Former WWE Superstar Rich Swann took part in a media call today for Impact Wrestling and spoke about numerous topics ranging from his personal life to him working with Impact Wrestling.
As we all know by now, the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion was released by the company earlier this year due to domestic violence allegations between him and his wife, current Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Su Yung. Right before his release, Swann was poised to get another shot at the Crusierweight Championship. The allegations and the backlash from it caused him to retire from professional wrestling altogether, but Swann has recently returned to the squared circle.
During the call, Swann addressed the elephant in the room by stating that he and is wife are fine and in a better place. They both just want everyone to forget about the past and focus on their careers.
Last week on Impact, Josh Matthews announced that Swann would be making his Impact Wrestling debut this week. It has now been confirmed for those who were either in the audience or read the spoilers that Swann would be taking on the leader of The Cult of Lee, Trevor Lee, one-on-one.
Swann went on to talk about some of his dream opponents which included Sami Callihan and even pitched an idea for him and Jake Crist to face off in the opening match of Slammiversary this year. Swann also touted Crist to be one of the best professional wrestlers today. He even revealed that he would be facing Lucha Underground’s own Fenix in the coming weeks.
During the call, Swann was also asked who he would like to have a dance off with. Everyone who has followed Rich Swann during his time in WWE knows that he a bust a move or two here and there. His entrance music even asked “Can You Handle This?”, to which Swann answered by saying he would love to have a dance off with Grado and “The Machine” Brian Cage. Swann went as far as to say that Cage can do the Spinaroonie made famous by WWE Hall of Famer Booker T.
Swann also announced that he has been offered an Impact Wrestling contract. He went on to say that he knows the majority of the guys that work for Impact and it was like coming home to see family for him. He even said that it would be great to work for the same promotion as his wife.
