Tony Nese refers to himself as “The Premier Athlete” – but is he the premier cruiserweight in the world?
A mainstay of the American independent circuit, Nese brings a certain confidence to the WWE Cruiserweight Classic. And, to be fair, that confidence is not unfounded. With one of the most impressive physiques in the Classic, a resume that includes contests against the likes of former Superstars Matt Hardy and Paul London, as well as a beyond impressive 450 Splash, Nese may just be one of the favorites to win it all … and we’re sure he agrees.
