Jake Hager (AKA WWE’s Jack Swagger) is ready for Bellator debut

Former WWE superstar, Jack Swagger (AKA Jake Hager, is more than ready for his MMA debut. He is one of the few pro wrestlers to transition from the squared circle to the enclosed cage to take real face punches. Like Brock Lesnar, he has an extensive background in amateur wrestling. Wrestling has always proven to be the best base discipline for those moving to mixed martial arts.

However, since Hager is coming directly from the WWE, he’s already drawing comparisons to CM Punk, which is way off base. Punk had a dream and no fighting experience at all in his arsenal, whereas Hager was a college wrestler, which is huge.

Of course, TMZ have to ask the questions that pertain to CM Punk, but they are totally unwarranted. Hager is his own man and looks to debut with a win at Bellatoron January 26.
