Tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT opened with a first round matchup in the AEW world title eliminator tournament.
Sitting front row for the matchup was former WWE star Tony Nese, who the AEW commentary team not only acknowledged, but referred to as one of the hottest free agents in the industry. The official AEW Twitter account later repeated the phrase and shared a close up of Nese.
