It’s almost safe to say that those plans are no longer on the table, as Jarrett and Mantel are no longer head of creative for the company. If he was to appear on Impact television, it wouldn’t be until Bound for Glory or after, as the company has already taped all the television up until that date.
If we hear anything new regarding his status, we will keep you posted.
