Sean Waltman On The Passing Of Brian Christopher:

I’m really pissed about this, really pissed. Because I’ve been in that situation in more than one way. And you don’t take someone that’s not done something violent or isn’t a danger to others, even then you don’t put somebody in solitary confinement…You don’t put people in solitary confinement for that long that didn’t do shit and then go ‘Oh, it wasn’t solitary confinement,’ it’s f***ing solitary confinement! I’ve been in it, if you’ve never actually been in it I don’t want to hear it from you at all. It’s torture. It drives you crazy, you don’t have to be suicidal, you become suicidal; you stay in there with no one to talk too staring at the walls for that long. I’ve been there and I’ve hung myself and so I know. I have a pretty good idea of where he {Brian Christopher} was and it’s just about the worst place you can ever imagine. Not only are you in the lowest possible place but you die that way. You never come up out of it…. I love that guy {Brian Christopher}, I was tight with Brian in WWE… He was crazy as f*** no doubt, but if you knew him like I did you would know he’s a real wonderful guy.

Rich Swann On The Impact Wrestling Roster:

The roster is amazing… wherever I land on Impact I am happy with because I’m just trying to have great matches and I am happy I am with Impact. The company is growing, it’s on national TV. The guys are wrestling everywhere it doesn’t matter if it’s Ring of Honor or New JapanSlammiversary had a sprinkle of everything and it culminated and made it like ‘Boom this is Impact!’. The production value is amazing, how they present stuff; promos and packages are unique. I think that catches people eye. I think another thing that has Impact on an upward is just the wrestling. The wrestling right now is hotter than ever.

Rich Swann On Su Yung’s Character:

It’s chilling because that’s somebody that I see every day. But to see her transform and her character and especially how they (Impact) push behind it. The product and how they shoot it. And like how she just makes it her own, you know what I’m saying. It’s definitely like Muta-esque but she turned it into her own. For example, one of the dopest clips that they’ve (Impact) done for her… when they had all the bridesmaids around the casket that they put Rosemary in and she’s got the Impact Knockouts Championship and she’s posing like she’s about to do the mist but it comes out as fire and burns the coffin. That was insane. The production value of that was nuts…it was awesome. That’s just another thing you know what I’m saying to show that Impact is on the rise. She definitely works that character.

Rich Swann On The Passing Of Vader:

Everybody was sad… I know I thought he was dope, I got to meet him a couple times he was nice to me. Of course, I didn’t really know him personally like that you know but as a performer, and as a guy. I met him a couple times it was really nice, it’s a loss. I know I watched a couple of Vader matches; Vader moonsault highlights… he is definitely going to be missed.
