Tony Nese: I'd Fit In IMPACT Wrestling Perfectly

Where will Nese end up?

Tony Nese was released by WWE in the latest round of budget cuts on June 25. Nese had been with the company since 2016 and had spent recent months primarily wrestling on 205 Live. 

Where The Premier Athlete will end up next remains to be seen, but Nese told the Wrestling Perspective Podcast that he thinks he would be a perfect fit in IMPACT Wrestling. Nese also named multiple AEW talents as wrestlers he would like to face. 

"I feel like I'd fit in (IMPACT) perfectly. I feel like I'd fit in a lot of places perfectly," Nese said. "My options are out there and I have a lot of discussions to make. I'm not saying anything. Right now, my goal is to wrestle the people I haven't had a chance to wrestle. I have to brush up on my independent wrestling. I have a lot of friends in AEW like Alex Reynolds and John Silver. Me and Alex have wrestled like 110 or 120 times. I'd love to add a couple more to that. 

"Kenny Omega, I wrestled him on an independent show. It was a small show and he was on a long tour and just like 'let me get through this without getting hurt.' Matt Sydal, I've never worked with him and would love to mix it up with him. I wouldn't mind smacking MJF around."

Beyond possibly heading to a major promotion, Nese also revealed he has "a lot" of independent wrestling bookings in the works so it appears the former Cruiserweight Champion will be a busy man later this year.
