WWE Superstar Jack Swagger was recently interviewed by The Oklahoman about his time wrestling at The University of Oklahoma. He also commented on signing with WWE and how he took a "different path" before being called up to the main roster:
"I had met Jim Ross and Jerry Brisco before I was even in college and they always told me to get your degree first and then we'll give you a shot if you want to come try your hand with the WWE," Swagger said. "I graduated in May 2006, flew out to Atlanta for a week to tryout, and by July 2006 I was signed and training in Atlanta. I took a little bit different path than most WWE superstars have taken. I'm one of the few superstars who have gone through all three of the developmental camps."
