In a tweet from Tony Khan before AEW Rampage yesterday, he finally revealed that ‘The Premier Athlete’ Tony Nese is now All Elite. After weeks of speculation and foreshadowing, it was all but a guarantee that Nese would join AEW’s stacked roster of wrestlers.
Tony Nese had been featured in the crowd over the course of the past month during various matches on both AEW Dynamite and Rampage. Last night however, Nese made his Rampage debut in a battle for the TNT Championship against current title holder Sammy Guevara.
Although he did not beat Guevara, Tony Nese put on one hell of a show in his debut match and proved why AEW decided to snatch him. Adding another athlete to the already talented All Elite locker room shows that Tony Khan and company aren’t playing games. They are here to bring the best wrestling product to the fans.
