FORMER WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPION RICH SWANN HAS HAD ALL CHARGES DISMISSED AGAINST HIM.

The charges were thrown out this afternoon this afternoon when a determination was made by Prosecutors that there was “insufficient evidence” to move forward with the case.

Rich Swann was arrested on the morning of  12th of October, 2017 and charged with false imprisonment/kidnapping and a misdemeanor charge of battery. The victim in the alleged incident was Swann’s wife, Vannarah Riggs, who is also known as professional wrestler Su Yung.

WWE immediately suspended Swann under the company’s domestic violence policy, which states, “WWE has zero tolerance for matters involving domestic violence, child abuse and sexual assault. Upon arrest for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately suspended. Upon conviction for such misconduct, a WWE talent will be immediately terminated.”

The charges being dismissed should lead to Swann’s reinstatement back onto the WWE roster.
