The latest entrant announced for the Casino Battle Royale is former WWE star Tye Dillinger (Ronnie Arneil), who is being advertised under his former ring name Shawn Spears.

Arneil requested and was granted his release from WWE this past February, concluding his second stint with the company.

In his first run, he reported to Ohio Valley Wrestling and later Florida Championship Wrestling. While in OVW, he teamed with Cody Rhodes as the two won the OVW Southern tag titles twice. He was brought up to the ECW roster as Gavin Spears in August 2008 but only lasted until the following January when he was released.

He was brought back in 2013 to serve as a veteran presence among the NXT talent. In 2015, he caught fire with his “Perfect 10” character that gained popularity instantly.  He was brought up to the main roster after appearing as the tenth entrant in the 2017 Royal Rumble at the Alamodome in San Antonio and was assigned to SmackDown. It was his peak on the main roster as he settled into an underneath role and was not heavily featured.
