X-Pac opens today’s show by commenting on the news that Jack Swagger has signed a multi-fight contract with Bellator MMA. X-Pac says that Swagger is a legitimate bad ass, and he thinks this is a better signing for Bellator than Ryback would have been, just based on the fact that Swagger was a star in the collegiate wrestling scene.
X-Pac mentions that according to reports, Neville might not be finished with WWE after all. Apparently Neville was frustrated with WWE denying his requests to work on side projects so he walked out. X-Pac says that Neville has to make a tough call now because money isn’t everything, and your happiness and sanity is more important. The door might be open for Neville to return to WWE but he obviously hasn’t been happy there for a while, so this is a big decision for him.
X-Pac believes that Jinder Mahal dropping the WWE Title to A.J. Styles on Smackdown Live last week has made a big difference for the live events in India. X-Pac thought that Mahal would be chasing the WWE Title in India, battling A.J. Styles at the live events. That isn’t the case but WWE still has to have him in a high profile match, so competing against Triple H makes sense.
