Marella, whose real name is Anthony Carelli, retired from the ring in 2014 due to neck issues. He was released from WWE in May 2016 and has been working for Canadian Television as well as running his Battle Arts Professional Wrestling Academy in Toronto.
Last month, there was a six-man tag match won by a team from Destiny Wrestling over Battle Arts Pro Wrestling, with the stipulation being that if Destiny won, Marella would have to come out of retirement and compete for the Destiny brand.
