Former WWE Cruiserweight champion Rich Swann has been taken off the Slammiversary XVI card due to an injury. Swann was supposed to participate in a four-way match featuring also Johnny Impact, Fenix, and Taiji Ishimori.

PWInsider.com reported yesterday that Swann was taken to a hospital following a head injury he suffered at the MLW Battle Riot event. He is believed to be suffering from a concussion and was not cleared to returning to the ring so quickly.

Replacing Swann will be Petey Williams and the announcement was made during a live Periscope broadcast from inside the Rebel Entertainment Complex hosted by Josh Mathews.
