Looking to regain the United States Title and avenge his fallen mentor in one fell swoop, Jack Swagger will challenge U.S. Champion Rusev this Sunday at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs … and Stairs.

The Super Athlete heinously attacked Zeb Colter backstage during the Dec. 1 Raw, injuring Swagger’s patriotic partner and fueling even more animosity between he and The Real American.

Already familiar foes, Rusev and Swagger clashed in several high-profile bouts earlier this year, including a fierce Flag Match at SummerSlam. Though Swagger holds a rare disqualification victory over the outspoken Hero of the Russian Federation, no one has yet pinned Rusev or made him tap. To reclaim the U.S. Championship, which he held briefly in 2012, Swagger must achieve one of those two outcomes this Sunday.

Given Rusev’s unprovoked beatdown of Colter, there is ample reason to believe Swagger will be more motivated than ever when he stands across the ring from The Super Athlete at WWE TLC. Rusev and Lana witnessed Swagger’s fury in person after Rusev claimed responsibility for taking out Colter, as the irate Oklahoman bolted to the ring and bum-rushed the U.S. Champion before WWE officials intervened.

Don’t miss out when this highly charged collision takes center stage at WWE TLC. Will Swagger make Colter proud by finally forcing Rusev to succumb to the Patriot Lock, or will the U.S. Champion’s streak of dominance continue? Find out by watching WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs … and Stairs this Sunday on WWE Network and pay-per-view at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

After the announcement by a reinvigorated Barrett, proud son of Switzerland Cesaro had a declaration of his own, in several languages. He pointed out that his native country has stayed neutral throughout global conflict, but in “the greatest battle in WWE history” – Team Cena vs. Team Authority – he is indeed taking sides with Team Authority. Cesaro’s former allies, Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger, emerged to make a statement of their own. Colter claimed Swiss neutrality is a myth and Cesaro is just a brown noser, unlike Americans, who work hard to get things done – just like they – and Team Cena – will!

When the former tag team partners decided to then settle their score in the ring on the Survivor Series Kickoff, Swagger made his country proud with an all-American victory. Swagger locked Cesaro in the Patriot Lock early, putting the Swiss Superman in trouble, but Cesaro kicked his way out out of the hold, driving Swagger out of the ring. As the battle raged on, Cesaro hit The All-American American with two vicious German suplexes, but on the attempted third, Swagger countered with another Patriot Lock, this time forcing his former ally to tap out. We The People!

WINNER: Jack Swagger

Jack Swagger prepares to defend America’s honor at SummerSlam when he takes on the hulking Hero of the Russian Federation, Rusev, in a Flag Match.

Lana, Rusev’s social ambassador, laid out a challenge for the match on the Aug. 1 edition of SmackDown, a challenge that Zeb Colter immediately and zealously accepted on Swagger’s behalf. At SummerSlam, Old Glory will be hanging in one corner of the ring and the Russian flag in another, and the first Superstar to incapacitate his opponent enough so he can scale the turnbuckles and capture his own flag will be declared the victor.

To date, no Superstar has given Rusev more trouble than Colter’s 6-foot-7, 275-pound, corn-fed “Big Hoss.” Lana’s Super Athlete has yet to suffer a pinfall or submission loss since debuting in WWE in April, but Swagger is the lone Superstar to have notched a win of any kind — albeit, a disqualification victory — over the Bulgarian-born Russian icon.

The clashes so far between Swagger and Rusev have all been hard-hitting affairs, but their Aug. 27 showdown now contains an overtly patriotic twist. When the dust settles, will it be the Stars and Stripes — which Colter says stands for “pick-up trucks, pretty girls and beers” — that’s waved proudly? Or will Lana and Rusev have their way, and it will be the red, white and blue of the Russian flag that’s triumphantly displayed for all to see?

Watch these two heavyweight warriors tie up at SummerSlam, which airs live on WWE Network and pay-per-view Sunday, Aug. 17, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

Can Rusev crush a Real American? That will be the question on the minds of the WWE Universe when former World Champion Jack Swagger and the undefeated Rusev throw hands in a super-heavyweight American-Russian showdown at WWE Battleground.

It’s a collision that WWE fans have anticipated ever since Lana and the Bulgarian-born Hero of the Russian Federation began trash-talking the stars-and-stripes many months ago. Patriotic to the core, Swagger and outspoken propagator Zeb Colter haven’t always endeared themselves to audiences with their polarizing messages. Yet, by confronting Rusev and Lana on the June 30 edition of Raw and pointing out that it’s the freedom of speech that allows them to spew their anti-American sentiments, Swagger and Colter immediately became unlikely heroes, leading perhaps the most resounding “We the People!” chant in history.

Swagger and Colter also spent weeks challenging Rusev, and on July 14, the powerhouse finally accepted after a Russia Détente broke down on Raw.

Swagger has done more than just garner the support of the WWE Universe; the 6-foot-7 former University of Oklahoma All-American has also taken the 305-pound Super Athlete off his feet — a rare sight thus far in Rusev’s blossoming WWE career.

Now that he’s leading the charge in a fight that much of the WWE Universe can get behind, will Swagger be able to stop Lana’s monstrous newcomer? Or will The Real American’s night on July 20 come to an unceremonious end with Lana’s command of “Crush!” and Rusev locking in the Accolade?

National pride will be at stake when these two tanks — both unflinching in their beliefs and unwilling to back down — meet head-on. Don’t miss the brawl when WWE Battleground airs live on WWE Network and pay-per-view Sunday, July 20, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
