At tonight’s CZW Best of the Best tournament, former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann made his surprise return, not only to the company he wrestled for from 2009 till he signed with the WWE in 2015, but to wrestling itself. It was just over a month ago that Rich Swann announced he was retiring from professional wrestling, cancelling all his indie bookings (including WrestleMania weekend) since his departure from the WWE on February 15th, 2018.

His last match before tonight was December 5, 2017, against Tony Nese on WWE’s 205 LiveSwann was announced as the final (and surprise) entrant into Best of the Best, CZW’s annual tournament since 2001, and was inserted into the original triple threat first round match between Joey JanelaBrandon Kirk, and Joe Gacy. Despite his surprise return, Swann failed to advance out of the first round, taking the pin from Gacy.

It remains to be seen if this is a one-night-only appearance, or if Swann is back on the Indy scene.
