Yung dropped the charges before any investigation could be concluded, and Swann and WWE agreed a mutual parting of ways last month.
Maryland-born Swann, 27, found himself with no shortage of offers after his release and was booked for Mexico’s Crash Promotion on March 17, and Tommy Dreamer’s House Of Hardcore card on April 7 during WrestleMania weekend.
Yet as of Thursday, March 8, Swann seems to be done with wrestling.
After all the bookings ive taken im so scared to step in the ring but i cant wait lol. But after there done i will be retiring. Thank you for taking the chance on my name
Su Yung also spoke out on Twitter, asking for their privacy to be respected, claiming that Swann has her full support. A later tweet asks for people to “accept and move forward”.
After training with Combat Zone Wrestling and debuting for the promotion in May 2009, Swann plied his trade worldwide, turning out for companies such as Dragon Gate USA, Evolve, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, CHIKARA, German promotion Westside Xtreme Wrestling and a plethora of others across North America and Europe.
Having made his name taking on the likes of Johnny Gargano, Adam Cole, Will Ospreay, Zack Sabre Jr, Kevin Owens and Roderick Strong, Swann found himself signed to a development deal with WWE, debuting for NXT in 2014. Mark Henry had persuaded WWE to take a chance on Swann after the hype surrounding him became too big to ignore.
After a star turn in 2016’s Cruiserweight Classic, Swann picked up the WWE Cruiserweight Championship in November of that year before losing it to Neville 61 days later.
Swann was a regular fixture on 205 Live until his arrest and subsequent release.
