Enzo Amore closed out a fantastic 2017 as WWE Cruiserweight Champion, but a bout of the flu trucked Muscles Marinara and sent him into the ER to ring in 2018. That means Cedric Alexander’s title opportunity is on hold, but luckily, the ascendant Cruiserweight got some help to start his year off right.
As Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari ran a message from Amore detailing his disdain for Alexander, the challenger arrived looking for a fight with whichever member of The Zo Train wanted to step up. They agreed under the proviso that the bout was a tag team match between them and whoever walked down the ramp, and Goldust, of all people, arrived to even the odds and kick off a truly bizarre tag team contest.
Alexander certainly impressed against Daivari, and The Bizarre One provided the difference when he tagged in against Gulak, taking out the entire Zo Train with a crossbody off the top rope. Gulak missed a discreet tag in the confusion, and when he focused his efforts on Goldust, The Bizarre One right-handed Gulak straight into a match-ending Lumbar Check from Alexander.
