Rich Swann was released from WWE after never coming back from a suspension. He was suspended after a messy assault charge was filed (and later dropped), but WWE released him anyway. Swann is working the indies and also showed up in Impact Wrestling where he recently signed a long-term contract.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter Noted that Swann has signed a 2-year deal with the professional wrestling company now based out of Canada. So “long-term” means 2-years for Impact Wrestling in this instance which is also an interesting point to note.

Impact Wrestling got a very good wrestler with Swann. Hopefully, with a new contract, he will get a push and possible raise his name even higher to be another example of someone who reached new fame outside of WWE after leaving the company.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
