This might be a little nitpicky but have you noticed that Zeb Colter just stands there like an idiot whenever Jack Swagger gets beat up by Rusev? Last night, Swagger gets pounded with a FLAG and all Zeb does is WATCH?!? I mean, you're Dutch F'ing Mantel with a flag of your own in your hands. What would YOU do? At the very least, he should have tried to attack Rusev only to get the camel clutch. He could take next week off to heal and let Swagger cut a promo of his own to put himself over for SummerSlam. But surely the people who write this stuff don't need any ideas from social media. 🙂
Dude, Dutch Mantel is SHOT from years of working hurt. There's no way he's cleared to have anyone even lay a hand on him without potentially causing him serious injury by accident. I would not want some green rookie like Rusev pulling a Droz on the poor guy. Although of greater concern is what they do with him as a babyface manager when this Evil Russian storyline is finished, because there's only so many foreign nationals that Swagger can run through as a heroic patriot. The character really only works if he's either the ironic Tea-Partyesque "patriot" or a real American hero. Having him be a generic babyface manager is a waste of everyone. That's why I think they might go with the heel turn where Zeb goes Russian and aligns with Rusev to face off against the reunited Real Americans after the current feud finishes up.
Either way, I'm positive they almost zero plans for Swagger or Cesaro at this point anyway.
