Jack Swagger’s request to be removed from the WWE roster has finally been granted.
The former Heavyweight Champion revealed that he had asked the WWE brass to be released from his contract at the beginning of the month on Chael Sonnen’s Beyond the Fight Podcast. Earlier today, WWE.com sent out the following statement:
WWE has come to terms on the release of Jack Swagger. WWE wishes Swagger the best in all his future endeavors.
Short and sweet. Although Swagger had jumped to gun to book some independent dates as soon as this past weekend, he will be held to the standard 90-day no compete clause enforced by WWE.
