Shawn Spears (fka Tye Dillinger) Announces First Post-WWE Appearances
August 5, 2021
Ronnie Arneill, better known to fans as Tye Dillinger, has officially announced his first post-WWE appearance since requesting his release from the company. He will also be reverting to his previous ring name of Shawn Spears going forward.
Spears will be competing for Create-a-Pro Wrestling in Lynbrook, New York on Friday, May 31st. It will be his first non-WWE appearance since 2013, against an opponent to be named at a later date. Create-a-Pro is the wrestling school owned and operated by WWE Superstar Curt Hawkins and Pat Buck.
The response has been incredible!
Thank you to all who have reached out and I’m excited to make my first announcement:

Spears will also be competing for Beyond Wrestling at the Electric Haze in Worcester, MA on June 5th. Fans in the New York area won’t have to wait until this summer to see the former WWE Superstar, however, as he will be appearing at the Heroes Hideout toy store in Albany on March 16th. This will be a non-wrestling appearance due to his active WWE non-compete clause, and will be taking photos and signing autographs for $20 a pop (or $30 for both).
