Hideo Itami & Akira Tozawa def. Nemeth Alexander & Scott James

Encouraged to team up by WWE 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick, Hideo Itami and former WWE Cruiserweight Champion Akira Tozawa – both eliminated from the WWE Cruiserweight Championship Tournament in the first round – did just that, forging a hard-hitting tag team against local competitors Nemeth Alexander and Scott James.

Tozawa and Itami proved relentless, using their respective hard-hitting styles to keep their opponents on the defensive throughout the bout. The Japanese duo proved to be on the same wavelength and displayed incredible teamwork that resulted in Tozawa scoring a pinfall with his patented Senton.
