All Elite Wrestling star and former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Jake Hager (formerly known as Jack Swagger in WWE) was recently a guest on Chris Jericho's Talk is Jericho podcast.
During his conversation with Jericho, Hager revealed that he was originally supposed to cash in his Money in the Bank contact on John Cena and win the WWE Championship in 2010. As fans may recall, Hager ended up cashing in the MITB on Chris Jericho to win the World Heavyweight Championship on SmackDown.
Hager told Jericho the following:
“I had a little inclination, but I had no idea what was going to happen. The night before, I teased it on Raw. I hit Cena with the briefcase, I snuck up on him when he had one of his brilliant promo segments. Later, come to find out, he refused to do the job for me for the WWE Championship. We won’t talk about that. Ugh. ‘The most unselfish top man in the business.”
