    Rich Swann To Impact




    Been rumoured for a while, especially given his wife works there, so not really too surprised to see this announced today. I think it's a great get for Impact, slots in well in their X-Division which is fairly deep, or arguably could be higher up the card.

    Yeah I saw Su Yung retweeted and talking about it last week and I'm not shocked Impact would be interested in him, considering he was one of the top stars for 205 Live. Yeah the X-Division is really fucking deep at the moment especially since the AAA/LU guys came in, but I'm sure Swann whatever Impact wants to put him he'll do fine.

    I would imagine he'd not slot in to the X Division reckoning given his name power. Great capture for Impact though.
    I have a plan so cunning......

    Yeah I bet he still has bitter feelings towards WWE for that I bet, might be wrong on it but I would be the same way. I understand it's a business and they can't people who abuse their Wife on their Roster, but after the Charges were dismissed they should of brought him back. Well WWE's loss could be a gem for Impact going forward.

    Re: Rich Swann To Impact

    Eh, I'm sure he knows WWE is a corporation and sometimes you just need to separate yourself. His weirdness (which if he is innocent is pretty understandable) after didn't really help his rep. I can see why someone would be devastated having their rep and career seemingly ruined IF innocent but the way he acted didn't help his reputation either. His wife did go on about it on Twitter before she tweetdeleted her whole account a few weeks later saying he's not dangerous and to not believe what you hear, yada yada. So the most we can do is either trust the victim or don't tbh. Up to the individual.

    Either way, it'll be interesting to see what kind of response this gets. Now MLW and Impact, but I wonder how it would fly in an AIW or PWG with different kinds of fans.

    Reportedly the release was mutually agreed upon. But it's good that he's getting another chance.

    I think the general feeling was it's a "figure this out, get it fixed, and we'll talk again someday" kind of situation. Whether that changed once the results occurred is anyone's guess.

    That's what I was thinking. You never know though. Maybe he'll be back one day.

    Re: Rich Swann To Impact

    Impact have said tonight that Rich Swann has agreed a long term contract with the promotion. Great news for both parties and I'd expect a stronger push for the guy now.

    Re: Rich Swann To Impact

    I really hope the guy was innocent and that the story just got out of hand. I can't help but let the whole thing taint my opinion of the guy because he seems pretty guilty because of how he acted and the whole situation to begin with. But either way, the guy is a hell of a talent and I hope the best for him. There are some great matches waiting for him in Impact.

    Re: Rich Swann To Impact

    Was never really a fan of the guy in WWE, then the whole situation with the charges happened...I don't see me ever becoming a fan. But I do agree with Ed that this will probably lead to a stronger push now.
