Tony Nese, a former WWE wrestler, was asked to select his favorite match.
It was Tony Nese’s match with Buddy Murphy from the 205 Live program following WrestleMania 35, thus this is a no-brainer for him. The match ranks highly for Tony Nese because of the difficulty they had getting the crowd to react, as well as the fact that it came after a week of wrestling.
“The second Buddy Murphy match would have to go up there,” Nese remarked. “It’s also for a variety of reasons. We were able to bring out the best in one another. This happened two days after WrestleMania 35, for anyone who didn’t know.
That’s the thing, this was in Barclays. The entire atmosphere, where we were, the fact that it was WrestleMania weekend, and not only that, but also the fact that we were the final conceivable wrestling event that everyone would watch after such a long week.
“I mean, there are folks, and you’d see a lot of the same faces at Axxess and then at NXT.” Then you see them at WrestleMania, then RAW, then Smackdown, and then you have the last hour of wrestling. And, listen, I’m going to say it. We were the guys with the least amount of experience since we were the least well-dressed, you know? And, of course, everyone has seen everyone they paid to see, right?
“Right now, all we’re doing is developing television material.” So you get into it, and we’re like, ‘Well, we just need to figure out a strategy to try to capture these folks for one final hour, one last 20 minutes,’ or anything like that. We believed we’d be up against something extremely difficult. Buddy deserves credit for this.
“He exudes a wonderful atmosphere.” He attracts a large number of people, so when they see him, they are really interested in him. As a result, that was quite beneficial. Yeah, by the end of the night, we were simply getting a reaction that even 205 doesn’t generally get.
So after all of that, and we still received that reaction, that weekend will go down as one of the most memorable for me.”
