Rich Swann

WWE has announced the release of Rich Swann (Richard Allen Swann) on Thursday.

The statement issued by WWE described the release as mutual between both parties.

“Rich Swann and WWE have mutually agreed to part ways as of today, February 15, 2018. WWE wishes Swann the best in all of his future endeavors.”

Swann was arrested back in December and charged with domestic battery and false imprisonment over an incident with his wife (wrestler Su Yung).

Reports made the rounds two weeks ago that Swann had been cleared of all charges. Attempts by to contact WWE about this was never returned.

Swann signed a deal with WWE back in 2015 to be part of the NXT brand. In 2016, he transitioned over to the main roster as part of the Cruiserweight division and the start of the 205 Live brand. Swann had a run as WWE Cruiserweight Champion that same year.

Thanks to our friends at Online World of Wrestling for help with this report.


  1. So,one of the few people with any likable personality (aside from Cedric Alexander and Drew Gulak) got released for something that got dropped a few weeks? No doubt,what Rich Swann did was incredibly stupid but worser happened and the charges were dropped.On a side note,I wonder if him and Enzo Amore will form a tag team?

  2. Well Amore didn’t beat his wife he allegedly raped his victim and Swann got the charges dropped due to lack of evidence so i say they call their fiction tag team “Bonafide Allegations”

  3. well as the statement says its was a mutual decision. maybe swann wasnt happy with the treatment he got as he was cleared of all charges
