Less than a month after Amore was terminated, WWE and Swann parted ways. Two months earlier, Swann was arrested in Gainesville, FL on charges of battery and kidnapping/false imprisonment, stemming from an alleged altercation with his wife, fellow wrestler Su Yung.

The charges were dropped about six weeks later, though Swann never returned to WWE television, and was let go just a few weeks after. At the time of the arrest, Swann was set to wrestle Drew Gulak to determine a number one contender for Amore's belt.
