Rich Swann has been let go from WWE three weeks after all charges against him stemming from a December arrest were dropped.
“Rich Swann and WWE have mutually agreed to part ways as of today, February 15, 2018. WWE wishes Swann the best in all of his future endeavors,” a statement on WWE.COM read.
Police dropped all charges against Swann citing insufficient evidence after he was arrested in early December and charged with battery and false imprisonment following an incident with his wife. The original police reports states that Swann was critiquing his wife’s performance after a show in downtown Gainesville just hours earlier. He began to get angry with her and she got scared and got out of the car on the way to home. “The Def stopped his vehicle in the middle of traffic and the vic jumped out. The Def gave chase and yelled for the Vic to get back in the car. The Vic told the Def she did not want to get back in the car and she continued to walk away,” the report states.
Swann was supposed to wrestle Enzo Amore for the Cruiserweight title before he was arrested.
