In a statement issued to PWInsider.com, WWE said that Jack Swagger has not been released from his WWE deal yet despite his announcement that he is out.
“Jack Swagger has not been granted a release from his WWE contract. When he is granted his release, Jack Swagger will remain under exclusive contract to WWE for 90 days and will be compensated accordingly during that period,” the statement read.
Swagger already booked himself for a show in the United Kingdom on March 10, so even if he is released from his deal by that date, he cannot wrestle anywhere for 90 days following his official termination date.
The former World Heavyweight champion was supposed to wrestle TNA’s Alberto El Patron in Norwich, England.
The Oklahoma native announced that he is departing WWE earlier this week on Chael Sonnen’s Beyond the Fight podcast.
