WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann recently spoke with ESPN about his career and more.
On joining WWE:
“[My story] shows that anybody can make it in anything that you do and anything you want to succeed, no matter what is in your path,” Swann said. “And I’m not ashamed of it. These are things that have happened. I would never change anything. This is an opportunity that so many people would do anything for and I just don’t want to take that for granted,” he said.
On his character:
“I feel like I have to go out there and keep on entertaining, keep on dancing and keep on being me,” he said. “Keep on doing things that I do — ‘Beat it’ dances, splits, excitement, keeping the smile going. That’s what I got to do to keep up with that ‘Outlandish’ nickname because I am outlandish, after all.”
