Rich Swann VENTS Frustration on Twitter

Rich Swann VENTS Frustration on Twitter

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann took to Twitter to vent his frustration with independent wrestling promoters. The high-flyer implied his recent arrest hindered his ability to get booked and took a shot at CZW wrestler Nick Gage, who got sentenced to five years in prison for bank robbery in 2010.

Gage was quick to respond.

Swann was arrested and charged for kidnapping and misdemeanor battery after an incident with his wife Vannarah Riggs, also known as Impact Wrestling’s Su Yung. Swann was driving with Riggs when the two got into a heated argument. Swann’s anger reportedly frightened Riggs into jumping out of the car. Swann allegedly stopped the car, yelled for her to return, then put her in a chokehold and dragged her back. The couple reconciled shortly afterwards.

Swann later claimed he would retire after fulfilling his current bookings, although it could be interpreted as a joke.
