Tony Nese appears on AEW Dynamite

Tony Nese made an appearance on tonight’s AEW Dynamite.

Nese was shown during the opening match, where Bryan Danielson defeated Dustin Rhodes to advance in the World Title Eliminator tournament. Nese was then shown again during the second tournament match, when Eddie Kingston defeated Lance Archer to advance. Both times the announcers put over that Nese was one of the hottest free agents in the industry.

After being released from WWE in June, Nese resurfaced on the independents in September, wrestling for Daily Wrestling, Create a Pro, WrestlePro, and Championship Wrestling from Atlanta.

Nese had been a part of WWE’s cruiserweight division since 2016 as one of the original members of the 205 Live roster. He won the Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania 35, holding it until that June, when he dropped it to Drew Gulak. Nese continued to wrestle on the brand until he was released on June 25, with his final match airing on June 15 where he lost to Ikemen Jiro.
