Anthony Nese comes from the state of New York and trained there under the instruction of Mikey Whipwreck.

In December of 2011, Nese signed on to join TNA. He was assigned to the X-Division and made a few appearances before vanishing from television in-ring competition for months. Wisely, Nese was released from TNA on May 17, 2012. The release was a result of Nese being scheduled for a tag team match for Pro Wrestling Syndicate iPPV on June 1, 2012 in Rahway, New Jersey. The match would include Nese teaming with Sami Callihan against wrestlers The Great Muta and Kai. Since Nese had been on TNA's X-Division roster for months without seeing any significant in-ring time, he asked permission to work the match for Pro Wrestling Syndicate. This request was denied due to the fact Nese was still under contract to TNA. Instead he was offered a release from TNA which Nese accepted.
