Another member of the Impact Wrestling roster has agreed to a deal with the company.
Though the exact length wasn’t disclosed, Impact announced on Twitter today that Rich Swann has signed a “long-term contract” with the promotion: “We are absolutely delighted to announce that @GottaGetSwann has signed a long-term contract with IMPACT Wrestling.”
Swann made his Impact debut in June and was supposed to be in action at Slammiversary XVI this month, but a concussion that he suffered on the Thursday before the pay-per-view kept him from wrestling.
WWE and Swann parted ways in February following domestic battery and false imprisonment charges against Swan being dismissed due to insufficient evidence to sustain a conviction. The December 2017 arrest was made after an argument between Swann and his wife, Vannarah Riggs (current Knockouts Champion Su Yung). The arrest report alleged that Swann grabbed Riggs and dragged her back into their vehicle after she had gotten out due to fearing the argument was going to escalate. Swann denied physically touching Riggs.
Tessa Blanchard also signed a two-year contract with Impact earlier this month, while Eli Drake agreed to a new multi-year deal in June.
