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.

His first year with Impact Wrestling:
"You know, Impact Wrestling has been great. It has some of the best talent. Brian Cage, all of oVe - Sami Callihan, Dave Christ, and Jake Christ, Michael Elgin - A new acquisition for Impact Wrestling, Willie Mack.... Lets talk about that Knockouts division with Tessa Blanchard, Su Young, Rosemary, you've got Jordynne Grace! Everything is stacked for Impact! And, right now, things are coming for the better!"

On if being the X Division Champion lives up to his expectations from last year:
"You know what? It does. It is a lot of hard work. It si going out there no matter what show you're on and putting on the best show you can. People expect that as they should. There has been great X Division Champions as I've named in the past. I'd just like to keep that legacy going."

Defending against a former World Champion in Johnny Impact:
"Johnny Impact is a guy I have grown up watching. You know what I'm saying? He is a guy who can go out there and literally do anything. To go out there with him again and possibly defend the X Division Championship, that is an honor to me. I feel we can go out there and do some things that have never been done just because of our athletic ability and what we can do in the ring."
