While speaking to TheWrap, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H were asked for an update on Rich Swann’s employement status following his arrest on battery and kidnapping charges.

“We are just waiting on the legal,” Triple H said. “We have a zero-tolerance policy on that, as you’ve well seen. So he’s suspended until it is determined legally one way or the other.”

“And if he’s convicted, he will be released,” Stephanie McMahon added, meaning that he will be dropped by the company.

“Immediately,” her husband Triple H chimed back in.


As previously noted, Swann was arrested last month in Gainesville, Florida, where he was charged with battery and the kidnapping of his wife, Vannarah Riggs.

“WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, and per our policy, Rich Swann has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest,” WWE said in a statement at the time.
