WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville vs. Austin Aries (Kickoff Match)

At WrestleMania, Neville faces his most formidable challenge since declaring himself King of the Cruiserweights, as he defends the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Austin Aries.

Since making his return at Roadblock: End of the Line, Neville has dominated the Cruiserweight division with a newfound aggression, capturing the championship at Royal Rumble and defeating all comers. Believing no one can compete at his level, Neville has welcomed any and all challengers to his throne.

However, one Superstar Neville did not expect to face was former WWE 205 Live color commentator Austin Aries. During an interview on the March 6 edition of Raw, Aries attacked the champion, later revealing that, with his injury healed, he was ready to bring the Cruiserweight division to the “A-Double” level. After defeating Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari in his first two matches back in action, Aries faced former Cruiserweight Champions TJ Perkins and The Brian Kendrick, as well as Akira Tozawa and Nese, in a Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match on WWE 205 Live to determine the No. 1 contender to the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.

Emerging victorious and punching his ticket to The Ultimate Thrill Ride, Aries has set his sights on dethroning The King of the Cruiserweights and claiming the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. To Neville, A-Double represents another competitor to be conquered in order for his reign of dominance to continue.

How will the next chapter of each Superstar’s comeback story be written? Will Neville’s reign go on, or will Aries bring a new level of competition to the Cruiserweights? The special, two-hour Kickoff begins tonight at 5 ET/2 PT on the award-winning WWE Network. In addition to WWE Network, the Kickoff can also be seen on WWE.com, the WWE App, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest and Google+. The second hour of the Kickoff also airs live on USA Network.
