Lucha Underground Spoilers: Former WWE Superstar debuts for Lucha Underground
This is a great get for Lucha Underground here.
What's the story?
Ex-World Heavyweight Champion for the WWE, Jack Swagger, now known as Jake Hager, has reportedly signed a deal with Lucha Underground. Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet reports that Swagger was present at the recent taping and possibly worked a dark match.
In case you didn't know...
Lucha Underground has just begun tapings for their fourth season and are looking to build on the excellent three seasons they have already produced by bringing in new talent to replace some of the departing ones, Ricochet being a notable name to leave the company at the end of season three.
The heart of the matter
Pro Wrestling Sheet have reported that their sources have indicated that Jack Swagger has agreed to join the show, despite recently signing with Bellator as well. They would go on to indicate that Swagger wrestled in a match on Saturday, although it was possible a dark match.
Sources tell us recent Bellator signee Jack Swagger has agreed to appear on the show in season four and he kicked things off with what may have been a dark match on Saturday.
The wrestlers at the taping clearly weren’t trying to keep it a secret though, as Swagger made an appearance in a video posted on social media with some of the roster at the new temple.
Here's the video that Ryan is referring to, it clearly shows Swagger along with some of Lucha Undergrounds more recognisable faces like Johnny Mundo (John Morrison) and Matanza (Jeff Cobb)
It's unclear what Swagger's role will be in Lucha Underground but it's good to see him get another fairly big wrestling break after his 'We The People' gimmick in WWE got over and then he was misused.
Ryan has posted another Lucha Undergrounds spoilers thread detailing some of the new additions to the cast for this season, as well as some of the goings on in their first taping, if you'd like to know more check that out here.
