WWE Issues Statement on Jack Swagger’s Contractual Status

Jack Swagger made news on Wednesday when he announced on Chael Sonnen’s podcast that he had asked for his release from WWE.  On Friday, WWE issued a statement to ProWrestling.net to clarify Swagger’s status with the company.

“Jack Swagger has not been granted a release from his WWE contract. When he is granted his release, Jack Swagger will remain under exclusive contract to WWE for 90 days and will be compensated accordingly during that period.”

Swagger has been advertised for advertised independent dates as soon as next weekend, making an appearance for an independent promotion in the UK.  There is no word as of this writing as to how this statement may change those appearances.
