Rich Swann Discusses Overcoming Lack Of Size In Wrestling

Rich Swann of Impact Wrestling was recently interviewed by Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio. You can see highlights below, and the full interview at this link.

The smaller talent enjoying more success now than ever before in wrestling:
"I think now that everyone is coming up with all this insane stuff, it doesn't matter how big or small you are. This is being looked at as a sport. Everybody knows what professional wrestling is, of course. But, when you see guys going out there and throwing their bodies over the top rope and doing all these twists and flips... But, not only that. Lets throw Zack Sabre Jr. out there. Not one of the biggest guys. But, when you see that guy twist somebody's arm the way they do that British catch as catch can wrestling like he and Jonathan Gresham did, it is like, man! You know, it doesn't matter if you're like 300 pounds and 7 feet tall anymore. You know what I mean? This is a new game! What I'm contributing to it is that passion. Just entertaining! I don't care that I'm 5'6 and 165 pounds. People are going to notice me!"

On the great match he had with Michael Elgin on Impact recently:
"Yes, sir! Thank you! Michael Elgin's wrestling IQ is crazy. I think he is one of the best wrestlers going in our industry today."
