Rich Swann Announces His Retirement From Professional Wrestling


After parting ways with WWE, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Rich Swann, has announced that he will be retiring from professional wrestling.

Swann made the announcement on his Twitter account, stating that he will still be honoring his booked appearances, but after that, he is retiring from wrestling. Swann did thank all the promotions who have taken a chance on his name after his recent controversies.

The former WWE 205 Live stars Twitter has been a newsworthy place over recent days, after shooting on Nick Gage about appearing on a radio show and posting lots of songs from YouTube with comments about what they mean to him.

Rich Swann parted ways with WWE after a domestic abuse case took place involving him and his wife, and even though all charges against Swann were dropped, the company and Swann still decided to no longer work together.

The cruiserweight did also tweet about that, stating that he lost his dream job, but he can’t wait to wrestle again, even if he is going to be blown up.

Swann debuted in professional wrestling back in 2009 for Combat Zone Wrestling and has since performed for many of the top independents in America before reaching WWE. Swann will compete on the 17th of March, in Tijuana, Mexico, as well as for Tommy Dreamer’s House of Hardcore and UK’s Southside Wrestling Entertainment in the UK.
