Swagger has only been back with WWE for a few weeks, after being on injured reserve. He won the Elimination Chamber match at Sunday's pay-per-view and was placed in a position to challenge for Alberto Del Rio's World championship at WrestleMania 29.
Zeb Colter has been acting as Swagger's manager, spewing venom about protecting the American border from immigrants, in part to build towards a major bout with Del Rio of Mexico.
