Swann last wrestled on 205 Live this past Tuesday, where he defeated Tony Nese. He had won a fatal four way match back on November 27 where he would square off against the winner of another fatal four way, Drew Gulak. The two were supposed to wrestle this Monday on Raw to determine the next number one contender for the Cruiserweight championship, which Enzo Amore currently holds. 

He was signed by WWE in 2015, sparingly used on NXT television until becoming a part of WWE's Cruiserweight Classic tournament. He stood out, doing well in the tournament. He was brought up to compete on the 205 Live brand and won the championship later that year. Since losing the title to Neville early in 2017, he has been mainly been in various other feuds on 205 Live. He most recently started a tag team with Cedric Alexander and had been feuding with Jack Gallagher and Brian Kendrick.

WWE has not commented on the arrest yet, and probably won't until the morning. We'll update you as soon as possible.
