An agile acrobat with a fondness for showboating, Rich Swann is one of the most exciting competitors in the Cruiserweight Classic.
The squared circle became an outlet for Swann to show his passion after a rough upbringing. He immediately took to the mat game and found inspiration in a generation of cruiserweight wrestlers like Eddie Guerrero, Rey Mysterio and Psicosis. Swann made a name for himself on the independent scene by adapting that high-flying style, dazzling audiences around the world with moves like his trademark standing 450 Splash. He also hooked crowds with his infectious charisma, often turning his entrances into karaoke parties.
Swann signed with WWE in fall 2015, and has made several appearances on NXT television, facing the likes of Baron Corbin and Finn Bálor. But the perfect opportunity for Swann to make a huge impact in WWE comes this summer in the Cruiserweight Classic.
