Former WWE superstar announced for upcoming Impact tapings

May 15, 2018 - by Colin Vassallo

Former WWE Cruiserweight champion Rich Swann will be making his Impact Wrestling debut at the upcoming television tapings in two weeks time. The tapings will be held at St. Clair College in Windsor, Ontario, Canada on Friday June 1 and Saturday June 2. Swann will be there for both dates. Swann’s time in WWE lasted a year and a half. He was a participant in the Cruiserweight Classic and then signed to a full-time deal when WWE launched the 205 Live show. Unfortunately for him, he was arrested in December 2017 following a domestic violence incident involving his wife. The much-publicized incident ended up being the worst case scenario for Swann as even though the case against him was dropped by the police, he was released from the company in February of this year. In March he announced that he would be retiring from professional wrestling but that only lasted a month as he returned at an indie show.

    …what was the point of the retirement at all?!

    Ive been asking myself that for weeks now, but you know what? I have a plausible answer. I think when he got arrested, he knew that WWE likes to bury people in controversy, i mean, its something theyve done for as long as the Curtain Call incident, if not before. So he asks to get out of his contract and basically “retires” aka sits out his no compete clause. And now that that’s done, he’s un-“retired”
