Shawn Spears

Ronald William Arniell, better known by his ring name Shawn Spears, is a Canadian professional wrestler signed to All Elite Wrestling.

He is primarily remembered for his stints between 2013 and 2019 in WWE, where he performed under the ring name Tye Dillinger.

Born in St. Catharines, Canada, Arniell was a huge fan of wrestling as a child. He cited Jimmy Snuka as his favorite wrestler and it was precisely seeing the latter in action that prompted Arniell, in 2001, to start practicing wrestling under the guidance of Eric Young. He made his debut in 2002 for independent Ontario promotions such as Border City Wrestling and World Xtreme Wrestling. In 2005, Arniell made an appearance on the Heat in a tag team match against Rosey and The Hurricane.

Arneill made his All Elite Wrestling (AEW) debut on May 25, 2019 at Double or Nothing under his old ringname Shawn Spears in the 21-man Casino Battle Royale. Ronald has been married since August 2019 to Cassandra McIntosh, better known as Peyton Royce.
