There has been a shakeup at FloSports involving a key player in New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s presence in the United States over the last decade.
Adam Swift, a key player in bringing NJPW to the United States of America when he worked for AXS TV, announced on his Twitter account that he has been named the Vice President of Business and Legal Affairs at FloSports.
I’m thrilled to share that I’ve joined @flosports as Vice President, Business and Legal Affairs. I’ve championed underserved sports and athletes throughout my career and I’m excited to continue that mission at an innovator and leader in sports streaming!— Adam Swift (@AdamMSwift) November 5, 2020
Adam was employed by AXS for 11 years. During his time there, Swift worked as legal counsel at AXS and was an executive producer for New Japan Pro-Wrestling. Swift was also integral in getting Ring of Honor on AXS (formerly HDNet).
This is my last week at AXS TV after 11 amazing years. Proud of all that we accomplished, blessed to have worked with so many wonderful people, and excited for the next adventure.— Adam Swift (@AdamMSwift) September 10, 2019
Swift was let go by AXS following their purchase by Anthem, the parent company of IMPACT Wrestling, back in 2019.
FloSports was briefly involved in wrestling when they were the home of WWNLive content. That partnership began in October of 2016 and lasted less than a year.
Fightful will continue to monitor the story and report any and all updates.
