Tony Nese was recently signed by AEW being released from his WWE contract. Why was Tony Nese released from WWE?

Well, Tony Nese was released by WWE to balance their financial books.

Vince McMahon and Co. have released multiple superstars in the past year, stating the reason to be budget cuts. Tony signed for WWE in 2016 after a successful stint on the independent circuit. Nese never made it as big in WWE. The 36-year old’s highest achievement was winning the Cruiserweight Championship in the preshow of Wrestlemania 35.

After his release from WWE, Tony Nese spoke to Wrestling Perspective Podcast about his situation and said releasing him would end up being a huge mistake in the long run. However, Nese said he won’t be complaining about what happened to him because it’s part of the business he’s in:

“It wasn’t a creative thing like, ‘we have nothing for you.’ It was straight up, like, what you hear on the internet, it was budget cuts. The company is obviously trimming some fat and whatever their plan is, unfortunately, business is business and I was on the shit end of that stick. When it comes to 205 Live and being on the show, the writing was on the wall with that, but my relationship with pretty much everyone, and my work ethic, and things people would tell me, that’s where I was kinda blindsided. I think it was business-related. Business is business and I can’t complain. In the long run, it’ll be their mistake.”
