Last week, Kurt Angle sanctioned two Fatal 4-Way Matches to determine who would battle for the right to challenge WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore. Rich Swann won the first, and now, Drew Gulak has prevailed in the second to each clinch their place in next week’s one-on-one match, setting up a potential confrontation between a member of The Zo Train and their ringleader (who had an interesting interaction with Nia Jax in the locker room area before the match began).
It was almost going to be a battle between Swann and Cedric Alexander, who’s been both a friend and tag team partner to the former WWE Cruiserweight Champion over the last couple of months. Alexander unleashed the full scope of his offense against Gulak, Tony Nese and especially Mustafa Ali, the high-flyer who matched Cedric move for move in the early goings and resurfaced for another throwdown toward the end.
Alexander even rallied from Ali’s astonishing springboard Spanish Fly to take out both Nese and Ali with Lumbar Checks, but Gulak blasted Cedric with a knee to the head before he could cover Ali, stealing the win for himself. Gulak had even planned to address the potential collision between himself and Enzo in the form of a PowerPoint presentation; alas, the show went to commercial before he could launch into his slides. That said, Gulak may end up making his point yet at Swann’s expense … and, perhaps, Enzo’s.
