Earlier this month, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann was arrested after an incident that occurred with his wife, Vannarah Riggs (aka Su Yung), following a FEST wrestling event where Swann’s girlfriend was performing. Swann was reportedly critiquing his wife’s match when things got heated, causing Riggs to flee the vehicle while it was still in motion.

Swann reportedly forced her back into the car against her will via headlock. It appears as thought Swann and his wife has since reconciled after the debacle, as Riggs posted the following on her Facebook page:

“I can not wait to see my husband tomorrow! After such an awesome weekend of wrestling debuting in two different promotions across America nothing would be better than to see his face.”

Because it seems that they’ve put the incident behind them, there’s speculation that Riggs won’t be pressing charges against Swann. Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline speculated that because of these recent developments, there’s a slight bit of hope for Swann’s WWE career after all – but don’t bank on it:

“If no charges are filed legally, WWE may bring him back, but I don’t know if that would be a certainty. In theory, no charges should mean the slate is clean and he should return, but given the time we’re living in, they could simply decide not to use him.”
