Jack Swagger Accuses WWE of Squeeze Out Indie Companies

[adace-ad id="652493"]

Jack Swagger posted two videos to Twitter and accused WWE of trying to push around the indie promotions. He asked fans to “stand up” for the indies and try to help the November 28th Wrestling Revolver show outdraw the NXT show the night before.

“Hello everyone, I know I am new to the independent scene but I have seen a new trend arising and I wanted to speak on it. Whenever bigger promotions run their big shows, especially around the holidays, WWE likes to come into the same market and run a show at the same time. This has now happened with WrestleCade in November. Smackdown is now running the same day and is calling their show Starrcade. This is happening November 28th for The Wrestling Revolver’s Tales From The Ring. NXT is now running the night before. Coincidence? Maybe. They do book their shows months and months ahead of time. But What is even more possible is WWE saw the card for The Wrestling Revolver and said, “Oh sh*t! That’s a great roster! This is going to be a big show! Indies are hot! We should get some of that! We should try and sign all the indie talent to our brand! So they can’t compete with us!” I am not here to talk sh*t but I’m sorry I am taking this personally. To me this is a slap in the face. Typical WWE saying they are a bigger company and they can come into your market and push you around and run a show whenever they like. You want to compete? Fine. Real wrestling fans, indie fans, it is time to stand up for independent wrestling. On November 28th come to The Wrestling Revolver and help us outdraw the NXT show. Help Revolver and all the other promotions in the same situation. Stand up for the indies!”
