Backstage Talk on Swagger & WM 29, Rhodes Volunteers for Segment

- We noted earlier that Cody Rhodes participated in a post-RAW segment with The Rock in Lafayette earlier this week after the show went off the air. Cody actually volunteered for the segment and pitched the idea of him going out and taking a People's Elbow and Rock Bottom.

- WWE sources note that Jack Swagger was scheduled to win the World Heavyweight Title from Alberto Del Rio at WrestleMania 29. No word yet on what his arrest means for booking plans but WWE creative was working late on Wednesday night to come up with ideas, which doesn't sound good for Swagger and Zeb Colter.

There's talk that if WWE officials saw fit to change the direction of the match, then Dolph Ziggler would most likely get the WrestleMania match with Del Rio.

If Swagger ends up suspended and loses the WrestleMania match, the arrest altogether would cost him upwards of $250,000.

"WWE sources" who are they? Swaggs was supposed to win? who said that...easy fix, do a 18 seconds replay like last year with rio getting a quick roll up. Swaggs gets mad and hits rio with a chair, ziggs chases in...if they want the title off rio so bad

Not even factoring in how much he would lose on future main event spots, title runs, ect. Pure speculation at its best to me. Although if this little fiasco means seeing Dolph cash in and win at Wrestlemania, I couldnt be happier for Swagger bein a stoner.
