Swann is the husband of reigning Knockouts Champion Su Yung. He was backstage at several Impact Wrestling TV tapings that took place in Orlando, Florida last month, which is where the new promo photo of him comes from.
On February 15, WWE announced that Swann and WWE had mutually agreed on his contract release. WWE’s 90-day no-compete clause stipulated in the terms of his release expires this week, so he should be free to appear on any wrestling television show or pay-per-view. Since his departure from WWE, he’s been working indie wrestling events.
