PW Insider is reporting that X-Division Champion Rich Swann has signed a new two year deal with Impact Wrestling which will see him with the company through May 2021. Swann had the following to say
It’s a multi-year deal and that’s something we can build off of. Seeing how the company is growing, there’s no reason to think that it can’t become a relationship that lasts even longer. I’m treated very well and I’m very happy there. It’s one of the most packed rosters right now.
Swann then revealed how Impact helped him out following his ugly WWE exit due to a domestic incident involving his wife in which charges were dropped
Everyone saw how I was after everything happened. I have no ill will towards anybody, but Impact Wrestling they helped me up, they brought me up, when I decided I was going to retire, quotations, quotations. There were a lot of guys – Sonjay [Dutt], Sami [Callihan], Scott D’Amore, Don Callis – they were reaching out and saying, hey, there’s always a place for you right here. You are talented. Don’t stop. They uplifted me. To see that, like that’s something I want to be a part of. That helped me change my mind. Then, being able to be on the road and being with people. It changed my way of thinking. Man…It’s made me grow. I’ve been more mature. Like, focused. More attentive. More happy. I’m saying, I’m a part of something that, other than the wrestling side, people actually care about you, you know what I’m saying? I’m not saying that people in other wrestling companies don’t care [when you work there] but it really comes across and like, something like that is really big for me. That’s what made me to decide to re-sign with these guys and to continue working with them. It keeps me in a good head place. It keeps my head in a good space.
He then spoke about a returning RVD and admitted that facing the ECW legend would be a dream match
Of course he's a dream match. RVD vs. Jerry Lynn is one of my favorite matches. Anything RVD did, you know what I’m saying? That’s definitely a dream match opponent for me.
