Ringside News has confirmed that a former Champion in WWE has now officially signed with Impact Wrestling and will begin competing with them at the next set of tapings.

Former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann has come out of retirement and has now signed with Impact Wrestling.

During the last set of tapings, we noted that Swann was backstage at Impact. This may have been when discussions between the two parties began. We also noted that he was likely there to support his significant other in Su Yung, despite their past.

Swann will be appearing at St. Clair College in Windsor for Impact Wrestling’s tapings on June 1-2. By the looks of it, Impact will be working alongside Border City Wrestling again.

Check out the official Impact tweet on Swann signing with them:

Swann has yet to specifically comment on his signing, but he has competed with Impact before, so he may not feel the need to. His most recent match with them was just a few weeks ago during the Pentagon Jr. show in Iowa.

Below we’ve featured one of Swann’s final WWE matches:
