Former Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann returned to Impact Wrestling for his first match in since January 2020 at Slammiversary last month. However, his return didn’t go exactly as planned.
Swann was brutally attacked by fellow former WWE star Eric Young, and Impact Wrestling has been playing up Swann’s injury on the last few weeks of TV and on social media.
The angle continued on this week’s show as, likely just as part of the ongoing storyline with Eric Young, Rich Swann announced his retirement from wrestling. You can check out his promo by clicking here.
