ORLANDO, Fla. — Jason Lee wowed the WWE Universe with his nunchaku skills at the start of this week’s edition of Cruiserweight Classic, but Rich Swann’s infectious entrance music had the entire arena asking the Hong Kong, China, native one question before he locked up  with the fun-loving Baltimore native: Can you handle this?

Lee appeared to able to keep up with Swann in the early moments of the match, until the NXT Superstar flipped through a lucha libre-style exchange and connected with a big dropkick. Lee quickly adjusted his gameplan, trapping Swann in the corner and unleashing a flurry of devastating strikes. Swann recovered  and caught Lee on the ropes, jumping from the mat to catch his rival with a hurricanrana. The speedy Lee tried to go back to striking, but Swann countered with a roundhouse kick of his own. The strike left Lee in perfect position for Swann to show off his uncanny highflying skill and pick up the victory with an unbelievable Standing 450⁰ Splash. The win ensures that Swann’s dance party continues on to the Second Round, where he will take on Lince Dorado.
