– Speaking to Joey G. for Wrestling Headlines, AEW wrestler and former WWE Superstar Tony Nese discussed his WWE run, and WWE shutting down a YouTube show about 205 Live called 205 Life, his idea for a WrestleMania entrance, and more. Below are some highlights:

Tony Nese on WWE shutting down their YouTube show: “We were doing that show the 205 Life. We had our own little YouTube show about 205 Live. Social media is getting big, we see how Woods is doing big things with UpUpDownDown, and everything so we’re like, ‘let’s create something of our own where everyone can kind of see us in our everyday lives.’ How the cruiserweights hang out together on the road and all that stuff. Really great concept, but the problem was we got we got shut down by the company so they were like, ‘Hey, you guys got to stop filming this stuff and put it out.’ We did have a lot of like backstage stuff and everything.”

On a big entrance he had planned for WrestleMania: “We had to create a WrestleMania entrance, and this was this was before I did Mania, but obviously I wasn’t going to get this entrance. Yeah, the idea was that I don’t remember it word for word, but I do know that the idea is I come out. And as I’m doing the AB count, you know, we have fireworks going off…eight times. First my music plays it starts off with a chorus, because like my song was like, Whoa, right? So we actually have like, you know, some high end New York chorus. And they’re doing that part for a while and then it starts to break out into the, the the guitar part and I’m coming down…ascending from the heavens, I’m coming down on this, this whatever they use crane or whatever. And as I’m coming down, the light shines on just me. And that’s when I start the ab count. And we got fireworks each time I counted or whatever. Yeah, so I believe that was the idea of the entrance. And honestly, I just want to say, you know, AEW might have the budget for this. I would say in WWE, there was 100% chance that would never happen. Right? I’d say in AEW, there might be a 10% chance that that could happen.”

Tony Nese was released by AEW last year. He signed with AEW last December.
