AEW Unrestricted Feat. Tony Nese

Tony Nese clicked immediately with his AEW tag partner, Josh Woods. He talks about how they came together – and when and how Smart Mark Sterling was added to the mix as their manager. Tony recalls his early AEW: DARK match with Fuego Del Sol, his first in-ring experience with Orange Cassidy, and what it was like to make his AEW: RAMPAGE debut challenging Sammy Guevara for the TNT Championship. Tony also talks about his friendships with Swerve Strickland, Ari Daivari, Trent Beretta, and Alex Reynolds. He shares stories about working summer sleep away camps, how he got into body building and fitness, when he realized he wanted to wrestle, and why he was “ride or die” for Chris Jericho as a kid.

Tony Nese on his AEW: RAMPAGE debut against Sammy Guevara:

“As much as this was a big match for him, for me it was huge. It was my showing. This is to show all the AEW fans what I have to offer and what I can do.”

Tony Nese on working with Orange Cassidy for the first time:

“He’s one of those guys you’re just like, ‘Ahh, it’s gonna be a walk in the park with him.’ He’s amazing.”
