WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross interviewed Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter

WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross returned to SmackDown, looking to get to the heart of the controversy involving Jack Swagger — who Good Ol’ J.R. first brought to WWE many years before — and Zeb Colter.

The pair granted J.R. the exclusive interview, feeling he was a “real American” and that, as a result, they would be treated better than they felt they had been on Monday’s edition of “Miz TV.”

When J.R. inquired about what happened to Swagger during his three-month absence from WWE, Colter answered for his compatriot, saying he opened Jack’s eyes to the truth about what was really going on in this country. Colter went on to say that WWE was a microcosm of that problem — how when Swagger went on a losing streak, it opened the door for Alberto Del Rio to “sneak in” and take his position. He claimed WrestleMania was not only about the World Title Match, but it was also a battle for the heart and soul of the country.

When J.R. accused Colter of brainwashing Swagger, the “Real American” knocked J.R.’s hat off, accusing the announcer of being a “sympathizer.”

As things were going from bad to worse, Alberto Del Rio emerged. Placing J.R.’s hat back on his head, Del Rio claimed Swagger was not a “Real American," but instead a “jackass.” Although it looked like things were about to turn physical, Swagger and Colter elected to leave the ring, saving their fight for The Show of Shows.
