"WWE Monday Night Raw" aired on Feb. 11 and Jack Swagger continued in his return to the ring with a brand new manager named Zeb Culter. Long time fans recognize this man as legendary wrestler Dirty Dutch Mantell.
Swagger won his match quickly over Zack Ryder and made him submit to his Patriot Lock, which is what he calls his ankle lock submission. After the match, his strange looking new manager entered the ring.
The man introduced himself as Zeb Culter, the new manager of Swagger. He then called Swagger a real American and then called himself a real American. He looked around the crowd and said that he didn't know where most of the people there came from, but they weren't real Americans. He said this was the "land of the free and the home of the brave" and not the "land of the free and home of whoever crosses the border."
It seems like this might be the start of a push for Swagger to face off with Alberto Del Rio in the future.
For those unaware, Zeb Culter is Dirty Dutch Mantell, an old school from the territories days who used to wrestle alongside other roughneck stars like Dick Murdoch and The American Dream Dusty Rhodes. He wrestled in the NWA and had very memorable feuds with Jerry "The King" Lawler in Memphis.
In the '90s, Mantell worked as a manager in the WWE as Uncle Zeb, who managed JBL when the future world champion began his WWE career. Up until 2009, he worked behind the scenes for TNA Impact Wrestling.
