Kevin Gates is not one to mess with — the popular rapper clocked a real AEW star Tony Nese during Dynamite on Wednesday… after being told his music sucks!!
It all happened at the Gas South Arena in Duluth, GA…where Gates stood ringside as the newly crowned tag team champion, Keith Lee and Swerve Stricklandcelebrated their titles in the ring.
During the segment, Nese and his on-screen manager, Mark Sterlinginterrupted the festivities… and the duo immediately went to Gates and demanded that he sign a petition to remove Strickland from the AEW roster.
Gates refused… which prompted Sterling, who said, “Like Swerve Strickland, you are untrustworthy and your music is worthless!!!”
After Tony stepped between Gates and Sterling…and BOOM, Nese went down with a vicious right hand from the 36-year-old “2 Phones” hitmaker.
Based on the video of the incident, it certainly looked like Gates had made contact with Nese… which sent him to the ground.
The AEW fans ate it up…applauding the AEW superfan for taking revenge on Nese for ruining the party.
Maybe next time Nese will think twice before coming for Gates’ music… or maybe we can see them fighting in the ring soon??
