WWE Superstar Rich Swann Suspended

Rich Swann has been suspended indefinitely by the WWE following an arrest Saturday night in Gainesville, Florida.

Swann, 26, was arguing with his wife, who is also a wrestler, according to Gainesville police.

One witness said Swann didn't even put his vehicle in park to chase his wife and the auto slowly rolled into a telephone pole during the nightmarish situation. As the argument escalated, Riggs fled the vehicle the pair were traveling in, only to be chased by Swann who was said to have put her in a headlock and dragged her back to the auto.

Police say Swann denied grabbing her and that she went back to the vehicle on her own.

Swann was arrested and held in jail on charges of battery and false imprisonment (kidnapping).

When WWE chose to bring back the cruiserweight division to its main roster - and subsequently create the show 205 Live for the WWE Network - Swann was chosen to become a major focus, defeating then-champion Brian Kendrick for the cruiserweight title on the first episode of 205 Live.
