The WWE has been hoovering up the top indy wrestling talent like a vacuum in the past year or so.
With NXT booming like it has been and the promotion becoming more important month after month, the WWE has been bringing in the brightest young things from around the World in order to keep up and maintain their high levels.
And it seems like Rich Swann is the next in that long pipeline to receive the call to the big leagues, after it was confirmed by a wrestling promotion that he was joining the WWE.

There had been rumors abounding for weeks now that Swann was going to be joining the WWE, but is has now been seemingly confirmed.
Revolution Pro - a wrestling company in the United Kingdom - has announced that Swann is off their upcoming shows due to "WWE commitments".
"Unfortunately due to commitments with WWE Rich Swann has had to pull out of his advertised appearances in two weeks time...We wish Rich Swann all the best and thank him for some of the most memorable moments in RevPro over the past few years," their statement read.
Interestingly, Swann will be replaced at the show by another wrestler who could also be signing with the WWE in a matter of weeks, Tommaso Ciampa.
The 24-year old Swann will be a very interesting addition to NXT, with the high flying Baltimore native being an eye-catching performer in the ring. Check out the video below and tell us what you think of NXT's newest star.
