Rich Swann, who recently signed with WWE as a developmental talent, spoke with WWE.com about training at the WWE Performance Center and his wrestling career. Here are the highlights.
One month in, how’s it going at the WWE Performance Center?
It’s going really well. There are some tough days, but every day I learn something new. It’s the best facility ever. Anybody who wants to be a wrestler, this is the place to be. You’ve got the best coaches. You can’t go wrong.
At age 24, you already have eight years of experience. What led to you starting at such a young age?
I’ve always been a fan of wrestling. By the time I was five, I knew that’s what I wanted to do. I’ll never forget: I was watching the “Power Rangers,” which my mom recorded for me, and my brother came in from basketball practice and said, “We’re not watching this, we’re watching Monday Night Raw.” He turned it on and Bret Hart came out. I’d never seen wrestling before that, and I remember him coming out to all these crazy lights, holding the WWE Championship, and I was like, “Wow, this is really amazing.”
