Rich Swann is set to be the focus of Impact Plus over the next month, as the service pays tribute to the Impact Wrestling World Champion. Impact Wrestling announced on Wednesday that the next month is “Rich Swann Month” on the service, which got an overhaul over the weekend just before Turning Point.

The announcement reads:

The way Rich Swann blazed back from career threatening injuries to win the IMPACT World Championship at last month’s BOUND FOR GLORY© Pay-Per-View event is one of the biggest stories of the year.

To celebrate his incredible comeback, IMPACT Plus is proud to present a month of special programming featuring the reigning World Champion. Rich Swann Month is currently streaming on IMPACT’s newly improved digital subscription service.

Highlights include:

The bitter rivals join host Josh Mathews relive their classic one-on-one match from last year’s REBELLION event.

Rich Swann is still a wrestling fanboy at heart, and here he introduces five of his favorites from IMPACT history including classics involving Ric Flair, Mick Foley, AJ Styles and Low Ki.
