– During an episode of RAW in December of 2014, Jack Swagger’s Manager Zeb Colter’s leg was “broken” (Kayfabe Injury) by Rusev as part of the Storyline. That way Zeb Colter was written off of Television for an unknown amount of time. After doing some research, we can confirm now, that he is indeed still with under WWE Contract. He is officially still “recovering from surgery”, but in reality WWE just waits, till the creative department has something new for him. With Jack Swagger basically being used as a Jobber / undercard talent these days, it’s most likely that after his return, Zeb won’t be back as his manager, but in a different capacity.
– As we noted earlier, former TNA World Heavyweight Champion James Storm made his WWE debut at last night’s NXT tapings. He defeated Danny Burch in a short match by hitting the Eye of the Storm. He worked the match as a babyface. Nia Jax made her debut as well. Also, Apollo Crews became the #1 contender for the NXT Championship by winning the #1 Contender’s Battle Royal.
The participants in the match were: Samoa Joe, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Apollo Crew, Scott Dawson, Dash Wilder, Blake, Murphy, Rhyno, Baron Corbin, Enzo Amore, Colin Cassady, Bull Dempsey, Zack Ryder, Mojo Rawley, Tyler Breeze, and Tye Dillinger. Corbin and Crews were the last two wrestlers left in the ring and Crews came out as the victor.
Below is a what James Storm tweeted regarding his NXT debut:
Thanks JR. Like you said, take the opportunity and run with it. https://t.co/f7jiCnGsfE— James Storm (@JamesStormBrand) October 9, 2015
