On February 11, 2013, Zebekiah returned to WWE under the name of Zeb Colter, where he managed Jack Swagger. Colter received his first match on the April 1 edition of Raw against Alberto Del Rio, but seemed unable to actually wrestle. He ended up losing by disqualification and then he and Jack Swagger attacked Del Rio, repeatedly smacking him with Ricardo's crutches, who stayed at ringside and caused a distraction after Del Rio had told him to stay out of danger. On the April 8 episode of Raw, Colter teamed with Swagger in a Handicap match against Del Rio, though Colter never officially entered the ring, they were defeated by Del Rio by submission on Swagger. On the April 29 episode of Raw, Colter was involved in a triple-threat match with Rodriguez and Big E Langston (representing Dolph Ziggler), with the winner being able to determine the stipulation for the World Heavyweight Championship match at Extreme Rules. Colter lost the match after being pinned by Rodriguez. On the June 17th episode of Raw, after Jack Swagger suffered a hand injury, Colter aligned himself with Antonio Cesaro, who after defeating William Regal, covered him with the Gadsden flag. He did the same to Sin Cara the next week. Upon Swagger's return, Colter paired he and Cesaro as "The Real Americans." Both competed in the World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank ladder match but were unsuccessful. In October, Colter and the Real Americans began a feud with the new Latino tag team Los Matadores, claiming (as he had previously with Del Rio) that they had illegally entered the country. Colter feuded personally with El Torito, who gored him twice in the run-up to the event. Los Matadores defeated the Real Americans by pinfall at the Hell in a Cell PPV. The Real Americans were also entered into an elimination rules Fatal Fourway tag team match at TLC, but they were the second team to be eliminated. In January 2014, Colter started using a wheelchair after receiving a KO punch from The Big Show. He soon recovered and began to motivate his associates more to win their matches. Cesaro dumped Colter as his manager on the Raw following WrestleMania XXX, instead revealing that he was a new client of Paul Heyman. This therefore ended Cesaro's association with Swagger and Colter. Colter also started a feud with Paul Heyman, after accusing Heyman of "stealing" Cesaro from him. He still manages Swagger, however. Colter and Swagger were then involved in a segment with the debuting Adam Rose for being lemons. Rose would go on to beat Swagger in singles competition. On the June 30 episode of Raw, Swagger and Zeb would turn face after confronting Lana and Rusev. Also on the July 4 edition of SmackDown, Swagger and Zeb once again confronted Lana and Rusev. In this episode Zeb asked Lana who invented the internet, the car and who got a man on the moon first, trying to put over that the USA is greater than Russia. On August 18th at SummerSlam, Colter was checking on Swagger to see if he was okay from passing out to the Accolade until Rusev kicked Zeb in the face. Colter then was absent for two weeks before returning to be in Swagger's corner on the September 2 episode of RAW.
