Ren Jones also appeared as a security guard on SmackDown in 2022. During the Liv Morgan & Tegan Nox vs. Iyo Sky & Dakota Kai match, Ren & Connor Braxton escorted the hooded stagehand, Xia Li, away.

In addition to his work in WWE, he has appeared on AEW Dark and regularly wrestles for AAW, CLASH Wrestling, and other indie promotions. In other news, the tension between Knight and Wyatt reached its boiling point.

LA Knight proposed a match to settle their differences. Wyatt accepted the challenge but promised he won’t go easy on Knight in a ‘Pitch Black Match’ at the Royal Rumble premium live event. Only time will tell what happens in that match. You can check out the tweets below.
